The Employee/Manager Self Service system (EMSS) is a browser-based Microsoft .Net system. It is recommended that the EMSS system be installed on a dedicated Web server machine. If this is not possible, it is preferable that the server containing both database and Web system be a dual processor server to optimise performance, as per Microsoft Web deployment standards. The EMSS system must be installed on a .Net compliant server, but can reside alongside other Web applications without any degradation in performance.

* Please note that .Net only runs on a Windows Server 2003 R2 or higher.

Details about making your server .Net compliant can be found at http://www.asp.net. These components are free from Microsoft and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Web site. The components are standard on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
