I have a POS system that I am trying to code (in VBA - MS Access 2010), which needs to open the APG Cash Drawer (VB320-BL1915).
I have gone to starmicronics (http://www.starmicronics.com/Supports/Download.aspx
) and find the driver for windows 7, 64 bit, but of course it says right below the link: futurePRNT Configuration Utility Not Supported
So, I have the driver installed, and it prints fine. Now I am trying to get the driver to open the APG cash drawer. I have tried the WEPOS driver installation as well and the installation crashes ("register has stopped working").
I am just trying to figure out what driver will install (activex, or otherwise) so that I can register it in Access and use it.
This is NOT a serial, parallel, or USB cash drawer. It has what appears to be an ethernet connection (but is not), so I believe it is a 12V/24V connection.
If it were a USB connection, it would be simple. register the OCX, Add the OCX in Access, and reference the functions available to the object.
However, this is NOT that simple. The cable is tied to the Star printer, so I need the combination of drivers that will work to open the drawer.
Once again, this is 64 bit Windows 7 and Access 2010 with the APG cash drawer and Star printer.
