OS X El Capitan and USB scanners
Posted by Sicaro Burnett on 02 December 2015 10:08 AM

Users of Apple’s OS X El Capitan operating system have reported issues with devices that communicate with their computer via USB or Bluetooth. This updated has affected a variety of hardware brands and some Wasp Barcode Technologies scanners are affected as well.

The USB communication in El Capitan is entirely different than previous versions of the OS X operating system. Currently there is not an immediate work- around or solution available, but our Hardware Developers are aware of the issue and we are actively researching and working towards a resolution.

We appreciate your patience.

Labeler v7: Label printing problems on Windows 10 or Windows 8.1
Posted by Scott Kircher on 04 August 2015 06:00 PM
These problems occur using Labeler v7, and when printing labels from InventoryControl v7 and MobileAsset v7 (which install and use Labeler v7).
 

Symptoms

  • OS: Windows 10 or Windows 8.1
  • Printing from Labeler to a WPL305, the label is fed, but is blank, or the printed image is less than half the expected size. A printed image might be unexpectedly rotated 90 degrees.
  • Printing from Labeler to a WPL612 or WPL610, the above problem may occur, or there may be no response from Windows or the printer when the print job is sent; no print job appears in the print queue.
  • Printing from Labeler to other types of printers, such as laser printers, PDF, and Microsoft XPS Document Writer, appears to unaffected. Printing from other applications to the label printer appears to be unaffected.

Cause

There is an incompatibility among Labeler, label printers, and Microsoft .NET v4.6 on Windows 10 and Windows 8.1. (When using Windows 7, label printing from Labeler appears to be unaffected by .NET v4.6.)
 

Discussion

Windows 10 comes with .NET v4.6 built in (and is not downgradeable).
 
Windows 8.1 comes with .NET v4.5.1 built in. The problem occurs when .NET v4.6 is installed.
 

Workaround

Windows 10: There is currently no known workaround.
 
Windows 8.1: Use the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool from Microsoft to return to .NET v4.5.1, then update to v4.5.2 (since there are problems with v4.5.1). If possible, disable the automatic update to .NET v4.6 in Windows Update. The PC will most likely need to be rebooted one or more times during this process.

Updates

When Wasp releases a fix for Labeler, or Microsoft releases a .NET update that does not cause this problem, this article will be updated.

WaspTime and Daylight Savings Time
Posted by Sicaro Burnett on 03 November 2014 10:41 AM

 

WaspTime allows you to apply Daylight Savings Time to all timecards in your system.

If Time Sync Setup is set to automatically synchronize the time clock, and synchronization was performed over the weekend, there is no need to apply daylight savings time for employees that were clocked in at the time the clock was synced.
