Unsupported Windows version when running on server
The Barcode Reader freeware that you can download from https://bytescout.com/download/download_freeware.html can't be used on a Windows Server environment. You can only use the app on Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10; 32/64-bit operating system.
However, we have a Barcode Reader SDK that works on Windows 7/8/10/11+ and Windows Server environments. You can download the trial here https://bytescout.com/download/web-installer
