I am planning to build a ticketing kiosk.

It will have a touch screen monitor, a ticket printer connected through serial port/parallel port and the app (I will develop) will be running on .NET framework 4.0. It should also be able to connect to the corporate newtork (LAN).

What are the recommended hardware and software requirements for this setup?

e.g. Win 7 - which edition?
       Would installing a normal desktop PC inside the kiosk be fine?

Hi,

Another contender:

With regards to hardware, you can use a PC, but have the following considerations:

1. Ventilation etc. - PC needs to keep cool
2. Alarms - consider tamper and proximity sensors
3. screen, keyboard and rollerball/mouse - these need to be fit for purpose and much more durable than standard offerings?

Suggest you look at beskoke kiosks:

If I'm going to use win7, what edition do you suggest I install? Will starter be enough or could I have problems when it will be installed on a corporate network?

Hi,

Most basic editions will not support Networking to corporate environments where they need to be joined to a domain.

Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise will do that, however - the latter typically requires Volume Licence so Professional is probably the best one for you.
