Rescheck Desktop is now missing essential codes and the list keeps growing. It used to be that Rescheck. If you are an energy nerd like me you realize that the list of supported codes in the newest version of Rescheck Desktop 4.7.1 is down significantly.
First, lets take a look at Rescheck Web. It includes the most codes. Most importantly IECC 2018.
The others it includes are: IECC 2009, IECC 2012, IECC 2015, IECC 2018, Florida 2017, Georgia 2011, Massachusetts 2017, North Carolina 2012, Peuorto Rico, Utah 2012, Vermont 2011, and New York 2016.
The only ones I can see that it does not include are the Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling Code and New York 2020.

Next lets looks at 4.7.0 Rescheck Desktop Software. This is the final point of support for many state supported codes.
This version includes: IECC 2009, IECC 2012, IECC 2015, Florida 2017, Georgia 2011, Massachusetts 780 CMR, New York City, North Carolina 2012, Puerto Rico, Utah 2012, and Vermont 2011.
The main versions that this version of Rescheck Desktop is missing is Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling and IECC 2018.

Finally the big change in Rescheck Desktop in maybe the past decade is that many of the codes supported in Rescheck Desktop and Rescheck 4.7.0 are no longer supported in Rescheck 4.7.1. So let’s take a closer look.
This version includes: IECC 2009, IECC 2012, IECC 2015, Florida 2017, Massachusetts 780, New York City 2016, New York City 2020, Puerto Rico, Utah 2012, and Vermont 2011.
The main versions missing are Georgia 2011, IECC 2018, North Carolina 2012, and Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling Code:

The main work around from this is that when you upgrade to 4.7.1 do not allow the software to overwrite your older Rescheck software. This will allow you to keep creating Reschecks for Georgia 2011, North Carolina 2012, and Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling on your desktop. Their are pleny of jurisdictions in each state that still require these codes for any building permit with no substitutes accepted.
