Follow our system upgrades on TWITTER

Weekends in April and May will involve large changes to our infrastructure.  We will be expanding our virtualized environment, building out our storage and redundancy, and expanding systems.   While we do this, there will be some scheduled downtime.  Aside from e-mails with pre-planned outages, you can follow our up-to-date system maintenance on Twitter; .

TrialWorks HYBRID

TrialWorks Hybrid is the next generation of our law office case management software. The new platform utilizes Microsoft Office 2007 infrastructure to deliver advanced functionality and a better user experience. Although many of our advancements affect the overall function of TrialWorks, there are some interface changes; most noteworthy is the addition of the RIBBON navigation structure prominent in all Microsoft Office 2007 products.

  1. What are the minimum requirements to run TrialWorks Hybrid?

    Machines must have a minimum of 512 MB RAM, a P4 or higher CPU, and 200MB disk-space locally to install TrialWorks Hybrid. Some machines may have 512MB with some fraction dedicated to video. These machines will FAIL the pre-requisites checks and will not be able to continue the installation. This is why our MINIMUM REQUIREMENT IS ACTUALLY 1024MB RAM or 1.00GB. Performance depends on the amount of free memory available and the load on the system, we recommend at least 2GB RAM.

    The machine must also be Windows XP Professional, Windows VISTA Business/Ultimate, or Windows Server 2003/2008. TrialWorks Hybrid has been successfully tested in both 32bit and 64bit environments but 64bit compatibility has not been finalized.

    The minimum screen resolution supported by TrialWorks Hybrid is 1024x768.

  2. Do I need Microsoft Office 2007?

    You do not need Office 2007 to run TrialWorks HYBRID; this version is backwards compatible with Microsoft Office 2003. Please note that Office 2000/2002 releases are not supported.

  3. What makes TrialWorks Hybrid so different?

    The biggest difference is in the change from Microsoft Access 2002 Runtime to Access 2007 Runtime, which gives TrialWorks many new possibilities in managing your case information. Additionally, the installation routines have been completely redone making deployment and upgrades simpler than before on workstations and terminal servers.

  4. Can we run TrialWorks Version 9 and Hybrid on the same system?

    No, the two products will not co-exist on the same machine due to the change in Access Runtime.

  5. Can we run TrialWorks Version 9 and Hybrid on the same network?

    No, TrialWorks Hybrid requires a database upgrade which forces all clients to obtain the latest release.
