Did you get a screen shot of the error message?
This started with 9.2.0. By the time we get to Tableau 10, it will be asking for 10 million billion gigabytes.
In your case, I think the showstopper is the number of cores (it wants 4). If you had 4 cores, it would have let you continue with a slap on the wrist.
Installation failed because you only have 2 CPU cores and the requirement is 4.
Check out this link: http://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/server/en-us/help.htm#server_hardware_min.htm
Also, 4 cores is the bare minimum to install -- it's for non-production use, e.g. testing, proof of concept, etc.
8 cores is minimum for production environment. Keep in mind that minimum recommendation = minimum performance.
Thanks John, I clearly understand.
Right now we are creating our environment to test, evaluate, create our way-of-working and scopes.

And when I use 32bit version, the installer shouts a 'warning' regarding same issues.
I was able to install de 32bit version, and I'll continue with the configuration and initialization.
I still don't understand why windows shows me 4 processors and tableau installer does not.
Perhaps i3 is not enough ?
Anyway, thank you John, thank you Toby.

I believe Windows is showing 4 cores because of CPU hyperthreading.
Manually determining the number of cores on your computer
You can use the Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line tool (WMIC) to determine how many physical cores your server has. This is useful if you do not know whether your computer will meet the minimum hardware requirements for installing Tableau Server.
- Open a command prompt.
- Enter the following command:
WMIC CPU Get DeviceID,NumberOfCoresThe output will display the device id or ids and the number of physical cores the computer has:
In the above example there are two CPUs, each with six cores, for a total of twelve physical cores. This computer would satisfy the minimum hardware requirements for installing 64-bit Tableau Server.A longer command will list the logical processors as well as the physical cores:
WMIC CPU Get DeviceID,NumberOfCores,NumberOfLogicalProcessors,SocketDesignation
In the above example, in addition to the twelve physical cores, there are 24 logical cores.
Thank you John.
Very clear. Indeed this i3 has 2 cores with 2HT.
