Oscar migration tool?
#1
Oscar migration tool?
sleep physician here running sleepy head on my laptop for several years.  I like to download SD info and go over the data with my patients during office visits.

Now trying to load Oscar on my same work laptop.  I've downloaded oscar, but when I try to run the software, I get the error message "found SleepyHead - You must run the OSCAR migration tool".

I cannot find this migration tool.  It will not allow me to complete my installation or go any further than this step.  I've tried uninstalling Oscar and re-installing but continue to receive the same message.

Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Oscar migration tool?
Welcome to the forum, and sorry that you are having trouble.

On the OSCAR download page there is a link

http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...stallation

Step 5 is migrating or coping SleepyHead data.
Try that, If that doen't work one of the OSCAR Developers will be along and will make it work.

That said,  I would really appreciate insight on how to improve OSCAR from your (medical) point of view.  The OSCAR team considers user input as VERY important.  We especially want your input as a Sleep Doctor because we feel you are in a very good position to help your patients.  It doesn't matter how wild and crazy your thoughts are but they could certainly help us make OSCAR a better product.

If you like PM me and I'll add you to the development team as an advisor.

Frustrating because now whenever I try to launch Oscar, I get the same error message.  I'm not even getting the option to migrate my old sleepy head data.  Just the error message to use the "migration tool".

Best fix may be to force OSCAR to open in a new directory.  Open a command window, navigate to where you installed OSCAR (Usually C:\Program Files\OSCAR on WIndows), and type the command "oscar --datadir OSCAR_newdir".  Note that there are two hyphens at the beginning of "--datadir".  That will force OSCAR to use a new directory.  It should also offer you the chance to migrate your Sleepyhead data into the OSCAR directory.

RE: Oscar migration tool?
Running OSCAR with a different datadir worked, in that it gave me the prompt to select a new data directory http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...dialog.png . This time, I selected "No" and it opened normally without importing my Sleepy Head data.

Is it possible that my old data directory was too large for OSCAR to handle? I had over 70 patients' CPAP data stored, so perhaps that caused an issue? Anyways, I've got it working now so it's not too urgent.

I will continue to post my experience here using OSCAR in my practice going forward.

No, OSCAR should not be limited by data directory size. It really deals only with one profile at a time and should not be bothered by any other profiles that might be present.

We look forward to any observations you have about OSCAR.
