Windows Platform Prerequisites

This section describes the Cluster Manager, eMake, and Electric Agent/EFS installation prerequisites on Windows platforms.

For information about platform support such as operating systems, cloud-based and Kubernetes support, Make versions, eMake emulation, databases, bitnesses, and Visual Studio versions, see CloudBees Accelerator Supported Platforms.

Service Pack and Redistributables Prerequisites

The Accelerator installer automatically installs the Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 Update and the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) if they are not already installed. These are required for running eMake with Visual Studio.

Windows Prerequisites

  • Each host to run Accelerator software must be x86-64 compatible.

  • NTFS is required.

  • Registry mirroring is supported on 64-bit machines only if you use 64-bit eMake and 64-bit agents.
