The new ECCP READER (10.1) for Mac OS has been built and is posted for distribution (certified by Apple). This new build is compatible with OS 11.x ("Big Sur") as well as previous Mac OS back to 10.2. It points to the integrated site, of which ECCP for the WEB is now a division.

Installation note: Your computer should ask you only whether you wish to open an application downloaded from the web (you say yes) As the dmg will inform you, drag the icon for the folder (not only the application) to your Applications folder. You may wish to make an alias of the app itself (inside the folder) for your dock.

ECCP READER for Windows is now posted for download. This version of the software is not codesigned, which only means that you may have to manually give it permission to open. A codesigned version of the same software will be posted when the documentation is completed with Microsoft. This version is built for Windows 10. If you are using an earlier version of Windows, continue to use the earlier version of ECCP READER.
