ShoWorks requires only Microsoft Windows to run, however some users may decide to further customize ShoWorks using Microsoft Access.

If a licensed copy of Microsoft Access is located on the computer during the installation process of ShoWorks, the ShoWorks Access Companion will be installed and an additional icon will appear on the desktop.  This companion provides a clean interface to ShoWorks through Microsoft Access.  For more information and trouble-shooting tips about the ShoWorks Access Companion, please refer to article: How to edit reports using Microsoft Access with the ShoWorks Companion
