  • Thanks for helping.

    I know that the Ingenico line uses the Telium2 platform. I have no idea what that is, or if it is compatible with Visual Studio.

  • POS for .NET is the programming solution to interact with POS devices - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms828083(v=WinEmbedded.10).aspx

    You will need a Service Object or OPOS driver for the signature capture machine to interact with the POS for .NET.

  • I thought they retired pos for .net? They retired the forums.

    For .net 4.0 is pos.net functiona? I think the answer is no.

    It says in the link that you gave:

    tp://www.nrf-arts.org/. POS for .NET is implemented for Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.1.

    I've read that part of the problem wast he adandoment of code signing or something in the .net 4.0 they abandoned that feature.

  • Yes, the forum was retired and directed to this one. There is a way to work with .NET 4.0, but you need .NET 2.0 in the system as well.

  • Do you have the POS for .NET SDK installed? If you try the SDK's test application and it works, you have everything setup correctly. Most of the basic PSO for .NET details are in my eBook: http://www.annabooks.com/Book_PGPOS.html

    There is also an KB update if you are using POSReady: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34799

    The tricky part with pin pads, is the software for the pin pad needs to be created first.

  • Sean,

    do you know about an update of POS for .NET 1.12 (which is now many years old)?

    Support for .NET4: no
    Working without trouble with .NET4: no

    Is POS for .NET dead?

  • I have held out hope as long as I can. It was clear there is an issue with Surface Apps interacting with POS for .NET, which might account for the delay. It doesn't appear that there is an updating coming.  We are stuck until there is enough industry traction to convince Microsoft to do an upgrade.

    I can say from book sales that POS for .NET is a very popular topic. The fact that the specific forum is gone and moved to this one is telling.

    Update: After an inquiry - looks like the next release of POSReady - WE8 Industry will support POS for .NET and .NET 4.x. The KB update I mentioned above resolves the issue for .NET 4.x, but .NET 2.0 is still needed.
