Does ASPluris support Two Dimensional Barcodes?

It depends on what you are wanting to achieve.  Here are the factors

  1. Firstly you will need a units that has an imager rather than a laser.  As an example the DT-X200 has a 10E model which uses a laser engine and a 20E which uses an imager.  2D scanners using an imager can read standard barcodes [in any orientation] and can read most 2D codes.
  2. If the client is just using the 2D code as an identifier ie just like a standard barcode but in a 2D code, then ASPluris supports that out of the box but needs an imager to read the 2D code.
  3. If the client has other data in the 2D code other than just the identifier [a QR Code which is a form of 2D can have more than 5000 characters] such as serial number or batch number or both or anything else, then we will need to understand the requirements.  Once we know that, we will be able to match the functionality in ASPluris to the specific requirements.
  4. You can find more information on QR Code which is a form of 2D here


At the end of the day if the pickers have not completed the order, can the picking details be saved until the next day. At the moment they log out of ASPluris each night which I think is clearing out their pick quantities. If they stay logged into ASPluris but just logout as a user will the pick quantities remain until the following day when they finish picking the order?

While an order is being picked, the pick is stored in the physical scanner that is being used.  Provided that they use the same scanner, they can continue scanning the next day.


After Installation Error: Client found response content type of ‘text/htim; charset=utf-8’, but expected ‘tex

After installing ASPluris, the scanner may show an error message saying:

Client found response content type of ‘text/htim; charset=utf-8’, but expected ‘text/xml’.

When running the following URL https://localhost:5172/ in the browser on the PC where ASPluris is installed, the following error may be displayed:

HTTP Error 500.21 - Internal Server Error
Handler "StaticFile" has a bad module "StaticFileModule" in its module list

Go to the “Turn Windows features on off” in the programs and features section of the Windows Control Panel.

Untick the default document option and press OK.

Go back to the “Turn Windows features on off” in Programs and Features and tick the following items:

on Windows 10, or

on Windows 7.
Click the OK button, and once completed, open IIS and navigate to ASPluris V2.3, then click on the restart button.


How many days back does ASPluris look for uncompleted orders?

ASPluris does not restrict orders by time. Instead, the system downloads all orders that have not been completed. Uncompleted orders are those that have one or more lines that have not been picked.


How can I fully reset my barcode terminal?

You will not normally need to perform a full reset on your barcode terminal. You should contact ASP before doing so.

Resetting the terminal will definitely cause any un-submitted data to be lost, and it cannot be recovered. However, data already submitted to ASPluris will not be lost, and programs and settings that are stored in the Flash ROM should be unaffected.

Use the stylus to press the reset button on the back of the terminal. This starts the reset operation. Do not use a toothpick or pencil or other sharp object whose tip may break off the reset button.


When I edit the ASPluris configuration file with NotePad (or another text editor), my changes do not take effect, or I get an error message when I save my changes.

Because the ASPluris Service is a system program, the ASPluris configuration file cannot be changed unless your text editor is running in Administrator mode.

The easiest way to do this is to right-click on your editor’s icon and select Run As Administrator from the menu that pops up, then open the ASPluris configuration file and make your changes.

Unfortunately, some text editors do not detect this problem, and simply don’t save your changes instead of displaying an error message.


Why is ASPluris asking for key to be entered if I have already registered it?

If any hardware or network changes have been made on your PC/server, the program may detect this and create a different Hardware Finger Print, which will require a new (re-activation) key to be entered.


Is ASPluris Windows 10 compatible?

Yes. ASPluris is compatible with Windows Vista and later desktop operating systems, and Windows Server 2008 and later server operating systems.

ASPluris is not compatible with Windows XP or earlier, or Server 2003 or earlier.


What is a CAL? How many CALs do I require?

A CAL is a Client Access Licence. You need one CAL for every barcode terminal that you will use at the same time.

The ASPluris server has a “pool” of licences (ie CALs). Each time a terminal logs in, the server checks first to see if that terminal has already been granted a licence. If it has, the terminal is allowed to log in. If not, the server then checks to see if there are any “free” licences available. If so, that terminal is granted a licence, and the terminal is allowed to log in Otherwise, the terminal is refused.

So, if the server has five licences (CALs), and five terminals have logged in, a sixth terminal will be refused. However, it is possible to “release” an existing licence, and the sixth terminal could then log on. The “released” terminal would then be refused.


Does ASPluris need to be installed on the same server that Ostendo is running on?

The main reason for recommending that ASPluris be installed on the same server as the Ostendo database is performance – ASPluris will run faster and more efficiently on the same server.

If you install ASPluris on a different server, that server must have a TCP/IP connection to the server running the Ostendo database.
