  • No Program updates are available at this time.

  • One or more versions of Home and Office Emergency Preparedness (HOEP) can be freely downloaded and used for up to 21 days without charge.

    HOEP is licensed per physical (hardware) or virtual computer workstation. The license is computer specific. Multiple users can use the software non-concurrently at one computer on one license, but an additional license is required for each additional computer that the HOEP program files are installed on or used from.

  • Home and Office Emergency Preparedness (HOEP) runs on the Windows operating system. Most Windows based computers produced after 2003 should have the minimum capability to run the HOEP program. Specific recommendations follow ...

    - Processor: x86 Family 6 Model 11 (Intel) or equivalent, or greater.

    - Memory (RAM): 512 Megabytes. 4 Gigabytes or greater is recommended for optimum performance.

    - Hard Drive Disk Space: 500 Megabytes for program and user databases (suggested amount of space to reserve for HOEP). [The actual size of Emergency Preparedness user databases depend on the amount of data entered by the user.] An additional (temporary) 230 Megabytes is required for the installer package if it is downloaded instead of launched from CD.

    - Operating System: Windows XP (Service Pack 2) is the minimum. Windows XP with Service Pack 3 is recommended if Windows XP is used. Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 is the preferred, providing translucent Window display panels and optimum performance.

    - Internet Browser: An Internet browser program, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, is required to download updates, and to run Web connection functions within the HOEP program.

    - Email Program: An installed email program is required for HOEP to launch email connections from within the HOEP program.

    - PDF Reader: A program such as a Word Processor or Adobe Reader that can read HOEP program PDF information files (used inside and outside the HOEP program). Adobe Reader can be downloaded for free and then installed by double-clicking the file "Download_AdobeReader.bat" in the HOEP installation folder, or by clicking Download Adobe Reader here.

    - Internet Service Connection: An Internet service provider (e.g., AT&T, Timer Warner Cable, etc.) is required for Internet Browser and email connections to the Internet.

    - Media Player Program (Optional): A media player program, such as Windows Media Player, must be installed on your computer to view the in-program HOEP Tutorial.
