BlueStacks app player installation requirements.

You can install the BlueStacks App Player on Windows machine as long as the following requirements are fulfilled: 

  1. You must be an Administrator on your PC. 
  2. Your PC must have 2GB of RAM/main memory. (Note that having 2GB or more disk space is not a substitute for RAM)
  3. Your PC must have 4GB  of disk space available for storing Android apps / games and their data.
  4. You must have Dirext X 9.0 or higher installed on your system
  5. The drivers for your PC's graphics drivers should be updated for compatibility with BlueStacks as described in the following post 

 

Additional requirements:

For Windows Vista:

  1. Your PC must have Service Pack 2 (SP2), or higher, installed. (You can install it through Windows Update) 

For Windows XP:

  1. Your PC must have Service Pack 3 (SP3), or higher, installed. (You can install it through Windows Update) 
  2. Your PC must have Windows installer 4.5  installed. (You can download it from http://download.microsoft.com/downloa... )
  3. Your PC must have .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, (You can download it from http://download.microsoft.com/downloa... )

The App Player is nominally installed in the same drive where Windows is installed, usually C:\. However, during installation, you may choose to have all of the apps/data located on another drive.

We do not recommend installing the BlueStacks App Player if you have a virtual machine, e.g., Microsoft Virtual PC, VMWare Workstation, or Oracle Virtualbox, installed on the same PC.
