EncoreBasic 2.4.8.0 CPAP Reporting Software [Archived read-only thread]

Quote:Admin Note:
This thread is now archived and closed to new replies. If you have a question regarding EncoreBasic, please start a new thread here in the Software Support Forum.

The new version of EncoreBasic is 2.4.8.0 Details below...


[for Philips-Respironics Machines only]

The EncoreBasic 2.4.8.0 software is now available via a free download solution. EncoreBasic is CPAP reporting software that includes charts to help you monitor your therapy. Like other CPAP reporting software, you will need a standard SD card reader (either attached to or included with your personal computer). EncoreBasic is designed to work with modern Philips-Respironics machines, including the newer PR System One 60 series CPAPs, BiPAPs and ASV units.

Some patients may be happier using the SleepyHead Software, as it may offer an easier-to-use user interface.

EncoreBasic is being provided to give options to members here who cannot use SleepyHead, or to print out reports that a health care provider will accept using a genuine Respironics software package. [Some will not accept reports printed with the non-proprietary SleepyHead software.]

If you'd like to obtain a copy of EncoreBasic, go to this thread in the Private Files & Links area:

Let me add that the .exe installation file is 279.3 MB in size. After you download it, before attempting to install, make sure you right click on the installation file, select Properties and check the file size. If it's not 279.3 MB (roughly), it might have been corrupted during the download.

It's always best to download large files like this very early in the morning or late at night in order to avoid any congestion on your local Internet Service Provider's system (which could cause file corruption).

If anyone has any problems, issues or questions, please post here and hopefully one of our EncoreBasic users can help out.

I have been using encore basic 2.1. I see the version now available is 2.2.2 which I have downloaded and saved, and not installed. My question is, are there any differences in the versions that would be helpful. Additionally, can I install both versions. I am using a respironics pro m with smart card and win 7x64

I believe the newer version has a few bug fixes and has been updated to work with the newer Series 60 machines. I don't think that you can install both on the same system. Perhaps it's possible if you change the installation directory for the newer version, but I'm not certain of that, as it might overwrite other files outside of that installation directory.

If you're happy with the old version, it still works for you, and you have had no bug issues, you probably don't need to upgrade to the new 2.2.2.0 version.

Yep, as noted in the thread in the Private Files & Links forum, many users have reported that it won't work on Windows 8 at all. Sad but true. Sad

Thanks for the report Clay-- did you try EncoreBasic 2.2.2.0 to see if it will work with your Win8 64-bit system?

Inquiring minds want to know... Smile

If 2.2.2.0 won't work with Win8, perhaps 2.1.2.0 should be distributed also for those folks with Win8 systems... Thinking-about

Update for Windows 8 / 8.1

We still can not install the software directly (version 2.2.2.0)... But...

1- If you can install it on previous version of Windows (7, Vista or XP)

2- Get the complete "Respironics" folder ... where you install ... normally ---> C> Programs Files (x86)> Respironics

3- Copy on a USB stick

4- Then transfer it to your Windows 8 / 8.1 PC to the folder you want.

5- In that folder, find the application EncoreBasic.exe, and right click it. Click "Properties" and go to the "Compatibility" tab. Check in "Compatibility Mode" ---> Run this program in compatibility mode for:

6- From the dropdown menu, choose Windows 7, Vista or XP. (personally, I took Windows XP Service Pack 3).

7- Click on "Approve".

(once done, right click on the EncoreBasic.exe application, and send a shortcut to the desktop).

It's done! Remains to run the software via the shortcut, and "magic" ... Now you can download your data in the software. And it works wonderfully.

Note : For those who can not installed the software on another PC with Windows 7, Vista or XP ... Maybe the site admin could provided for download, the "Respironics" file format. Zip ... you would only have to unzip the folder where you want, and follow steps 4-7.

Just copied from one network computer to another so I didn't have to move it on a usb stick, etc..

Worked perfectly. Even pinned it to the Start page.
