Key Points to Note

  • The Welcome Screen can only be set up on a Windows PC and WILL NOT operate on Apple/Mac Device.

  • We advise that the PC being used for the Welcome Screen is hard wired to the Internet router rather than WiFi to ensure it has a robust connection at all times.

  • Before getting started with the set up ensure that the USB connected bar code reader is connected to the Windows PC

Before we get started please find the link below and download both versions of Microsoft Visual C++ one at a time, this will ensure the welcome screen loads right away once installed

  2. Make sure you are connected to the internet to operate

  3. If the reader does not seem to operate check that it is plugged in and the blue light is on at the top of the reader. When you then offer a bar code up to it the white light will come on.

  4. Make sure the Welcome Screen application is turned on each day to ensure it is working as you do need to be logged into the main ClubRight software for this to work.

  5. You might need a powered USB hub as scanner we're now providing requires a powered USB, most recent Windows PC's will be fine.

    • Older computers do not provide enough power - which is why the scanners don't work (even though they appear to turn on, they aren't on enough to be able to run effectively)

    • Long extension cables will probably lower the voltage enough so the scanner isn't getting enough power so this should also be considered.

  6. Basically - check what power options are available to the scanner before writing the scanner off as dead. A powered USB hub will most likely solve the problem if you find this to the case with your PC
