Changing a file attribute on Symbol 6846

I need to edit a read-only batch file on the flash rom on the 6846. I can edit other files, but not this batch file. I can edit it in the RamDrive, but lose my changes any time we have to do a cold-boot. Of course there is no 'attrib' command, but is there some other way to accomplish this?

You will need to extract the files from the terminal to be able to edit them normally and then rebuild the hex file to reload on to it.

There are two commands that you may want to try on the terminal but i doubt you will be able to modify the file.

flshctl /w will enable you to write on the flash.
flshctl /ro will disable the write option.

Guyz please help me

When the image above is blown up large enough to read, it's out of focus. But whatever the file or program, if you can't edit the file then save it, you might try removing the Read-Only attribute from the file in its Properties. Locate the file, right-click, click Properties, and deselect the Read-Only button. Save the file like that, then try editing it.

Remove read only files

After copying a batch of files to your Windows PC from a CD or DVD, you may discover that all the copied files carry the read-only flag. The most obvious way to remove the read-only flag from a file is to right-click on its icon, choose "Properties", and uncheck the "Read-only" box. But what if you have hundreds, or even thousands of files marked read-only?
You can batch-remove the read-only flag from multiple files using the attrib command from a command prompt. The Windows Command Line site has a tutorial on commands everyone can use, which includes an explanation of performing this task with the attrib command. The section on the attrib command is titled "Changing file attributes with 'attrib'", and is located about three quarters of the way down the page.
In short, you can remove the read-only flag from a group of files by navigating to their folder from a command prompt and typing attrib -r ./*.* /s. I did this to a folder full of image files with attrib -r ./*.jpg /s.
Bring up a command prompt in Windows XP by clicking Start → Run, typing "cmd", and pressing "OK". In Windows Vista, click Start, type "cmd", and press the Enter key.

Have files on a CD that are read only. How can I remove read only so I can make changes to the files. Thank you.

You can use the xcopy command to remove the read-only attribute while you are copying files from a CD-ROM. Xcopy.exe resets the read-only attributes unless you specify otherwise by using the /k switch (this switch copies attributes). To use this method:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
  3. Type xcopy drive letter:\*.* destination /e /h, where drive letter is the CD-ROM drive letter and destination is the path to the destination for the files, and then press ENTER. For more information about command-line switches for Xcopy.exe, type xcopy /? at a command prompt.

Symbol PDT 6846 - Scanner won't read 13 digit barcodes (program returns "not on file"). How do we update the scanner application?

This sounds like a programming issue. What application are you using? If you are using a terminal emulation software then you will need to check your host for the issue. If you are using a batch program where the files are stored on the scanner then you will need to check your "validation" files to make sure the code you are scanning is in the scanner.

.bat file

Hi,

All MS-DOS batch (.bat) files can be edited using Notepad. You may need to un-check Read Only in the file property if you wish to save.

Good luck and kindest regards.

MS-Dos running a file..

Right click on the file and select edit. This should load it in a text editor.
Now, simply read what it does.

You don't say what the batch file is for, so it's hard to say what you should look for in the file.
