Arrow ResScan backtracked to Version 5.3 - [thread closed - new version is 5.4.1]
For some reason, ResMed has removed Version 5.4 from their website. If one logs on using a Clinician's account, they will see that ResMed has seemingly revoked version 5.4, and is now distributing version 5.3 for some reason.

Healthcareworker has added the download link to version 5.3 in the distribution email. (I think that was updated last night). So you may wish to re-request the download link via email as explained in this post. (forum login required)

From what I understand, version 5.3 is pretty much the same as the 5.4 version. I have no clue as to why they back-tracked on the version number.

5.4 has an unresolved virus signature.

Okay, thanks for the info Parker. Do you know that this is why ResMed has revoked version 5.4 or is just the conventional thinking from some users?

I know the virus signature was there, and that it was reported. I do not know whether it was real or a false positive yet.

RE: ResScan backtracked to Version 5.3 - Heads-Up
It had a few bugs in it as well. I posted it in another thread. No, I don't know if that contributed to the reason they yanked it out but it was annoying. FYI - Microsoft SE didn't/doesn't report it to be a virus.

RE: ResScan backtracked to Version 5.3 - Heads-Up
I have 5.4 version installed on my computer, download 5.3 version but still showing 5.4 version
Not going messing around with it any more, maybe 6.0 or something version coming soon

Lesson learned ... if something is working, don't upgrade it

Hi Zonk.

Just curious. Now you are using ResScan 5.3 or 5.4, does ResScan display zero for RERA events? Or still no mention at all of RERA in reported statistics?

Thanks
