Using the OFIS-Y Scanner with TCMS V2

Monday, September 24, 2012 TimeTec 0 Comments

The OFIS-Y Scanner works with the TCMS v2 by using a file name Biokey.ocx. The version of Biokey.ocx is different for both OFIS-X and OFIS-Y scanners. In the current TCMS V2, you will find that the OFIS-Y scanner does not work with the software, as the Biokey.ocx file in the software does not support it. 

To use the OFIS-Y with the TCMS V2, you will need to update the Biokey.ocx file in the TCMS V2. To do so, follow the steps below:
  1. Make sure you are using the latest version of TCMS V2.2.022. Update your software if you are running an older version of TCMS V2.
  2. Click  to download the patch file of the TCMS V2 (you may also manually get the file in the Tips website > Download > Software)
  3. Unzip the file. You will see a file labelled ft.exe.
  4. Copy and paste this file into the TCMS V2 folder to replace the existing ft.exe file (You must exit the TCMS V2 program before proceeding with this step)
  5. Plug in the OFIS-Y scanner to the PC/laptop
  6. Run the TCMS V2 > Employee Management > Press ENROLL button. You will see a pop-up window requesting you to fill in the employee information.

Please note that you no longer be able to use TCMS V2 with the OFIS-X scanner after you perform the above steps. If you would like to switch to the OFIS-X scanner, you will need to uninstall and reinstall your software with the versions TCMS V2.2.022.
