Question about Symbol LS1902T Handheld
I had a USB Logitech keyboard and used a ps2 to usb connector. The USB (keyboard) went into the connector and the other part of the Y cable went into the back of the computer. This worked fine. I have now replaced the keyboard for another Logitech but the keyboard will not work unless I plug the USB directly into a USB port and the scanner makes a funny noise when I scan it.
It is not likely VISTA will run your scanner software as it is very old. However you could check program compatibility mode and set it to run as Win 95/8 Check compatibility in Start/Programs/Accessories or go to my Computer Windows Help[ and type compatibility in the search field But I don't think you will get far.

When I connected this scanner (purchased at a great discount through eBay) to my computer using the keyboard wedge (with a ps2 connection - the round connector) I received the error message that my computer could not recognize this external hardware. I went to barcodediscount.com and ordered the usb connector for this scanner as usb connections are usually recognized. The part # for this connector is STI85-0200R. It cost 72.55 with shipping, but I received the scanner at such a wonderful price that I thought I'd chance it and try it with a usb rather than a keyboard wedge connector.
The computer immediately recognized the usb connection, and the usb connector comes with a manual with codes to enable proper scanning, but still no luck getting the data into the computer. So I called Symbol's technical support department. The technician told me to remove the rubber "boot" at the bottom of the hand held scanner (not the scanner base) by pulling on the front of it (where the 2 little round circles are). It's tough to remove, but keep at it. Then gently remove the battery and unplug it, then plug it back in and reattach the base. He said this would reset the battery. Voila!!!! Sucess!!!!
If your scanner's keyboard wedge connection is recognized (a little popup window will say that it is a Symbol barcode scanner and that it is installed and ready to use), try taking the battery out and putting it back in to reset it. Hopefully this will also work for you. Symbol's technical support # is (800) 722-6234.

A solution to your problem would be to use usb cable to connect the scanner to the POS system. I have had a similar issue in the past where the IBM pos system did not like the cable that the customer had and we've got around this by using usb instead.
I hope this helps you although it may not be the kind of answer that you were looking for,

You can purchase a USB cable for the scanner. The cable comes out of the handle of the scanner. The part number of the USB cable is CBA-U01-S07ZAR.
