Troubleshooting:

  1. If Windward SCAN App cannot connect to POS Device Manager, check the IP address in the settings of the Windward SCAN App
  2. A single scan returns a qty of 2 or more
    1. Check to see if there are multiple instances of the App running
    2. Close Windward SCAN App and start again (may need to do this multiple times)
  3. Can we use it on multiple workstations?
    1. Yes, if you change the IP Address (and Port) in the Settings of the Windward SCAN App to the workstation you want to use and the RMR is setup on that workstation
  4. Will it work with barcodes that represent a serial #?
    1. Yes, if the serials are loaded into System 5 then it will be able to match the barcode to the serial number
