Simply scan the first 2D barcode on the Left marked “Windward Configuration”. Wait for all 3 sets of tones. First tone is a double beep, then a warble tone, and then an Ascending tone.
If barcode scanner still is not performing correctly, scan the “Reset To Factory Defaults” barcode on the bottom, Wait for all three tones, and then scan the “Windward Configuration” barcode on the Top Left. Again… Wait for all 3 sets of tones. First tone is a double beep, then a warble tone, and then an Ascending tone.
These barcodes can be scanned directly off an LCD Monitor, however, if you are unable to do that, you can print it out and scan it from the printed copy.
Setup barcode scanner to com port emulation. See page 18 of the programming manual.
Manual can be downloaded from
Installed the USB to Serial driver
Windows automatically picked up the scanner and installed the drivers.
If the drivers are installed correctly it should look like this in the Windows Device Manager. The COM Port number will be different depending on which USB Port the barcode scanner is installed into.
Now you will need to open the POS Device Manager as administrator and set the port to the one in the Windows Device Manager (Shown in picture above). You may need to check the Keyboard Wedge checkbox as well. Once this is done, no other configurations are necessary. In this configuration, the STX Prefix is not needed. System Five and the POS Device Manager will be monitoring that port for activity.
Print the following document and scan the highlighted 2D barcodes in the numerical order specified.
