Why wont my reader output to notepad?

1 min. readlast update: 10.18.2023

 If a readder is not outputting your data to notepad or other text fields, the most common cause would be that it is not a keystroking reader.  Only readers where the model number ends in 1AKU or 1BKU will output to a text field.  If your model does end in either of those, and is not outputting, it is possible the reader you have does not support keyboard emulation.  

If your Model ends in 82AKU or 82BKU, it is a NON KEYSTROKING reader and is inteded to be used with our SDK.

If you model does end in 1AKU or 1BKU you will want to use our configuration utility, pcProx Config, and do the following,

  1. Go to the SDK tab 2.  Make sure that the "Disable Keystrokes for SDK" box is not checked. If it is checked, uncheck it and click WRITE. 

If this does not work, please chat, call or email our technical support team.
