Why my scanner gun reads special character instead of the correct data?

I have a scanner gun Motorola MC9090 with DataWedge version 3.2.4.
I have a barcode with the data: 480100*G.
The gun reads: $*)!))+G

These special characters correspond to each number key: 4=$, 8=*, 0=), 1=!
When the barcode contains only the number portion, it work fine.

Is this problem due to a DataWedge configuration? or the gun configuration?

Thanks,
Jose.

I believe it is due to DataWedge configuration, in particular what's set for that specific barcode type

I noticed that this happens only when I am connected to a server using Remote Desktop Mobile.

When I scan to a local program in the scanner gun like Word Mobile, it scans fine.

hmm, perhaps Remote Desktop handles it as keyboard clicks with Shift or Fn button pressed?
what are the other characters on those buttons? do they correspond? I don't remember if DataWedge has any settings for delivering the barcode in lowercase or uppercase.

Yes. Remote Desktop is handling as keyboard clicks with SHIFT because the special characters correspond to the number keys.

Also after I scan, if I press any NUMBER key, what I get is the correspondent special character. So the keyboard is changed to SHIFT mode and stays in that mode.

Now, If I press the SHIFT key, the keyboard changes the mode from SHIFT mode to normal mode. Then when I press the NUMBER key I get the number instead of the special character.

Is this something that I can control from the DataWedge?

I found a solution:

In DataWedge go to:
advanced Configuración>Profiles>Profile0>Output>Keystroke>Inter Char Delay
and change the value to 2.
