QAID # 4572 Published

Question / Problem:

When using the Enhanced Bar Code engine to read barcodes that contain a checksum value, the checksum value is not returned in the resulting bar code value.

Answer / Solution:

To include the checksum value in the results returned from the Enhanced Bar Code engine:

1.  Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Kofax\Vrs

2.  Create a new text file called KBarMode.ini if one does not already exist.

3.  Open KBarMode.ini in a text editor such as Notepad.

4.  Add the following lines if they do not already exist:

[BarCode]

Algorithm=1

IniActive=1

ReturnChecksum=1

5. Save the changes to KBarMode.ini

6.  Restart all applications and services that use VRS/ImageControls.
