System requirements

The BBT software runs on Microsoft Windows only. We recommend Windows 11, but previous versions such as Windows 8 and Windows 10 will work as well.

See Installation for information about the other (free) software dependencies.

For effective and smooth timing of events we recommed your computer to have at least:

  • A newer Intel Core i5 or i7 CPU
  • 8 GB memory
  • SSD harddisk

These are not strict requirements but a guideline as you want to be sure to match the capacity of your hardware with the complexity on your events. For example a marathon with 20.000 runners will challenge your hardware much more that a 5k fun run with 200 participants.

BBT is making very limited use of the disk in your computer. Thus, a fast disk (SSD) is preferred over a big disk. However, please note that video recording will require much disk space.
