Metalogix® Essentials for Office 365

Updated June 2020

Version  2.6

Getting Started

This section provides an overview of the steps required to begin using the product.

Installation Requirements

The Essentials desktop tool is a multi-threaded/multi-tasking application.  As such, available system memory is the most critical parameter for optimal performance. The following are the system requirements for optimal performance:

·Product Version: 64-bit - 8GB+ of RAM. To increase memory, start Metalogix Essentials for Office 365 and go to Help > Profile Manager > Memory Management.

·Processor:  Intel Core i3 or AMD FX 6300  or higher processor.

·Operating System: Windows 8 or higher; Windows Server 2008 R2 or higher.

·Workstation/Server: Many customers install the application on Virtual platforms, however we recommend using an isolated workstation rather than shared servers.

·Connectivity: We recommend a hard-wired network connection over wireless.

·Software: We recommend you turn off all antivirus software on the workstation where Essentials is installed. Otherwise, it may affect the tool.


The Essentials Setup Wizard is launched once the installation process is begun.

The actual features and modules available to the user are controlled via the activation code.
