  • It is difficult to tell from your post which version of our Point of Service operating system you are running, but I assume that it is either Windows Embedded for Point of Service 1.0 or its successor Windows Embedded POSReady 2009.  Both of these platforms are based on Windows XP kernel and will report themselves as Windows XP rather than something specific to Windows Embedded.  This could simply be a case where your client is expecting to see something different than the operating system reports, however it could also be that they do not have the  same network protocols installed on both the server and POS device.  Please check the network configuration to ensure both systems are using the same network protocols.
