From April 13, 2021 onwards the support for Windows Embedded Compact 7 is discontinued by Microsoft. Exact follows the Microsoft support lifecycle policy and since we cannot guarantee the working for updates of the operating system after this date, we no longer support this operating system. It is advised to migrate to Android scanners to secure proper working of the scanners.Windows Embedded Compact 7 is the last supported framework for CE scanners by Microsoft so that after this date we cannot guarantee the working of the software when there are changes in the operating system.
Requirements for wireless scanning:
It is possible to use E-WMS
wireless in an external warehouse, or in a 'hosted' scenario, where the
server (including the web
server) are located at a hosting provider. In that case, you
do need a stable internet connection to access the E-WMS web server, with
sufficient bandwidth for the number of scanners in use, combined with any
other network traffic. See document E-WMS ASP and remote warehouse
for more information.
The E-WMS services can be used to
automatically send orders picking, or to automatically read back and process
picked orders and other warehouse transactions.
The ICL services can be used to automatically
create new orders in the central warehouse database, and to automatically
export changes and fulfilments from the central warehouse database.
The E-WMS RF services or the ICL services
require a dedicated server or PC. Specific requirements are listed in document
WMS and ICL (Intercompany Logistics) Services requirements.
