The files created and used by Winner Design are often quite large due to the graphical nature of the data and program. It is recommended when running Winner Design in a network that all LAN cable, router and switch equipment support sufficient bandwidth - minimum 100 Mbit/sec. For this reason Compusoft strongly advises NOT to use Winner Design with wireless networks. Compusoft cannot be held responsible for, nor improve Winner Design's slower performance resulting from insufficient network bandwidth.

Winner Design installed on a peer- to -peer network is not supported. Winner Design requires a dedicated server environment, see table above for recommended Windows server. A network-attached storage (NAS) is not supported and cannot be compared to a dedicated Windows server. A NAS does not provide any of the activities that a server in a server-centric system typically provides, it is only dedicated to do file sharing. Linux servers from all distributors (Samba, Red Hat, Arch…) are not in any way supported.
