External scanner with Intermec Handheld devices will not work.

Version 2

    Verified Product Versions

    Terminal Emulation 7.3

    Environment: Intermec devices (example: CK71 WM6.5, CK3X WM6.5) with integrated scanner using an external scanner (BT, Serial). TelnetCE (v7.3.189 and older) clients.

    Problem: With scanner connected to the device, and working, when the TelnetCE is launched the scanner stops working (no Beam while in TE).

    Cause: Devices do not have everything that TE needs to see the external scanner.

    Solution/Workaround: New TelnetCE build was created (needs to be v7.3.216 – Newer). Also you will need to add a registry to the device for the TelnetCE client see the external scanner.

    Here is the registry that needs to be added to the devices needing the External Scanner.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wavelink\TelnetCE\Scanner] "IntermecDeviceName"="AllScanners"

    You will need to reboot the device after adding the registry.

    You will not be able to switch back and forth between the Integrated and External scanners. You need to choose one or the other.
