Comments here seem to always be more about how difficult it is to install the software. I have no idea why I can't just download the software today, but I'd like to hear what people like or dislike about the actual software.

I have a $20 barcode reader that plugs into USB and essentially types in what it reads. Works well with a database application.

Am I missing something here? Why would you want a barcode reader on your home computer? I assume that by the time you got the item home to read the barcode, you'd already bought the item, so what good would it do to read it then? I use to have one on my phone, but finally deleted it due to lack of use and to save internal memory space.

Ron Dunn, I was just thinking the same thing! Why isn't it available for Android/iOS??

Ron Dunn,

With a phone QR codes can be useful because the camera's so easy to access & typing something like a long URL can be a hassle. With a PC or laptop, AFAIK the main use is with a hand-held barcode scanner for store checkout or things like IT hardware inventory control.

Ron Dunn, I've worked with barcodes since the 70s and am attracted to this because there really is no universal code reader for normal people. This might be a step in the right direction. What you'd like is an app that just reads a given code in front of smartphone and tells you what it can about the code.

Ron Dunn, Not sure. My interest is in reading barcodes on books and DVDs to build a library of my too large collection.

I have a couple of the old CueCat scanners (Wikipedia) which wedge into a keyboard cable. The decoding is simple.

I'd like to see some code that automates much of that and builds the databases for me, maybe using the Amazon API.

It works. My quick check, I had a link stored on my phone and wanted to get it to my PC.
Used an app to make a QR code of the link, displayed QR code on phone screen.
Used "Barcode Reader 10.5.5" to read, via a cheap (£2 from charity shop) 640x480 webcam, the QR code from the phone screen.
Copy-pasted the decoded text into the browser,

...and what did that get you? Was there any real benefit to doing all that?

JJ, Yes; it was a long/complex link that I [I]could have[/I] retyped, or emailed to myself. But it was a valid test scenario to use the barcode/QRcode, and one that could be useful on other occasions - eg. if the source or target device was owned by somebody else - it only sends the data, not any contact info.

Sadly installation doesn't start- no message- after copying files to folder and running setup.exe

Get the popup with registration, redirection to web page- that's all.

I clicked setup and it says it's connecting to check availability then gives a failed to connect connection error.
