RE: OSCAR wants me to use Migration Tool
Read related posts but not too helpful. Let me be more clear:
Every morning I put SD card into computer slot.
Then first, I import fresh overnight data using OSCAR....Been doing that since it became available.
Then (2nd) I import same morning data using SleepyHead program.Been doing this for years.
Two separate data files using two different (but related) programs every morning.
NOW OSCAR does not work (see above message that it sent). It wants to migrate my Sleepy Head data file to it....Why the change all of the sudden?
I would like to continue with my two parallel daily data files as before. How do I get OSCAR to work as before and ignore SleepyHead files?  Please help..Thanks

Are you running Windows 10?

Yes and up to date. Don't feel comfortable opening the Registry.

RE: OSCAR wants me to use Migration Tool
There are reports of Windows 10 causing access problems as of late.  If you have an OSCAR_Data folder created, try moving or copying it to either your Documents folder or directly off of the C:\ drive.  You will then issue one of the following in a command prompt window.

If you placed the OSCAR_Data folder directly off of the C:\ drive:
  • type: C:\Program Files\OSCAR\OSCAR.exe   --datadir C:\OSCAR_Data  
  • press: <ENTER>

If you placed the data folder in your Documents folder:
  • type: C:\Program Files\OSCAR\OSCAR.exe   --datadir C:\users\your-user-name\Documents\OSCAR_Data
  • press: <ENTER>

Notes:
  1. There are 2 dashes ("-  -") in front of the "datadir".
  2. Replace "your-user-name" with your actual username.
  3. If you don't have a data folder created, you can still use the commands above and OSCAR will create one at that location.
See if this corrects your problem.

Good luck!

RE: OSCAR wants me to use Migration Tool
Once OSCAR Migration Tool grabs a hold it doen't want to give it up!!!!
Had to make a new D:\ProgramS\OSCAR folder....Unintall OSCAR and ALL SleepyHead files then reinstall OSCAR in drive d and SleepyHead in drive c:\....Took 6 hours as it continued to crash until ALL SleepyHead files were found and deleted.
Was lucky I had all past nights files still in my SD card.
Could not have done it without you guys and your suggestions   Thanks
