System requirements

SolarBeam needs .NET 2.0+ or Mono 2.0+ to run and a display resolution of 1024x768 or higher.

On a Windows system, .NET is most likely already installed (comes preinstalled on Windows Vista), but if not you can download it here.

If you are not running Windows (or if you prefer Mono), Mono runs on every major operating system. You can download it here.
