Scale Setup

hi,
I's currently working with RMS (learning the program), and I have a little bit of trouble configuring a scale. I have a NCI Avery Berkel Scale Modem #
7820. It communicates ok with the software they provide, but the OPOS configurator from microsoft won't read it. I have the checked the Serial port settings and all works ok from outside of the application, but not from RMS. Any suggestions?

Ricardo,
Have you installed the OPOS driver for the scale?
Have you gone to Database->Register->Register List and assign a scale to the register?
Good luck, Matt

I just put a 60lb 6720 onto my test unit a few days ago, and the OPOS drivers that you get from the website come with two default named profiles. For my case it was listed as Magellan, I do not know if this profile worked, because I wanted to name the scale something else. I clicked New to make a new profile that seemed to capture the settings right away. The name of that profile, was the OPOS device name that I used in RMS. It worked like a charm. I was shocked and pleasantly surprised! Hopefully this works for you!
