simulation buttons not working

simulation buttons not working

verion 3.0 of mca, the sample barcode .net app compiled and ran, but the Shift-F1 did not work and the configuration editor does not list the simulation buttons as per the documentation. The MCA application is running, visible in tool tray.

Hi dreabc

How are you testing SHIFT-F1?

The easiest way to test this is to open Notepad, make it the active window, and then press SHIFT-F1 and the MCA will populate the simulate barcode value into Notepad. For the SHIFT-F1 function to work you must have a application open and waiting for the data input from the SHIFT-F1 action.

The other thing that cause a problem is if you have the MCA tool tray application running, but the IntelHealthCare service disabled. Both need to be running.

Thanks,

Steve

thanks but still nothing. I checked to tool tray and the services. tried the notepad and button test app in the Intel...bin folder. The test barcode net app does read a bar code when the mouse button is pressed. I reinstalled the SDK for 2.0.1 as that matches the drivers on the target.
