The SI 2016 Client can be installed on as many machines on your network that you desire.


The SI 2016 Client must be installed on Windows, there is no Mac version of SI 2016. If using a Mac, you will need to install on Windows either in Bootcamp or Parallels.


You should install any third-party software you wish to use with SI 2016 like Visio and/or AutoCAD prior to installing the SI 2016 Client. If you plan to install these later, you will need run the appropriate Drawing Add-Ins Manager.

Port 1433 TCP

Port 1434 UDP
