Transferring your data to GLUCOFACTS

Transferring the data from your Bayer blood glucose meter to GLUCOFACTS® DELUXE is easy. Review the information below to find out what is needed to connect your blood glucose meter to a computer.

The Contour® NEXT USB, Contour® USB and Contour® NEXT LINK meters do not require a cable to transfer data to a computer. They can each be plugged directly into a computer's USB data port, and they each come with Glucofacts® Deluxe Diabetes Management software installed. Please reference the information above for system requirements and meter compatibility.


If you own a Contour® NEXT EZ, Contour® NEXT LINK, Contour®, BREEZE®2, or Contour® LINK meter you will need to purchase a Bayer data cable to connect your meter to your computer. There are two versions of the Bayer data cable offered, one for use with a computer's USB data port, and the other that uses a computer's Serial Port.

Q: How can I get Bayer's GLUCOFACTS® DELUXE diabetes management software to auto-play from my CONTOUR® USB meter?


For XPTM users auto-play for this type of software is on by default. If it has been turned off you will need to modify your Group Policy or Registry Settings to enable auto-play. Please contact your IT support to enable auto-play. Changing Group Policy or Registry Settings should not be performed by someone without experience.



VistaTM users open the Start menu, choose Control Panel, select AutoPlay. Make sure the "Use AutoPlay for all media and devices" checkbox is selected and verify that the setting for software and games is "Install or run program".



Windows® 7 users need to navigate to the GLUCOFACTS drive on the CONTOUR® USB meter and double click the "Glucofacts.bat" file to launch the GLUCOFACTS® DELUXE software. In order to provide you with better security and protection, Windows® 7 has changed how it auto starts applications on removable media, like your CONTOUR® USB meter.



For MacTM users GLUCOFACTS® DELUXE software must be launched from the computer desktop screen.


Q: Why is it taking so long to launch Bayer's GLUCOFACTS® DELUXE diabetes management software?


The first time Bayer's CONTOUR® USB meter is inserted into a USB port several programs are loaded in order to use the USB storage. The loading speed varies by computer and could take up to a few minutes. Subsequent insertions should take less time to process.
