We are looking into appeon sollutions to take our pb7.03
application to web.
I know that we have to convert to higher version of PB.
our application is Point of sale software.
so, my question is that does appeon conversion support
receipt printing, badge printing, pop cash drawers?
Basically is it going to work with all the POS terminal
peripherals.
thanks in advance.

Both Appeon Advanced Edition and Enterprise Edition support calling
client-side DLLs and Win32 API. Through this type of client-side
integration, it should be possible to control peripherals, such as the cash
drawer you mentioned.
