If you go to scan a drivers license and you hear the scanner beep, but the first and last name does not appear in the BluSKY form, then either the 3rd party License Scanning software from Token works has stopped working or the BluB0X interface software  between the 3rd party software and BluSKY stopped working.

These instructions should help you get a license scanner to start commuinicating with BluSKY again.

Check if the 3rd Party software is running
  1. Go to the Windows Landing Page (the one that displays all your icons) 
  2. At the bottom right, on the task bar, click the caret that gives access to the menu shown below (your menu may show different items). 
  3. Determine whether the black & yellow “ID” icon is displayed.  The “ID” icon is only displayed if the 3rd party software is running.
    • If the “ID” icon is displayed, go to step 4. 
    • If the “ID” icon is not displayed, go to step 6. 
  4. Right click the “ID” icon. You will be given a choice as shown below: 
  5. Click “Show Application” – the ID Wedge Pro window shown below will appear: 
    • Swipe a drivers license.  If the drivers license details do not show up in the IDWedge Pro form, then we need to restart the 3rd party software.
    • Click "Exit Application” 
  6. Restart the IDWedge Pro Application
    • On your desktop should be the IDWedge Pro application 
    • Right click and select "Run as administrator"
  7. You will see a pop-up for permission to start this application.
    • Select "Yes"
  8. Swipe a drivers license and see if the First and Last name are populated in the BluSKY form.
    • If you DO see the fields populated you are done and can stop here and continue on your day.
    • If you DO NOT see the fields populated then continue to the next step to restart the whole service.
