    G'day All
    Does anyone have / use the 5100BCS Bar code scanner?
    is it still compatible with Win10 & Toolkit?

    I was looking to buy one if they still work & save time.

    Thanks

    If you can't source a 5100BCS - the scanner is a "wedge" type. It just pretends to be a keyboard. It doesn't require any special drivers or software on the PC. If you open up Notepad and use the scanner, it will spew text into the window. It should be possible to use any scanner of that same type.
