Have a VB app for Symbol MC1000 barcode scanner that has worked for about a year. Recently, scanner brought to IT dept since app no longer runs. Error is "Cannot find app_name (or one of its components)....

I had a similar problem on an MC75.

I had a back up of the registry, so I restored the backed up registry and it all started to work again.

Hope this helps!

Diference between Cold boot and warm boot

A warm boot restarts the mobile computer by closing all running programs. All data that is not saved is lost.

A cold boot also restarts the mobile computer, but erases all stored records and entries from RAM. In addition it returns formats,
preferences, and other settings to the factory default settings.

MC1000 original setting


As far as I can tell, this is an annoying feature of the scanners. When they do a cold boot, they return to factory settings and wipe any software you have installed. They seem not to wipe things which are reg settings, but anything else is fair game. I think the only solution is to avoid a reset (which means keeping the beastly things charged).

Auto Enter is False

Do you mean so that it will automatically input 'enter' after each scan

If so, this can be solved by ediitng the registry. You can do so as follows:

Download the enter file (this is a sendspace link, so it will not be up for very long).

Copy the file to the "Application" folder on the MC1000 and then do a cold boot and test.

I'm afraid I don't really understand how the reg has been editied in this file, otherwise I would post more detailed instructions rather than asking you to trust a file from an unknown person. But this fix was given to me by someone ore knowledgeable than me, and it has okay on my scanner!

Good luck!
