7.1 System requirements

The version 22 is the last IDES version which we make available. With this version you will able to report the data for 2022. Reports beyond the year 2022 are not possible. Please inform yourself on our help pages about the possibilities for the future report of your data.

New applications for reporting in this format will no longer be approved!


The operating system must be Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10 with a standard internet browser (for example Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge).

The screen resolution must be at least 800x600 pixels. The program will be installed on your system's hard disk.

The hard disk space needed for the basic version of the IDES software is 280 MB. This size grows with the data volumes to be processed and stored.


Note on using Java:

When installing the IDES program, the Java runtime environment (JRE 1.8.0_202) is installed on the machine. Although since the middle of January 2019 the updates for Java is charged, the current Java 8 version (202), also used in IDES 20, is still free of charge and can also be used in 2020 and beyond. When using the IDES program, even the versions available so far, there are no automatic update mechanisms for the currently used Java version. Also, when using the IDES program, Java will not be installed as a stand-alone program on the machine.


Important note:

With IDES version 20.0, a 32-bit compatible version of the program is available for the last time. The use of future versions requires a 64-bit compatible system!
