Office Versions

Office 2007 SP2 / 2010 / 2013 / 2016 applications for the relevant converters.

Hardware Requirements

This product works well on any server powerful enough to run SharePoint. The frontend layer is very thin, and the server running the Muhimbi Conversion Service experiences the most resource usage. We recommend using an existing or new app server for this.


This depends on the size and complexity of the documents that are converted and the number of concurrent conversions taking place. We recommend a minimum of 1 GB of total memory.


Any CPU that comfortably runs any of the supported server operating systems. We recommend one or more multicore CPUs.

Disk Space

This product requires 400 MB of disk space.
