I've installed pos for net 1.12 and fix kb2755802 on Windows 8 x64.

Than i took sample application from POS for .NET folder and compiled it under VS2012 - all worked fine.

But after i've changed target framework to .NET 4.0 (or .NET 4.5), i've got the exception on next line:

posExplorer = new PosExplorer(this);

Exception message: "Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow."

Source: "Microsoft.PointOfService"

Stack trace:

at Microsoft.PointOfService.PhysicalDeviceInfo.GetDevicePath(Guid InterfaceGuid)
at Microsoft.PointOfService.PhysicalDeviceInfo.BuildDeviceList()
at Microsoft.PointOfService.Management.Explorer.Refresh()
at Microsoft.PointOfService.Management.Explorer..ctor()
at Microsoft.PointOfService.Management.Explorer..cctor()

Are you guys going to officially drop POS for .Net or are we waiting in vain for this now well outdated product to be fixed.

If it ain't going to be fixed then do us the courtesy of putting us ut of our misery and start looking elsewhere for a supported library.

Thank you.

Please review the following link to see if it helps with your issue, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/959944
POS for.Net is not supported on .Net 4.5 and/or Windows8 based operating systems at this time.
Q. Are you working on behalf of a company that has a license for a "Microsoft POS product" with Microsoft or an authorized OEM?

Please, look at attached file BarcodeScanner.zip. First 2 zips are incorrect.

Now i played with configuration and found that this behavior associated with AnyCPU configuration. In x86 mode it maybe works (i don't know at his moment).
