CoreScanner.exe crashing when used with LS2208

The CoreScanner.exe service is crashing when a Symbol LS2208 scanner is plugged in and a program tries to connect to the CoreScanner service.

USB Device Type is set to IBM Hand-Held USB on the LS2208
CoreScanner.exe is version

The same program works fine with an LS4278.
This has occurred on two different Windows 7 64 bit computers.


The relevant entries from the Event Log are below.


I believe that there was a significant change in firmware / drivers for LS2208 scanners manufactured after 02 Jan 2015. Is there a incompatibility between the drivers for scanners manufactured before the end of 2014 and CoreScanner.exe?

The scanner was manufactured before this change. Should we be using a different version of CoreScanner.exe?
Or how should we resolve this problem?

I'm having the same issue

I'm having the same issue with 32-bit windows 7.  I can get it to work however if after rebooting it beeps once, then while windows loads it beeps again, immediately I scanning the IBM Hand-Held USB barcode configuration, then it will work.  If I don't do it in time the core crashes.

update.. so long as I scan the IBM Hand-held USB config barcode before using the SDK apps it will work.

The latest ZebraScan 1232

The latest ZebraScan 1232 update downloaded a new driver that seems to have fixed this issue thankfully.
