    Hi,

    My company uses Winterm S10’s, and we have a custom application that uses ELO touchscreens, a barcode scanner, and a “serial to USB keyboard” converter.

    Everything but the “Serial to USB keyboard” converter is okay.

    What we’ve found is that 5.1.028f, 5.3.0_09f, and 5.1.0_47f all do not recognize it. However, 5.1.010f works fine with the converter. (I was briefly able to get 5.1.0_47f to recognize the converter as a hub, but it did not recognize the HID device on it.)

    Wyse only shows 5.1.028 and 5.1.047 on their public download support page. http://www.wyse.com/serviceandsupport/support/dlOraFW.asp?which=73&model=S10(Wyse%20Thin%20OS)

    Is there any way for us to copy 5.1.010f from the working client, and downgrade our other S10’s to match it? Or is there a way to get 5.1.010f from WYSE’s website?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Thank you. Much appreciated. If my IS dept balks at a web-link, is a support agreement with WYSE the way to go? (i.e. is WYSE the kind of company who’ll give out old versions on request.)

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Aw fudge,
    👿
    The newer S10’s won’t accept the firmware. Says “Firmware (5.1.0_10) is too old to ensure hardware compatibility.”

    I appreciate all the help.

    Let’s hope that parallel path solution of getting the Serial-to-USB developer to fix their firmware works… or we’ll be trying to find 8 vintage S10’s!
