Barcode scanner only works properly on hyperterminal
Posted on 2011-02-28
My friend have symbol scanner that is being used to scan barcodes. Unfortunately it works properly on Hyper-terminal program (Classic windows xp). But on the program that i have implemented, The barcode reads some of the numbers and others are characters and does not recognize those numbers.
I also used some other appilcations that uses SerialComport to read data, and it also outputs the same bad data characters.
Below is the sample output
Good result: 789001 << from hyperterminal (windows xp)
Bad result: 7?9??1 << from my program and other latest SerialCom reader software.
What could be the problem? thanks guys God Bless
