Auto update for Windows

You can use the auto update feature to remotely upgrade your emsCharts for Windows 4.x devices to v4.2.2.

To configure auto updates, go to the Mobile V3 Auto Update Restriction code table under Service Configuration > Code Tables and add a new entry for Version 4.2.2 (64 and/or 32 bits) and set Allow Automatic Update to ‘Yes’. Your 4.x devices will receive a prompt to update.

Important! If your devices are on 3.x, you must uninstall 3.x first and then follow the emsCharts for Windows installation steps to upgrade them to 4.2.2 manually. If your devices are on 4.0 – 4.1, you must click here and follow these additional steps before setting up the auto update.

Upgrade Required: ZOLL emsCharts for Windows

Upgrade Devices by June 10

One step we are taking to safeguard customer data is to cease engaging in data transmission that uses TLS v1.0 or 1.1.
On June 10, 2022, ZOLL emsCharts will no longer use these protocols to transmit data. Therefore, versions of our ZOLL emsCharts for Windows software older than v3.8.2, will no longer work without explicit user action to perform a software update to a newer version.

Postponement of TLS 1.0/1.1 Deprecation for ZOLL® emsCharts®

The following was emailed to ZOLL | emsCharts for Windows Administrators on January 27th, 2022

To accommodate the COVID-19-related resource constraints many customers are currently experiencing, ZOLL Data Systems has temporarily halted the disablement of TLS 1.0 and 1.1 set for January 30, 2022. We will communicate the new date for planned disablement after ensuring that all ZOLL emsCharts customers have resources in place and target dates for this migration.

Meanwhile, if you have resources available and have not yet prepared for the disablement, please complete the following actions as soon as possible.

Please ensure that your agency has upgraded all its devices to ZOLL emsCharts for Windows version 3.8.2 (released March 2021) or higher. We strongly recommend that all agencies switch to the newest version of the application, 4.1.

ZOLL Cloud EKG – Update

At this time importing ZOLL Cloud EKGs on emsCharts for Windows will only function correctly when EKG Report Image Type is set to Default (Leave as JPG, Bitmap).

Any EKGs imported with the setting set to either Single Image per PDF(multiple PDFs) or Multi-image PDF Document (single PDF) will show “Unexpected error” .

We are currently evaluating the work required to support the PDF import in the Windows application, but we don’t have an estimated delivery date to share with you yet.

How do I set EKG Report Image Type?

As an Administrator go to Configuration > Service > Code Tables > Web EKG Configuration

Click on ZOLL EKG Import Options

Scroll to the bottom of the window

Select Default (Leave as JPG, Bitmap)
