Click on to upload your sku information to the scanner device as well as push the AmberPOS .apk file needed for installation.
If you attempt to upload the sku list to the scanner you may receive the following error message.
This message occurs when there is a conflict with the portable devices listed in Windows. To help correct this issue you can open the device manager and remove all other devices aside from the DL-Axist.
You should have better success when attempting to upload the file after uninstalling these listed devices. If you still have issues you can manually transfer the .apk file to the scanning device. Open the Pacific Amber software folder in the file explorer and you will find the file available.
