See the requirements for different miscellaneous or optional components below:
QPR 2016.1 supports SVG graphics in QPR Portal with Microsoft Internet Explorer (built-in from version 9 onwards) and Mozilla Firefox built-in viewers. However, the built-in SVG is not supported for Microsoft Internet Explorer in the Compatibility Mode.
Note that the server computer needs to be set to use the default 100% font size. Larger sizes may cause display issues with SVG views.
Note: You can use also Microsoft Silverlight (see requirements below) instead of SVG.
Silverlight Requirements [Deprecated in release 2016.1.0]
QPR 2016.1 supports Microsoft Silverlight. See the table below for notes about browser compatibility:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 11
Tested with 5.1
Note that the server computer needs to be set to use the default 100% font size. Larger sizes may cause display issues with Silverlight views.
Note: You can use SVG (see requirements above) instead of Microsoft Silverlight.
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1 is required for using QPR Web Services Foundation and QPR Add-In for Microsoft Office 2010/2013. If you select either of the features to be installed and you do not have the framework installed, it is installed during the QPR 2016 installation. However, the .NET Framework installation requires an Internet connection, so without a connection you need to acquire the framework by other means. If you wish to install the framework before installing QPR 2016, you can acquire it from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=0a391abd-25c1-4fc0-919f-b21f31ab88b7.
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or later is required for using QPR Metrics Client and QPR Web Application Server. QPR 2016 installation will install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 if it is not present on the computer and QPR Metrics Client and/or QPR Web Application Server is selected to be installed.
Using the QPR Add-In for Microsoft Office 2010/2013/2016 requires Microsoft Word 2010, Microsoft Word 2013, or Microsoft Word 2016 and Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime 4.0. The VSTO runtime is installed during the QPR Add-In for Microsoft Office 2010/2013/2016 installation in the case they are not present on the machine.

In multilingual environments you may need to install additional fonts to computers running QPR Modeling Client and/or QPR Metrics Client. On Windows 7 and newer systems the necessary fonts are usually installed by default. This can be done in Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages -> Supplemental language support. Note that you will have to reboot the computer after installing the additional language support files.
