What are the system requirements for Eviews 5?
EViews 5 supports most versions of the Windows Operating system including: Windows 98/Me/NT 4.0/2000/XP. With sufficient memory in your computer, you can tackle problems involving millions of observations or thousands of series. The only fundamental capacity limit is that no single data series or matrix may contain more than 4 million observations. And because we take full advantage of 32-bit Windows' virtual memory, you can work with data sets that exceed your system's physical memory.
