Information 
ResScan version 6.0

ADMIN NOTE INSERTED:
Updated March 9, 2019
Note from April 9, 2019:  Newest ResScan version is 6.0.1, see this thread:
http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-NOTICE-ResScan-6-0-1-now-available


IMPORTANT NOTICE:   Although ResScan 6.0 is the most recent version of ResScan, we recommend that you download and use ResScan 5.9 instead.  This is because ResMed has included a complicated username & password login system in version 6.0 which has given some users trouble.  There are no major changes between version 5.9 and version 6.0, so to avoid potential problems simply download and use ResScan version 5.9.

Follow the directions in THIS THREAD to receive instruction on how to download ResScan 5.9 or 6.0.

The email you will receive includes new download links for both ResScan 5.9 and ResScan 6.0





As of May 29, 2018, ResMed has released a new version of the ResScan software.  Please note this version will only work on Windows and will only work for ResMed  brand CPAP machines.

The new version is ResScan 6.0.

Please see this thread for information on how to obtain the new version:

http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...hines-only

(login required, if need be, please register for a free forum account HERE)

Since ResMed does not release a changlog listing what specific changes or updates have been done in this new version, we have no idea how this new version differs from previous versions.

If anyone has issues or comments about this new version, please reply in this thread.

ADMIN EDIT:

We've now included a link to download the older ResScan version 5.9 in the auto-responder email (click here for instructions on how to receive that email).

You login with your machine's windows login details, on my machine it was my hotmail account details as I was using that for my authentication

RE: New ResScan version 6.0
Okay, I'm wondering why this has changed in ResScan version 6.0?  In version 5.9, there was no login required, but now with 6.0 there is...

Anyone have a clue as to why this was changed?


FYI:

If this "login" requirement is a concern, you can still download version 5.9 or older versions of ResScan.

All you need to do to get the older version(s) is change the version number in the download link that is sent from the autoresponder.

For instance, change the "6.0" portion of the link to "5.9" or "5.8" or whatever.  A few of the older versions are usually kept on the server.

RE: New ResScan version 6.0
For clarification, the following notice was added to the autoresponder's download email for ResScan 6.0:



Quote:New "login" requirement for version 6.0:

Please note that when you run ResScan version 6.0, you will be asked to login using a username & password.    You should use the same username & password as you use to log into your Microsoft Windows user account.  CLICK HERE for instructions on how to find your Windows username.

RE: New ResScan version 6.0
I'm guessing two things; First, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has finally gone into affect on May 25th.  Second, HIPAA;s requirements for data protection.  Since ResScan is a Standalone program, there isn't(wasn't) any data access protection on the computer running ResScan.  My guess is based off of several security risk assessment audits and the elevnety-million questions targeted on this area.

RE: New ResScan version 6.0
Ok, thanks Red.  Makes sense.

So, my question is:

By logging into ResScan 6.0 with our Windows username/password combination, would this pose any sort of "risk" or concern to Windows users?

Also, does ResScan require us to log in using the Administrator username/password, or simply whoever is logged into Windows at the time of installation (normal user account)?

RE: New ResScan version 6.0
I don't see it as a risk concern of logging in more of an issue in knowing which account and password to use in a home environment, and the pain of having to do it when using the application.

RE: New ResScan version 6.0
Is ResScan ver 6.0 requiring you to log in each and every time the app starts up?  Or only first-time use or installation?

(currently running Linux, so I can't use ResScan)
