System Requirements

Win4K3Suite was developed to run on modern PC hardware and Operating Systems.

Video Requirements:

A HD capable monitor of 1920×1080 is recommended.  Dual monitor systems are also recommended.

The minimum requirement would be 1600×900 and a dual monitor setup.  Most laptops available today offer 1920×1080 for a small premium.

Operating System:

Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10 64 bit is recommended.  32 bit versions will run however, the 32 bit Avermedia Driver for the P3 Video capture device is not stable.

Windows XP is supported as long as Microsoft supports it which means that as of December  2016 it isn’t. However, the only issues so far has been a requirement for different icon sizes during development.  It is supported as long as it works!


A modern dual core computer capable of HD video is recommended. 4GB of RAM is the minimum and 8GB or more is better especially if you run many third party apps simultaneously.  Of course this means a 64 bit operating system for the additional ram.

Panadapter Requirements:

For the K3, LP-PAN or the SoftRock II Lite:

Stereo capable sound device such as an onboard Realtek HD Audio, the ASUS Xonar U7 (best)  or the E-MU 0202 or 0404 (both obsolete).

For Laptops, use an outboard USB sound device that has a stereo input. Few laptops do.  Please keep in mind that the quality of the panadapter display will be solely determined by the quality of the sound adapter. $10 boards, while they might work are not necessarily adequate for a high performance panadapter.

For the SDRPlay and the K3 or K3S

Both these radios require the IF out option board in the radio

For the SDRPlay and the KX3 or KX2

Both these radios require an outboard Transmit / Receive switch using the PTT output on these radios such as the MFJ-1708.  Use without such a switch may FRY the SDRPlay during transmit!
