    質問

  • Hi Guys

  • Did you set the mode for the scanner to USB HID instead of keyboard emulation?

    Does the scanner appear in the TestApp that comes with the SDK?

    Which model is it?

  • The user manual should have information about setting the mode. Basically, you have to scan some bar codes.

  • POSDM.EXE is a command line utility. You have to open a commnad window to run it, and the command window must be openned with elevated privaleges.

    Sounds like you are just starting. You might want to look at a few resources:

  • I have read your link which you refer in last post

    I am able to run SOM instead of POSDM.EXE
    I have already installed POS.Net 1.12


    SOM did not find my scanner, which I have attached with my PC via USB
    Also My scanner in device manager showing under Keyboard category as (HID Keyboard Device), Is it OK

    My questions are

    Do I need to install driver for my scanner “Honeywell MS 5145 Eclipse” if so then where I can download driver for this scanner

    Do I need to install OPOS Driver?  (What is for)

    Thanks very much for you’re supporting

  • For the scanner to work with POS for .NET, the scanner must be switch to USB HID mode. Right now, it i acting like a keyboard wedge. The scanners user manualy should have scan codes to switch it to USb mode. A service object and OPOS driver act as the link from the hardware (USB HID mode) to the POS for .NET run time.

    My book covers this in detail with examples of a HHP scanner.

  • Hi,

    I have also installed the driver for my scanner “MS5145_OPOSInstall.exe”

     

    But MetrOPOSAdministrator Tool does not recognize the scanner

     

    When I test my scanner, then I am getting this Error

     

    “The Scanner cannot be tested because the OPOS driver could not communicate

    to the scanner

    Please make sure you have the scanner connected to the system”

     

    Device information screen does not have the scanner information

     

     

    Also I have scan USB interface barcode, but did not work

     

    In previous post, you said I have to change scanner mode to USB HID, please let me know what is the process of change the mode of scanner

     

     

    What step I am missing, please let me know,

     

    Please help me

    Thanks

    Rizwan

  • If you are having problems with switching the scanner to USB mode, you should talk to the scanner manufacturer directly. It is challenge to see what is going via a forum.

  • My scanner is already in USB HID mode,

     

    My Scanner has both modes simultaneously

     

    a)      USB HID

    b)      Keyboard

     

    Please see attached image from Device manager screenshot

     

      

    is this OK ?
