Once the supervising clinician has created an Initialized Home Use Client ID, it must be installed on the home-use system. The simplest method of installing the file is by using an EKC file. If performing a remote installation with a home use flash drive, an EFD file will need to be created and sent to the home-user.

Installing an Initialized Client File (.EKC) (Instructions for Home-User)

  1. Download the attached EKC file and save it to your computer's desktop.

  2. Connect your EEGer dongle to the computer - the EEGer dongle must be connected to install an EKC file.

  3. Open EEGer and navigate to Client>Remote-use Options>Install a new EEGer remote-use client (.EKC) from the top toolbar of EEGer's main screen.

  1. A window will appear prompting you to select the EKC file - navigate to your computer’s desktop and select the EKC file saved in Step 1

  2. After a moment, a confirmation message will appear - this Client ID can now be used for live sessions.

Creating an Emailable Remote Flash Builder File (.EFD)

Once a clinician has initialized a home use flash drive, then can use their EEGer system to create an EFD file. This file is only needed when remotely initializing a home use flash drive, and is not a recommended way of sending updates to the session plan or session permissions. 

This process can be started from the clinical system immediately after initializing a home use flash drive. Ensure that the home use flash drive is still connected to the computer and that the flash drive has successfully been initialized before attempting to create an EFD file. Once the file is created, the home-user will need to install the file onto their system.

1, On the clinical system, navigate to Utilities>Create/Install Emailable Remote use flash drive data from the top toolbar of EEGer's main screen.

Initializing a Home Use Flash Drive Using an EFD File (Instructions for Home-User)

Please note that initializing a flash drive will completely erase all information stored on the device without the possibility of recovery. It is recommended to move or backup any data on the flash drive prior to initialization.

  1. Download the attached EFD file and save it to your computer's desktop.
  2. Connect your EEGer dongle and a blank USB flash drive to the computer. This USB flash drive will be used to store your client data and must remain connected to the computer to run live sessions.
  3. Open EEGer and navigate to Utilities>Create/Install Emailable Remote Use flash drive data from the top toolbar of EEGer's main screen.
  4. On the menu that appears, select Create remote flash drive from mailed remote flash builder file to begin initializing the flash drive.
  5. A window will appear prompting you to select the EFD file - navigate to your computer’s desktop and select the EFD file saved in Step 1.
  6. A new screen will appear that says Click here to use drive [E:] for remote user storage - click this button (the drive letter may differ depending on your computer).

After selecting the drive, you should receive a message indicating that the home use flash drive is ready to use. If EEGer detects that the home use flash drive is already initialized at this stage, it will display a message asking if it’s okay to override the information.
