Configuration Manager - Printers - Ports - OPOS

To use an OPOS device, select OPOS from the Port list and select the desired device from the list of available OPOS devices. If the device is not on the list, the OPOS Driver supplied by the hardware manufacturer has not been installed.

- OPOS is a system (developed by Microsoft) for communicating with POS devices.

- An OPOS device uses an OPOS driver (or Service Object). The driver supplied by the OPOS device's manufacturer needs to be installed.

Note: OPOS is being deprecated (eventually no longer supported) by Microsoft and most hardware vendors. As such, it will no longer be available in a future release of Keystroke.

Note: The OPOS Port is only supported by Forms (Sales, Purchasing, etc.) and not by Reports. A driver still needs to be selected in Keystroke. Either the WINDOWS driver or the one of the built-in Keystroke drivers for the desired printer needs to be selected. If a built-in driver is used, OPOS will pass any control codes on through to the printer.

Note: For Cash Drawers, Open Codes are not required. By selecting the OPOS port, the OPOS driver will know to open the cash drawer.
