Re: Random Characters When Reviewing Transactions

I thought I saw something like this before - always the short No Sale transactions.
The only thing I have seen in sale-type transactions is misaligned titles and customer information.
Anyway, I didn't think it would hurt to throw a couple of screenshots at the issue.

Re: DSC - dhpos self checkout

You are the only person out of many who have reported this as a problem, it could be caused because it is not allowed to save anything on to your computer or read anything. Try running it in administrator mode, could you give me the specs on your computer? Is it running behind any malware programs ...

Re: DSC - dhpos self checkout

Well, I was honestly going to test it, except: I couldn't get it to read any POS files It doesn't save it's configuration, I have to redo it every time I open the program It doesn't seem to like POS files over 1 character (e.g. I had a file called SC1.POS, and the error kept referring to 1.POS, SC.P...

It made none of them recognizable, DHPOS opened up with a black & white screen, and went to an empty minimally-configured register file.
I didn't experiment any further, I just restored from backup.

Re: DSC - dhpos self checkout

I just attempted to try out this program. I appreciate the warning about not putting the Self Checkout files in your DHPOS folder. However, I would have appreciated it more in the PDF documentation, and not the program's startup screen, after it already did funny things to my test POS files, and for...

Receipt Notes on 80 Character Receipts

I noticed that when using receipt notes with an 80 character receipt printout, the notes tend to fall in the center of the line. It looks completely unaligned with the item descriptions, and the notes are not even the full width. See Picture Below - Let me know if there is a work-around or fix. Than...

They may or may not have seen this, but it is now down to £50 (still $78.12 in the US).

Re: DHPOS on Windows Server 2008

The only reason I was using Server 2008 was because I was trying DHPOS on Amazon EC2. I wanted to see if I could create a network setup of DHPOS on one EC2 instance, and deliver it as a virtual application. Just experimenting. I've done similar experiments using Telnet and SSH to deploy across a ne...
