buy xp
« on: December 23, 2017, 11:14:11 PM »
I want to install some windows software for my glucose meter. It does not work using wine or crossover. Do I need to buy both win 98 and xp?

I don't think you have to buy win 98. I think you can obtain that abandonware legally and for free from this site:

I have only tried these windows versions in virtual box: windows 1, 95, 98 and xp. All worked ok. I guess that windows 7 will work, but you will need a well equipped machine to give the virtual machine enough ram or the entire machine (the real one) will be sloooow.

BTW Which   glucose meter are you using?
Does it connect to PC via IR   or mini-USB?

AccuCheck nano

No usb port, so I guess it's IR ?

I think so.
We've been using Accu-Check Active for several years. Now Accu-Check Perfrorma.
Both models have IR port but to transmit data to pc they need Accu-Chek Smart Pix Device Reader. It's rather expensive here.
Note that your device can store 500 test results in memory .
For further info read your device manual

No problem.

I keep a written log of my readings.
