DataMan 5.6.3 SR2 Software Release


DataMan 5.6.3 software adds new capabilities for all current DataMan fixed-mount barcode readers  (DM50, DM60, DM150, DM260, DM300, DM360 and DM503 series).


5.6.3 SR2 fixes the following issues:

  • Fixed an issue where under certain boundary conditions, network discovery would not locate some devices.
  • Fixed DataMan 100V Code Quality results display.
  • Fixed an issue with HID devices not appearing correctly in the Maintenance menu.


5.6.3 SR1 (amongst others) fixes an incompatibility issue with Internet Explorer 10 on some PCs, and a bug when loading configuration files across different platforms. It can also coexist with other 5.6 based installations (e.g. 5.6.0 SR1 for DataMan 8600 handhelds running 5.4.3 CR3 firmware).
