    MC2180 EB license

    Krzysztof Smialkowski

      Hi,

       

      We are testing EB with different mobile scanners. For MC9XXX EB shows unregistered product screen, while on MC2180 it does not. Is the latter pre-licensed and needs no additional license purchased?

       

      Thanks

      Krzysztof

          Dear Krzysztof,

           

          No. MC9XXX is not pre-licensed and one must purchase the valid device license.

           

          Thanks & Regards,

              Hi Abhineet,

               

               

              Thank you for reply. My question was if MC2180 is pre-licensed, as this is the device we want to use with EB.

               

              Thanks

              Krzysztof

                  Dear Krzysztof,

                   

                  No. MC2180 device is not supported by Enterprise Browser application.

                  Please refer to Enterprise Browser Release Note.

                   

                  Thanks & Regards,

                      Indeed, MC2180 is not on the supported devices list, but EB can be installed and works quite well.

                       

                      Can you tell me:

                      1. Can we install and use EB on MC2180 without official support?

                      2. Will Zebra provide license for unsupported device?

                       

                      Thanks

                      Krzysztof

                          Dear Krzysztof,

                           

                          No. Due to technical reasons, we have not supported EB on legacy devices. One among them is MC2180. And so license cannot be provided for MC2180 device.

                           

                          However, I will follow up with PdM and will get back to you on the same.

                           

                          Can you also provide us the below details:

                          1. What is the browser which was being used earlier on MC2180 device?

                          2. What sort of enterprise capabilities will you be using on MC2180 device?

                          3. What sort of web application you want to run on MC2180 device?

                          4. We have two variants of Enterprise Browser application for WM/CE devices as mentioned below:

                          • Enterprise Browser with Webkit Engine (Supports HTML5. Requires more RAM space.)
                          • Enterprise Browser with IE Engine (Doesn't Support HTML5. Requires less RAM space compare to above.)

                           

                          If I am right, MC2180 is preloaded with RhoElements. You can try to use that application instead for your use case?

                           

                          Thanks & Regards,

                              Dear Abhineet,

                               

                              1. MC2180 has IE Simple installed (Windows CE 6.0).
                              2. We mostly want to use HTML5, asynchronous calls, fullscreen mode and barcode scanning without DataWedge and input fields taking up space. But EB gives a lot more modules we might incorporate in future (ie. offline DB).
                              3. We have created a simple HTML/PHP website for barcode verification against database. It works in IE Simple with POST forms, but we can make it a lot better, faster and user friendly with HTML5, jQuery and AJAX.
                              4. With all above mentioned, we obviously want to use the Webkit Engine.

                               

                              I had a short attempt at RhoElements, but with available skillset (web apps), additional software required (Visual Studio 2008) and more complex build I choose EB, if possible.

                               

                              Thank you and looking forward for PdM feedback.

                               

                              Regards
