  • Question

  • Do manufacturers still sell products with POS Ready 2009? I was informed that my POS cash desks were going to come preinstalled PosReady7 MSR. But other that it came with POS Ready 2009 is that normal?

  • POS Ready 2009 has gone EOL - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/search?alpha=Windows%20Embedded%20POSReady%202009

    OEMs are not permitted to ship POS Ready 2009 anymore. You may sill find some devices still in the supply chain, but those will be the last available.

    POSReady 7 will be available for a another year before it goes EOL - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/search?alpha=Windows%20Embedded%20POSReady%207

    Eventually, Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC will be the version used for POS systems.

  • Thank you this is the one I had bought a year ago. Thank you very much.

    I have just checked the system and seen its not the one I have ordered. I think my supplier has checked the wrong box when ordering.

    I was expecting 128gb of disk and I got 64gb. I was expecting PosReady7 MSR and I got POS Ready 2009. My supplier tells me there is no difference between both operation systems? Can that be correct?

  • No, they are not correct. There is a big difference between the two. POSReady 2009 is based on Windows XP Embedded and POSReady7 is based on Windows 7.

    Your supplier doesn't know what they are talking about.

  • Thank you very much. So you would suggest me to ask for the POSReady7 since it is the version I have paid for?

  • I would ask for POSReady7. I wouldn't use POSready 2009 at this point.
