There are three installer modules available for download.

Persistate Generator is a Visual Studio add-in which allows you to create Persistate applications.
Persistate Server comprises the Windows service running the Persistate server, and also the Persistate Configurator application which allows you to configure the service.
Persistate Viewer is a client side application which hosts the user interface for Persistate applications running in a Persistate Server.


For all modules

Microsoft Windows XP SP3 or later.
.Net Framework v2.0, v3.5 or v4.0 (but see the Limitations... section below).

For Generator and Server

Access to either SQL Server 2000 or later, or MySQL version 5 or later.  Permission to create databases is required.  Note that if you use MySQL, you will be limited to a single database in your Persistate domain.  This limitation is inherent in the .Net connector available for MySQL.

For Generator

Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, 2008 or 2010.

Limitations on using different .Net framework versions

Using Persistate, you can create packages using .Net framework version 2.0, 3.5 and 4.0.  These will be the default framework versions used in Visual Studio 2005, 2008 and 2010 respectively.  In the latter two versions of Visual Studio, you can also choose to create packages using framework versions earlier than this default.

There is a single installer for Persistate Generator.  This contains versions of the software using all three supported framework versions, and will automatically install addins for all supported versions of Visual Studio.  However, there are separate versions of Persistate Server and Persistate Viewer for each framework version.  Furthermore, these will support only packages created with the same framework version.  So if you create a package using the .Net framework version 3.5, you cannot serve it from a server or run it from a viewer for framework version 2.0 or 4.0.
