I am using XenApp 7.12 and having issues with BarCode Scanners when they use the Desktop.  If we use publish apps no issues.  What seems to happen is the barcode scanner reads the barcode and outputs them as keyboard strokes then hits tab  Randomly the Tab will come before the last KeyStroke.  There is not driver for the scanner as it shows up as a USB Keyboard.  I was also able to replicate this using KeePass AutoType.    This was not an issue in XenApp 7.6


Any insight would be a great help.

Hey Rick,


How does it function on the VDA server? What version of Receiver are you using?

It works fine on the physical server itself when using RDP.  I have tested Receiver versions 4.3- 4.8.  The receiver version on the VDA's is 4.6


Thank you in advance.  I have also replicated this issue using keepass to eliminate a possible driver issue.  Also I am on the local LAN of the Citrix environment which is GB from me to the VDA and the VDA to the vDisk is on 10GB.  I have no issues with latency and it runs as if I was using my local machine.
