OSCAR: Problems Getting Started - Data Tabs Grayed Out

OSCAR: Problems Getting Started - Data Tabs Grayed Out
I am having problems getting started with OSCAR.

I have a CMS-50D SpO2 meter.

I installed from OSCAR-1.0.1-r1-Win64.exe and created a profile.  I set my data directory to a non-standard path: C:\Users\WALT\Documents\0 PERSONAL\Medical\OSCAR Data .

I imported a number of .spo2 data files, and imported data directly from my CMS-50D. This created files in the Events and Summaries folders under that path.

Problem 1: The Daily, Overview and Statistics tabs are still grayed out.

Problem 2: In Preferences, Oximetry tab, I set SPO2 Desaturations to 90%. When I change tabs and come back, it's still 90%. But when I click OK and come back to Preferences, it's back at the 88% default.

Problem 3: I thought perhaps the non-standard data path could be causing problems, so I uninstalled and reinstalled OSCAR.  But this time it did not give me the option to enter the data directory and the old profile is still there. Is there a way to do a clean uninstall?

Thanks for any help.

RE: OSCAR: Problems Getting Started - Data Tabs Grayed Out
1.) The current released version of OSCAR requires cpap data to be imported before the other tabs become enabled. This is fixed in the next version, allowing oxometry-only usage.
2.) I've made a note of this and will add it to our Issues list.
3.) Some settings are saved in non-obvious places (the Windows registry, under OSCAR_Team) and we do not have an easy way to clean them out yet.

The Uninstall process does not remove any data Oscar might have created while it was running, including data in the repository which is where Oscar remembers your data directory.

The easiest solution is to start Oscar from the command line and specify the directory there, for example:

    oscar --datadir "e:\mydata\Oscar-data"
The current version of OSCAR is 1.2.0.  We recommend upgrading from any earlier version.
