Preparation for processing the data read by GT10

Convert the data received from the USB virtual COM port to keyboard input data for processing the data read by GT10.

  1.  1.Download the QR_kbif and install it on your PC.
  2.  2.Start the QR_kbif.
    When the Com Port Setting window appears, select the USB virtual COM port number to which the GT10 is connected.

    You can confirm the USB virtual COM port number on the Windows' Device Manager. 
  3.  3.Open some application, for example, the Windows' Memo and then read any bar code with the GT10. The read data is displayed on the application program's screen.

As an alternative, you can create application programs that receive serial communications data without the QR_kbif.
