Language / Err=99 - NEW() not supported
« on: September 14, 2021, 01:09:40 PM »
Somehow, both of our systems are reporting NEW( not supported.
How did this occur? How to correct it?

Thin Client/WindX / WindX Function Keys
« on: September 02, 2021, 05:41:01 PM »
We are using version 1250 and WindX.
Our <F1> key fails to return a 1. Instead, we receive a value of 0.
Running a simple test input program, we get a 0 if using WindX.
However, any other emulator used and the <F1> key returns a 1.
This all began on Tuesday at 2 PM EST.
The "START_UP" program makes no changes to the <F1> key.
Please offer a solution.

Thin Client/WindX / Still Digital Camera Integration
« on: April 13, 2021, 03:09:25 AM »
We have a client interested in capturing their customer's photo when they are operating the register from a Windx workstation.
Perhaps a drivers license scanner instead/as well.
What sort of hardware would be recommended?
What type of camera hardware have others found to be most useful (Serial/USB/Network)

Where is the documentation on these features?
Try as I might, I cannot find the docs.

Registration and Setup / Re: User Seats
« on: July 28, 2020, 07:12:04 PM »
Perhaps I should have been more specific.
We use 'telnet' to login and we use Windx as well as other terminal emulators.
For each login, a license is consumed.
We were under the impression that one license was consumed per username+IP address, but this is not what we are witnessing.  If I login three times, I consume three licenses.

Registration and Setup / User Seats
« on: July 28, 2020, 04:50:54 PM »
We thought each user/IP address would consume one license.  However, this does not seem to be the case.
Multiple logins from the same IP using the same login actually consume one additional license.
Please describe when a license is consumed.
Is there any way to use one license for multiple logins by the same operator from the same IP address?

Language / Windows Numbers
« on: November 14, 2019, 11:46:19 AM »
I am working on a program with multiple windows.  I am using DEC($00$+MID(FIN(0),10,1)) to report the window number, then 'GOTO'(WINDOW_NUMBER) to move between the windows.
This works very well with any emulator EXCEPT Windx.  In Windx, the system occasionally loses track of which window it is in and also fails to 'DROP'(WINDOW_NUMBER), However, 'POP' still works.
I think the client/server communication is somehow losing track. Is there perhaps a SYSTEM PARAMETER we can adjust to correct this?

Language / ERR=61 trying to create a file in Windows C:/TMP/
« on: November 14, 2019, 11:38:37 AM »
I just installed a new PC with Windx.  All of the workstations make heavy use of sending files to the PC Workstation and we use C:/tmp/ for this purpose to receive the files. 

This new workstation generate an ERR=61 whenever we try to write to the PC:


This fails.  We have removed all virus programs, turned off the firewall, and checked and rechecked the permissions on the disk and folder.  What are we missing?

Programming / Re: '*X' mnemonic
« on: August 22, 2019, 06:23:01 PM »
The customer has ordered:
1. Create the output PDF on the PC using a specific name.
2. Display the PDF on the PC PDF Viewer.

What I did was create the PDF on the Linux system and copy it to the PC.
Next, I have tried:
but this does not work, complaining that the file is open.
Is there some other way to do this?

Programming / '*X' mnemonic
« on: August 21, 2019, 04:10:33 PM »
I have a program on the Linux server which creates C:/TEMP/FILENAME.PDF on the workstation.
This works well

Next, I wish to display this file.
However, I get an err=49.  What is wrong with this syntax?

Thin Client/WindX / Windows 10 - Automatically run Providex+ on boot
« on: August 10, 2019, 02:34:02 PM »
I am not very good with Windows Admin.  One of my customers has 6 small profile Windows 10 computer that they want to boot when the power is applied directly into Providex+ without any operator interaction.
How is this done?

Programming / Duplicate Output Paper and PDF
« on: August 06, 2019, 03:13:47 PM »
Is there a way to modify a printer such that it prints to PDF and to a hardcopy at the same time?
This is a *nix CUPS system with cups-pdf installed.

Thin Client/WindX / Disable the [X] Exit
« on: July 30, 2019, 06:11:55 PM »
How is it possible to disable the [X] exit and not display the [X] exit option as well in Windx?

Nomads / Formatted Report Style LIST_BOX in *NOMADS
« on: July 04, 2019, 01:00:50 AM »
Where in NOMADS do I place the column titles and sizes for a report style LIST_BOX?
Since the *nix version is *so* different from the Windows version of NOMADS, please identify the location in the Linux version if you could.
