Sleepyhead Software - current release
#1
I have older SH software (non-installer x64 version 0.98...)   It doesn't print some of the reports well.   I'd like to install the latest, but only see an x32 version for download; is there a 64 bit version?   Is the profile data compatible or will I need to re-import the past 10 years?   Has the printing functions been fixed, i.e., is it worth upgrading?

Thanks...

You can run both versions. Make a backup of your currently sleepyhead data and when you install the beta-2 release it will convert your old data to the new format. Your backup folder then is used by the old sleepyhead once you change the data folder location in it.

Beta-2 (and beta-1) were only 32 bit.

The 32 bit version is the only version available. I'm unable to discern any difference between the 32 and 64 bit versions. SH 1.0-Beta has a different format to store the data. When installing 1.0-Beta 2 it will look for a previous version and prompt you to approve a reformatting of the data. Since somethings were fixed and some got broken in 1.0, I would make a backup copy of the SleepyHeadData folder. . . in case you want to keep 0.9.8 around. The printing of the Statistics page has been fixed and doesn't look like microcode anymore.

I downloaded  Sleepyhead 1.0.0 Beta 2 snapshot Win 32-Open GL yesterday and everything worked fine. Today went to my download file to open and look at last nights data which I will need to read up on to understand everything more clearly. My problem is the only thing that happens is it opens the wizard to install not open to look at what is already installed. How do I open the file to look at the data already being loaded in this file? If I can't figure out then will just delete the program file since I cannot really use the program. I am sorry if this isn't the forum to ask this question as this is my first time to join the forum and I am sure this is probably my last change to get an answer to my problem. Thanks ahead for anyone who can help me over come my problem of opening the file without reinstalling and it won't do that even unless you delete the old file. Maybe I should also mention that I am using Windows 8.1 on an HP Pavilion 20 desktop. Hopefully I have included all the information for windows experts so you can tell me what to do to just open the file and not reinstall again. Thanks again.

Well, I am back and apologize for finding my answer finally myself. I did not know that there are three other files of sleepyhead when you download the program and they are in my "Documents" file. One is SleepyHead.exe which is the one I will be using to log in and read daily data I have discovered. The other two are SleepyHead-Broken GL.exe and a Maintenance Tool.exe. Hopefully, this will save some other new rookie from looking for the same answer and discover later that SleepyHead puts other files in another folder. Too bad they don't explain that there will be more than one file in the program and all the files will not be stored in the "downloads" file when you download the program. Sorry about taking up space then solve after I have posted.

I'm sure Maintenance.exe is the application that converts previous sleepyhead data to the new format. The Broken-GL is a version of Sleepyhead that doesn't use the Open Graphics Library (OpenGL) API. If your video card doesn't support OpenGL you would run this version of SH.

Thanks for the explanation Alan. I noticed that my program does not have the last two days. I am guessing that it is not wireless and requires that I upload the info every day for Sleepyhead to interrupt and show is this correct?

that is correct - you have to import it from the device first.
you can use a wireless-SD-card - there is one thread currently very active in this section of the baord about that.

One little thing regarding the "maintenance.exe" it is "just" the updater-tool. You can run that and you'll see
... the "data-format conversion" is done by SleepyHead itself (on first run or whenever needed)

If the graphs become glitchy, don't show up at all or look weird: use the sleepyhead-brokenGL.exe (or hit F10 twice / toggle the right sidebar)
