Question / Problem:
Is it possible to disable extended 3 of 9 bar code support in Kofax VRS Elite?
Answer / Solution:
Yes, an INI file can be created to disable the Extended 3 of 9 support:
- Navigate to
- Create a new text file called KBarMode.ini if it does not already exist.
- Open KBarMode.ini in a text editor such as Notepad
- Add the following lines:
; KBarMode.ini ; ; Purpose: Deactivate Extended Code 39 support. ; [Barcode] IniActive=1 C39_FullAscii=0
- Save the changes to KBarMode.ini
- Relaunch the VRS Test Application to run a test batch of bar codes.
NOTE: There will be no other indication that it has been deactivated other than the actual character set being returned, rather than the characters such as "%I" being translated to ">" according to the Extended 3 of 9 specifications.
