for some of the new features present in this release compared to the original AkWarm 1.03 release.
Software Requirements and Installation
- Your operating system must be Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7. If you are using Windows XP,
your installation must have at least Service Pack 2 installed. To install the most recent
Windows XP Service pack, go to the
Windows XP Service Pack 3 web page.
- You must have Microsoft Word version 2003, 2007, or later to view
and print out the Improvement Options Report.
- Click the link near the bottom of the page to download the setup program for the
AkWarm 2 software.
After clicking the link you may be able to directly "Run" the setup program or you may be
forced to save it to your hard drive. If you save it to the hard drive, you should then "Open"
the saved file or double-click it to start the installation program.
- For some computers, the installer will first install the Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5
Service Pack 1 (SP1),
which could take as long as 40 minutes on slow Internet connections.
All installations of future releases of AkWarm on your same computer
will not require this lengthy process and will install quickly.
- After installing the software, you should have an icon on your desktop to run the software
or you can find the program in the "AkWarm" program group under the start menu.
This version of AkWarm implments a new Rating Certificate format, a PUR 101 report, and
the ability to select heating equipment for Steam or Hot Water District Heat.
