Windows XP, 7 or 8
Any standard, off the shelf model, will do.
Will also run on Windows 98, if your best bet is dusting off a freebee someone found in their closet.
Any printer will do, a local one is the best.
The Honor Level System uses a shared folder on your network drive for both the Simple and Full Networking options. This directory works like a drop box. Each work station runs it's own full version of the software and must have its own working directory separate from all the other workstations. This is usually on the local drive.
Each user must have full privileges in the shared folder as the software will want to create files, rename files, and delete files.
The shared folder should be in a parent folder that has been mapped to the local machine. The shared folder should not look like the root of a drive.
g:\hlsShared is good.
g:\ will cause problems.
The program will not accept UNC paths to network folders.
LOCAL WORKING DIRECTORY
The program uses a folder to store its data, usually, on each local machine. The default path is c:\hls\hls14 where the last two digits are the calendar year for the beginning of school in the fall. The c:\hls folder may contain directories for previous years each one recognizable by the ending pair of digits. The software allows easily access to archived data from these folders making calls to district tech support personnel rarely necessary.
The user will also need full privileges to this working directory.
In the past the application files were stored in the 'Program Files' directory. Windows 7 and higher can get very possessive of this folder so we now recogmend that new installations use the Alternate Location option when installing so that all the application files will be located in a sibling folder to the data directory. This path is usually: c:\hls\Honor Level System\
