    Hi, i'm trying to create a timein/timeout desktop application and i'm trying to figure out how i can detect a user's ID from the card...as i do my research, i stumbled upon this active x control which will connect to the rfid reader..


    http://www.scardsoft.com/main.php3?Theme=SCardX


    My question is, is there another way to achieve/develop the application aside from using an activex? or is there a rfid reader/write that acts like a standard input device, just like a barcode scanner?

    btw, i already have a reader, OMNIKey HID 9312..


    Thanks in advance...

    Thanks @Wonderman ..i was able to get samples using com port, but no usb sample...do you have any idea if there's a device that acts like a barcode without using any special control or sdk?
