The free SleepyHead software is now working for DreamStation machines. Although the EncorePro software will work for DreamStation machines, SleepyHead is a much better package than the bloated EncorePro software. You can download it for free here:
The new 184.108.40.206 version of EncorePro is working with Philips-Respironics DreamStation machine data.
Note: some have "rounded up" the version number, calling this version 2.18, but it's really version 220.127.116.11:
EncorePro version 18.104.22.168 for DreamStation Machines
Quote:Admin Edit 2-23-17: EncorePro 2.20 is now available (newer than the one referenced in this thread).
Please see this thread:
Although this EncorePro 22.214.171.124 software is bloated and designed for multiple patients, unfortunately, it's the only software package available at this time that will work for the newer DreamStation machines. The download files are huge, (the Windows 32-bit version is about 265 MB and the 64-bit version is about 276 MB)
This is for DreamStation machines only - If you have an older 50 or 60-series PR System One machine, we DO NOT recommend that you download this software. Instead, use either SleepyHead or EncoreBasic - as they run faster, are less complicated, easier to use and do the job just fine.
Please go to this thread in our Private Files & Links area for instructions on how to obtain the EncorePro 126.96.36.199 software for your DreamStation machine:

Installation Note: When you install EncorePro 188.8.131.52, it may appear to sit idle for up to 30 minutes or so during the installation process, but it will then finish and run OK.
After you download the file(s), you must (initially) use the following credentials to unlock the software:
User Name: EncoreAdmin
The program will then FORCE you to reset your password. You may choose any new password you wish, but you must enter it twice in the spaces provided, then hit enter. You will continue to use the EncoreAdmin username but from that point forward, you must use your new password (not "password1").
