Do you need to have Buddypress installed to make Membership Pluginwork?

Hello,

I have just recently installed the Membership plugin to my website… http://www.ctbusy.com. I have struggled to get it functioning properly and wasn’t sure if that is because I don’t have Buddypress installed on my website yet. Does Membership rely on having Buddypress installed first?

Thanks and have a great day.
