CalEEMod (Version 2016.3.2) was programmed by Trinity using Microsoft SQL Compact Edition in conjunction with a Visual Basic Graphical User Interface (GUI).
CalEEMod requires the following system requirements:
- Microsoft Windows 8 or 10 Operating System with Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)
- Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7 Operating System with Microsoft .Net Framework 4 or higher
- Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2
- Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable, 32-bit
- 300 Mb hard drive space available

- Ensure you have the required Microsoft .Net framework installed on your machine.
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 is available for free from Microsoft at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21.
