In support of the OSCAR Manual, a decision
support system has been developed to assist in each stage of the RDP. evaluation process.
A Beta version of the software is available from the download link below:
Version (1.1.9) of OSCAR software (17.1 MB)
Once you have downloaded the zip file, unzip the MSI file, run
it and then follow the on-screen instructions to install the software.
(Please uninstall/remove any previous versions of OSCAR before installing the new version)
For more detailed installation instructions - click
here to view the ReadMe file.
Upon starting the software after
installation you will need to download one or more OSCAR databases. A database is
available for each country in the EU-27. To view a demonstration on how to download the
databases click here.
The software has a built in
(semi-automated) updating process for the software core and database updates. However, in
some instances (e.g. where proxy servers are involved) this may not function correctly. To
overcome this issue a manual download and install facility is available - click here for details.
Please note that the software is a Beta
version and therefore it may contain bugs and errors. Additionally the data it contains
can also be regarded as a Beta version, therefore the outputs should not be used as the
sole basis for any decisions.
A video demonstration is included within
the software (under the Help menu) as a guide to help you understand how to use the
software. To access these files directly, click here.
Please report any bugs or errors you
experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. When reporting bugs
and errors please provide as much detail as possible about what you were doing when you
experienced the problem, e.g. on what screen, which buttons pressed, what data entered,
error numbers displayed, etc. We would also welcome more general comments and feedback on
the software to help us develop it in the future.
