HP AP5000 - Way to convert the MSR to keyboard emulation?

Hi, I'm currently using a HP AP5000 and trying to find a utility that would allow me to program the swiper to run in Keyboard Emulation mode due to some track 2 data issues I'm having.

I found in one of the device manuals that this is only possible if you are using WinXP. Otherwise you need a third party utility to read com ports and simulate a keyboard.

If you have WinXP, go to Control Panel -> Accessibility Options -> General and make sure "Use Serial Keys" is checked.

This worked for me. Regards, Luka.
