AbleCommerce 7 System Requirements

AbleCommerce shopping cart is a commercial ecommerce application designed for easy installation to your website.  A full 30 day evaluation with free software and installation support is included. To obtain support, login to your customer account and click on the Support tab.

AbleCommerce simply requires that your website be capable of running Asp.Net applications, and that you have a Microsoft SQL database.  AbleCommerce can be securely installed to shared hosting facilities that require medium trust applications.



Software Requirements

The AbleCommerce application totals around 60mb in size with over 8500 files.  Using FTP or similar, the software is uploaded to the website and installation requires a connection to a new empty database.  The computer's hardware and software must meet the same minimum requirements given for the Microsoft .NET Framework.

The list below indicates each component required for the installation, and additional supported options for each.


  1. Microsoft Windows 2003 or 2008 Server

  1. A website using Microsoft's Asp.Net Application Framework
    The following versions are supported:

  1. A new (empty) Microsoft SQL database for data storage.
    The following versions are supported:

* Microsoft's SQL Express is a free, easy-to-use, lightweight version of SQL Server.  Download

AbleCommerce can also be run from local systems in order to work with a development tool like Visual Studio. AbleCommerce is compatible with Visual Studio 2005 through 2010, but since it uses a web site project model, it cannot use the deployment as a precompiled site feature without customization.

Optional Software Requirements

If you plan to use PayPal or Cybersource payment gateways, you must additionally install WSE 3.0.  

You should install WSE 3.0 before installing AbleCommerce. However, if you need to install WSE 3.0 after AbleCommerce is installed, then you will need to backup the web.config file and replace it when finished.


If you would like to install AbleCommerce to the .NET Framework version 2.0, you must install the AJAX Extensions separately. Download  

Again, this additional software is only necessary if you are using the .NET framework version 2.0.


Hosting Requirements


AbleCommerce offers professional hosting services and support.  
Ecommerce hosting plans starting at $99 per month.



Browser Requirements

AbleCommerce is installed and fully administered with a web browser.
