The table below provides minimum system requirements
Supported operating systems
Although Windows® 7 (32-bit or 64-bit edition) is supported, we recommend updating to Windows® 10 (64-bit edition) or Windows® 8.1 (64-bit edition) with latest service packs installed. You will, however, need to uninstall any versions of CorelDRAW earlier than X6.

BERNINA Embroidery Software 8 occupies up to 5GB of hard disk space, depending on options installed. CorelDRAW Essentials also takes up an additional 3GB.
Some controls may be hidden on the user interface if you run your monitor at low resolutions. The physical size of your monitor will have a bearing on the optimum screen resolution. Larger fonts will exacerbate the problem. If you experience visibility issues, try adjusting both screen resolution and font size. For example, a resolution of 1366 X 768 with a font size of 100% or 125% should be acceptable.
