I'm assuming you are using the PSCharge.dll to integrate regular credit card sales. The dll is fine for credit transactions and such, as long as there is no hardware involved. Since I'm way late on answering your question, you now have to options. The old option would be to integrate the device.ocx into your POS for comunnication with the hardware needed (i.e. pinpad for debit and ebt). If you have an updated Dev Kit, there is now a new integration library (SIM.dll) which is a .NET assembly which includes support for the traditional PSCharge classes as well as the hardware classes previously only included in device.ocx and the individual hardware ocx's. The SIM.dll can be used in win32 code, although the VFI documentation does not go into detail on this. I've done the integration with this library in Delphi, using a tlb for the SIM assembly and the MSCorlib assembly. These methods are little more involved than a simple post, but it can be done. So, to answer your question, device.ocx, or the new SIM.dll library will allow you to integrate to hardware devices.

Hi 328,

If you are still using pcCharge, nothing in RPE/CRE changes. Your new merchant info goes into the pcCharge setup software. Let me know if this helps.
Feel free to email me with more details if need be.

Runtime error 94 in pccharge

I just had this same problem, I managed to fix it by starting PCCharge and typed in "SYSTEM" for the user and then clicked the password box and selected "forgot my password" it should prompt you for a security question, and then it let me log on without issue. After 7 years of dealing with PCCharge I can honestly say it is **** and if you have any choice switch to another payment software. If not, best of luck and I hope your experience is better than mine. CHEERS!

hi teriyakijet,
What have you gone and done now. By saying NO, you can run software as usual except, you can't process a credit card transaction thru the system. The only fix for this is the correct password or PCAmerica tech support. Keep in mind that this password is not the main password for your system. This password was entered at time of setup. It only looks for this password if you try connecting another POS to it. They have to match. Reinstalling will not help because it resides in the database and is encrypted. A fresh database would fix problem, but you would loose everything. Inventory, menu, company info, invoices, etc.

Error 3343 when I start PC Charge, how can I fix this?

error 3343 is a database error. Unfortunately, PCCharge is still in the stone-ages of computer technology and they think VB6.0 and MS Access 2.0 are stable and secure ... At any rate. 3343 is simply an unrecognizable database, in this case due to corruption. There is a program in the PCCharge directory called VisData. This will allow you to run a repair and compact the database. To use:
First make a backup of your PCCW.MDB database in your PCCharge directory (C:\Program Files\Active-Charge (PaymentServer); C:\Program
Files\PCCW (PRO)).

Execute VISDATA.exe.
File -> Repair MDB.
Select the PCCW.MDB database from your PCCharge directory.
Select 'No" to open Repaired Database.
File -> Compact MDB ... 2.0 MDB
Again, Select the PCCW.MDB
It will then prompt for what you want the database to be named. Simply select PCCW.MDB again, select 'YES' to replace existing database.
Select 'NO' to encrypt database.
Select 'NO' to Open Compacted database
Exit Visdata and start PCCharge.

It would also be a good idea to go ahead and update to the latest available Scripting Runtime library. This can be found by going to and searching for the phrase 'windows script'. (To my knowledge, 5.7 is the latest version).

Phantom Transactions on PCCharge

One it is most likely you are getting communications errors while Pc Charge is dialing out which I am assuming you are using DIAL up.
You need to upgrade to Version 5.7.1 or above and then use dial or highspeed connection.

When the software dials out to the bank for approval while that process is going on your communication drops and then PC Charge will have no way of recording the Approval back. So in turn you are running it again where the approval for the first sal e was already done but the response was not captured. Your bank can put duplicate trans stops on the front end. Make sure you upgrade to the newest version.

Restauarnt pro express link with credit cards

if you're using PCC, you should try to process directly through the PCC program, if that works, most likely the only thing you have to do is go in to RPE, then setup screen and set the directory where PCC is (usually this is active charge directory for payment server, or pcw for pccharge pro, they both work but i believe its only OFFICIALLY supported with payment server)

they have some good info on their site:

I want to make a payment on my bill, don't know how to access that area on this website

PCCharge does not charge a monthly bill for use of it's software. Perhaps you should get in touch with your MSP. The only bill PCCharge would charge is either for the purchase of the software, or for the tech support contract (which is quickly becoming less and less worth the money). In both cases, you would need to contact their sales department directly.
