CoExistance with UPOS

If you have other POS peripherals, it is recommended that you use the
industry standard OPOS or JavaPOS drivers to access all terminal
functions. This simplifies your application and improves it's portability
to other platforms. However, it is possible to configure a system that
allows you to use NWD to control the printer and to use UPOS drivers for
the other devices.
The process to do this is different for OPOS and JPOS.

OPOS/NWD CoExistance

For RS232 the solution is easy; don't configure a printer in OPOS (OposConfig).

For USB the solution is more complicated, since OPOS can detect (and
therefore control) all TGCS POS devices automatically.
Since NWD 2.6.4 if you install OPOS first and then NWD the NWD install
process will configure OPOS to ignore the USB 4610 printer, which allows
NWD and the print spooler to control the device instead.
If you need to do this step manually look at "Ignoring USB devices" in Ch5
of the UPOS Users Guide for details on the DisableUSB registry key.

JavaPOS/NWD CoExistance

Again, for RS232 the solution is easy; don't configure a printer in JPOS (POS Control Center)

For USB the solution is also complicated, but in a different way. JPOS
communicates with USB devices via endpoints, and uses a kernel mode driver
to accomplish this. So configuring JPOS to ignore the USB printer requires
you to uninstall the kernel mode driver, but only for the printer (and not
any other devices).

First, uninstall all javaxusb drivers from the system using the command
line "aipdifx -u c:\pos\drivers\javaxusb\javaxusb.inf"
Next, edit the c:\pos\drivers\javaxusb\javaxusb.inf file and comment out
the line for the 4610 printer (USB product ID 4535)
Finally, reinstall the newly modified .inf file, using the command
"aipdifx -i c:\pos\drivers\javaxusb\javaxusb.inf"

Since this process is more typically used for supporting OEM devices
information on aipdifx is in Ch17 of the UPOS Users Guide.

Prerequisites

Installation Instructions

Printer Driver Installation

Printer Driver Installation (User Interface Guided)

1. Run the InstallShield Installer Setup.exe
2. Follow on screen instructions
3. On "Add RSS Port" dialogue box, select Physical Port to which the printer is
attached and click on OK.

For RS232 Printer, ensure that the Port Settings are identical to that
of the printer.

bits per second = Baud Rate set on the printer using dip switch at the
bottom of the printer. For example 9600, 19200
Data bits = 8
Parity = None
Stop bits = 1
Flow Control = Hardware (if Printer dip switch set to DTR/DSR)
XonXoff (if Printer dip switch set to XonXoff)

4. Click "Finish" upon completion
5. Reboot system

Printer Driver Installation (Silent Automated)

For 'silent' install, either run the following command line in the Command Prompt
window or encase it in a batch file to be executed on the target system.

setup.exe /s /v"/qn PORT=<port> BAUDRATE=<baudrate> HANDSHAKE=<handshake>"

The valid values for <port> are: USB, COM1, COM2, etc...
The valid values for <baudrate> are: 9600, 19200, 115200
The valid values for <handshake> are: XONXOFF, DTRDSR

BAUDRATE and HANDSHAKE are required if the PORT is a COM port.
If no PORT is selected during a silent install, the default will be USB.
The default values for BAUDRATE is 9600 and HANDSHAKE is XONXOFF.
