Before installing Quick Apps for SharePoint, ensure your system meets the following minimum hardware and software requirements:

  • Software and hardware requirements for Quick Apps for SharePoint are the same as those for SharePoint.
  • Quick Apps for SharePoint must be installed on one of the web front end servers. It does not have to be installed on all the servers in the farm.
  • Quick Apps for SharePoint requires administrator rights on the SharePoint server during installation. If your SQL Server is located on a different computer than the SharePoint server, ensure that you log in with a domain account that has administrative farm privileges.

To ensure that you have complete access to all the functionality, we recommend that you use Internet Explorer 8 or later for administrative tasks.
