I have a few questions regarding the MC2100. I need to program the scanner in MC2100 such that it lets me know if a particular bar code scanned is present in the list of barcodes that are in a move list (as part of inventory management) for a client and pass this info to an ERP.
I have gone through and poured over all the info available on the zebra sites. I don't have the device yet. I am still reading up on how to go about solving the issue for my client. I plan to program on my Windows 10 desktop using the Windows CE 6.0 SDK and EMDK for C (since I am familiar with C/C++) and MS Visual Studio 2008. My questions are as follows
1. Which SDK do I use? The SDK for Professional OS or the Core OS? Does this depend on the actual version running on the MC2100 device? (which I haven't yet purchased)
2. After having gone through the release notes for the above two SDKs, I see that one of the prerequisites as per the installation guide, is to have a Windows 2000/Xp/Vista as my desktop OS? I have a Windows 10 OS on my desktop. So will I be able to work on Windows CE 6.0 SDK (either pro or core) using my Windows 10 desktop environment?
3. If I can indeed sync the Windows 10 OS and the Windows CE 6.0 (on the MC2100), there is a Sync center already available in Windows 10. Can I use this or do I need to install another version of Microsoft ActiveSync (like 4.5 or higher)?
4. I also tried downloading the MC2100 Platform SDK and I see that it is restricted! Will I be able to do this only after I purchase a MC2100 device? Is there any other way I can download it?
