|Windows 7 or 10 (64-bit only)||Windows 10 (64-bit only)|
|Processor||Any Intel or AMD x86-64 processor||At least 2 logical cores are required to run a simulation. Any additional core can be used to accelerate a simulation or run multiple simulations in parallel.|
If you run the simulation on localhost you must have at least 5 GB left on your computer.
If you run in real-time you must have at least 5 GB left on the target.
In the following sections, the following symbols are used:
- %HYPERSIM_DIR%: The path to the HYPERSIM installation.
- By default, this value is C:\OPAL-RT\HYPERSIM\hypersim_version ; where hypersim_version is the folder of the current version, for example, "hypersim_2021.3.1.o187".
- %USERPROFILE%: The user directory. By default, this value is C:\Users\userName ; where userName is the Windows user name, for example, "JohnSmith"
- Note 1: HYPERSIM currently does not support spaces in this path.
- Note 2: In some rare cases, user names with capital letters may trigger errors when writing to the target code directory. If such an issue occurs, please use the Target manager Diagnostic to get additional information.
Installing HYPERSIM on Host
HYPERSIM installation requires administrator permissions.
The installation of solely HYPERSIM does not create any environment variables or registry keys. However, the additional accompanying toolboxes may create environment variables and registry keys.
Running HYPERSIM on Host
A Diagnostic tool is provided in %HYPERSIM_DIR%. This tool helps to validate that your setup has all the required permissions.
To run HYPERSIM, users do not need administrator privileges or an Internet connection.
HYPERSIM does, however, need the following permission:
- read/execute permissions in %HYPERSIM_DIR%.
- Most HYPERSIM processes start from this location, the main ones being:
|Process name||Usage||Ports||Permission notes|
|Hyperworks.exe||Design interface||13510, 32768-65535||You need an internet connection to use the target manager to request a target license|
|HyWorks.exe||Main HYPERSIM application||111, 600-1023, 13510|
|HyCore.exe||Target interaction application||111, 600-1023, 13500, 32768-65535|
|ActivationTool.exe||Host license installation||111, 600-1023||You need an internet connection to use the ActivationTool to request a host license|
|Hyperview.exe||Hyperview software||111, 600-1023|
|IOGuiFX.exe||I/O Interface and DataLogger configuration application||111, 600-1023, 17510|
|Scopeview.exe||ScopeView software||111, 600-1023, 13501|
|TestView.exe||TestView software||111, 600-1023|
|UcmBuilder.exe||UCM editor tool||111, 600-1023|
|Diagnostic_Tool||Setup analyzing tool||Needs to be run as an administrator in order to give a complete report.|
|hyServMain.exe||Simulation setup and interface||17510, 49152-65535|
|hypersim.exe||Circuit engine application||600-1023, 32768-49151|
The executables above may start any executable in %HYPERSIM_DIR%. They need to be authorized through the firewall.
Read/write/execute permission in %USERPROFILE%
- %USERPROFILE%/My Documents/HYPERSIM is the default location suggested for creating HYPERSIM models.
- Make sure any selected location or pathname is not very long--otherwise, the generated files may exceed Windows path length limitations.
- Logs and user preferences are stored in %USERPROFILE%/HYPERSIM.
- The localhost target default code generation is in %USERPROFILE%/HYPERSIM folder. A process with the name of the model starts from this location.
Running a simulation, on localhost or on a target, may use ports 17511 through 17599 for interaction with I/O Interfaces.
Note that Samba is no longer required from 2022.1.0
This step is only required for versions 2021.3 and earlier. To communicate with a Linux target, users need to ensure their SAMBA permissions are sufficient. Specifically, they need the option below enabled. If this option is missing, the Diagnostic_Tool can provide a solution on how to install it.
UDP ports 137, 138 and TCP ports 139 and 445 must be freed for the successful running of HYPERSIM, as Windows 10 disables them by default in certain configurations (e.g. guest access). Please contact your IT department in case of issues with Samba2.
HYPERSIM uses UDP protocol on ports 137-138 and TCP ports 139, 445 to exchange information between the localhost and the target.
HYPERSIM is compatible with all our Real-Time Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulator platforms. The system requirements of the platform will depend on the application and simulation demands.

Target permissions are configured before delivery, or during the first HYPERSIM installation on target.
Since HYERSIM 2021.3.0, multi-user mode is available on Windows targets in accelerated simulation (RTA) mode.
