HARVARD MANAGEMENTOR 11 TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

What are the system requirements for HMM11?
  • Supported Operating Systems: Windows XP, Windows 7
  • Required Software: Microsoft Office 2000+, Acrobat Reader 8.X+, Flash 9.X
  • Supported Browsers: Internet Explorer IE 6+ or Firefox 2.0+, JavaScript enabled, Sun Java JRE 1.5.0+ (AICC implementations only)

Will HMM11 work on mobile devices?
Yes, you can access HMM11 through any Flash-enabled mobile device. Unfortunately HMM11 is not fully functional on iPads, iPhones, and iPods as they are not Flash-compatible. These devices can run portions of HMM11, but not the Flash components (full-motion video and animated videos). We are currently testing and compiling a list of specific tablet products that allow full functionality of HMM11.

Will HMM11 work on Mac products?
HMM11 works on iMac desktops, MacBook laptops, and MacBook Air using Safari, Firefox, and Chrome, as these platforms can install and run Flash. Unfortunately HMM11 is not fully functional on iPads, iPhones, and iPods as they are not Flash-compatible. These devices can run portions of HMM11, but not the Flash components (full-motion video and animated videos).
