The HealthVault Device Logo Program is an illustrative example of this, evolved up to version 1.20 with the latest installment provided by the company. Works with Microsoft HealthVault Device Logo Program v1.20 went live on the Download Center on May 26, 2009, and is now up for grabs for all users with a genuine copy of Windows.
A member of the HealthVault device team enumerated some of the changes delivered by version 1.20: “There have been several packaging requirements added so the user has proper guidance on how to create a HealthVault account, download HealthVault Connection Center, Install the driver, Setup the device, Take a measurement, and upload the data to HealthVault. If the device ships with non-HealthVault software, it must not create a conflict with the HealthVault experience.”
