14. Why wont my barcode scanner show any scans in my own software? 

















Please confirm first if this occurs in NotePad, EXCEL or MS WORD or if it is occurring in JUST your 3rd party software application
Please provide a sample of your barcode to our Technical Support Dept if it is NOT scanning in 1 of the 3 programs I have mentioned. 

If it is NOT scanning in ONLY 3rd party software, you would need to contact that company to see what they recommend the configuration is 
since ALL 3rd party software requires some sort of configuration be done on the barcode scanner to be implemented with their software.
