Which version of windows minimum?
and other "Minimum Requirements"

The application supports Windows 10, 8.1 and 7.

There are no other "Minimum Requirements" in terms of needed HW or other SW. We use this on desktops, laptops and tablets with all kinds of configurations. From experience, we can recommend using a mouse and having a good screen resolution for ease of use, but it also works on a lower-resolution touch device!

If you have any problems with the application on your system, please contact us and we're happy to support!

This item should really be marked as an EXE file not a PDF. The PDF is only the instructions. And I'm on mac so I can't run it.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
