New in version 2.1.0 of Verifier.EXE (02 October 2017)




  • New Windows Installer, and introducing a new version numbering scheme. Bug fix releases will now increment the third number of the version, and feature releases the second. The software title is now "Axicon Linear Verifier" everywhere it appears. This installer will uninstall any  installed older version.


  • Verifier.exe will now detect if plugins have been installed in Windows  VirtualStore by older versions. It will remove them if they are duplicates of plugins installed under <Program Files>; otherwise, it will display a  warning dialogue. It also checks for the presence of corecode.ini in  VirtualStore.


  • Fractional ISO grading and new defects calculation algorithm from ISO/IEC 15416:2016 is implemented, but disabled by default in this release. It will be enabled in a forthcoming version; 2.1.0 will be able to load saved scan files from this future version, but earlier (2.0) versions will refuse to  load scan files made with fractional grading enabled.


  • Newly-installed plugins are now disabled by default (except for the standard install's AICheck, ISBN, JobRef, and UPC): after installing plugins, you'll have to enable them in the Setup dialogue Plugins tab.

New in version of Verifier.EXE (21st July 2016)




  • Removed a couple of redundant and non-effective settings from the Lookup plugin settings.


  • Lookup in Excel .xls and .xlst spreadsheet files and Access .mbd databases now works (read-only in Excel files for now).

New in version of Verifier.EXE (21st June 2016)




  • When scanning environment is set to 'Automatic', assume that all EAN/UPC codes scanned with a 6000 are intended for retail/hand scanning environment, even if their X dimension is > 495µm.


  • Removed the not-terribly-useful cscan.exe from the installation.


  • Check that the directory selected for CSV file saving exists, and only enable the 'Write CSV' button when a CSV file name has been configured.


  • Online verifier is now named Inline in installer and shortcuts.


  • Inline verifier now uses 250µm aperture for all GS1-128 and ITF-14 codes, and for all EAN/UPC codes with X dimension >= 495µm, and has a setting to allow choosing the scanning environment to override this.


  • Inline verifier software no longer uses the BDE for its list of duplicate codes: instead, it uses an SQLite database, and provides a utility, sqliteimport.exe, to copy records from the old Paradox duplicates database.


  • Distinguish between erroneous and extraneous Function 1 characters in AICheck.


  • Added new Application Identifiers 394, 8010, 8011, 8012, 8111, and 8200 to  AICheck.


  • Improvements to GS-1 HTML report template.


  • Lookup plugin now uses ADO database connection directly, and no longer depends on the BDE. It can also lookup in CSV files directly, making the TextLookup plugin obsolete, and has many other improvements and bug fixes too.


  • ScanDB no longer uses the BDE, nor any database backend at all: it simply maintains a text file list of .scn files, from which it can generate CSV files as before.


  • Autorun.EXE's 'Install Optional Plugins' is now a separate executable, pluginst.exe, which runs with elevated privileges, and attempts to move any plugins installed into VirtualStore by previous versions to the correct location under <Program Files>.


  • All installed executable files are now signed.


Bug fixes:


  • Fix addon gap checking for UPC-E.


  • Fix a number of bugs in the HIBC plugin.


  • Fix hiding 'Tick all' and 'Untick all' buttons in UserData when no tick boxes have been defined.


  • Remove the hard-coded limit on the number of columns in the lookup plugin database, fixing the "Range check error" when there were more than this number, and fixed a crash when trying to recover from a database error on startup.


  • Fix Repgen so scripts using StrToFloat/FloatToStr work in locales where the decimal separator is ','.


  • Code 128 characters with invalid parity are now not decoded again: the change in to allow decoding Code 128s with invalid parity led to occasional misdecoding of both EAN/UPC and Code 128, and other subtle bugs. There's a new corecode.ini [Code 128] flag bit (of 0x40) to enable decoding such characters if the need ever arises. The old flag bit value (0x20) to disable decoding of invalid parity Code 128 characters is now ignored.


  • Fix for settings not being completely saved when plugin test string list contains an empty item.


New in version of Verifier.EXE (09 October 2015)




  • Default maximum number of scans in continuous scan mode is now 106.


  • X-dimension of EAN/UPC codes is always shown before magnification, and magnification now isn't ever shown for any other GS1 code types, in accordance with the current General Specification.


  • When the scanning environment is set to 'General Retail/Hand Scanning', issue a warning for GS1-128 and ITF-14 codes with X dimension > 495 µm.

  • Grade in Summary window is now shown in ISO 15416 compliant format.

New in version of Verifier.EXE (26 August 2015)


  • AIDate plugin now allows checking for dates up to 9,999 days in the past or future, and includes AI 16 'Sell By' in the list of AIs to check for dates.


  • There's a new setting, 'GS1 Scanning Environment', to choose which aperture should be used for GS1 bar codes where the intended scanning environment and required aperture cannot be inferred from the code itself. The default setting is 'Automatic', which should behave correctly for the majority of uses. If the automatic setting guesses wrongly, it's possible to force either 'General Distribution' or 'Retail' as the intended use, which switch to a 250µm (10) or 150µm (06) aperture respectively for codes for which either aperture might be valid. This brings aperture selection for GS1-128 and ITF-14 in line with the current GS-1 General Specifications.


  • Lookup plugin includes new 'Prompt for Reference' mode and 'Log Field' feature.


  • Code 128 codes with characters of invalid parity can now be decoded.

  • Always report check digits of incompletely decoded EAN/UPC codes as invalid characters.
  • Fix lookup plugin returning the result of the previous database lookup if the settings resulted in trying to look up an empty string.
  • Use the correct light margin tolerances for EAN/UPC codes (as per the  GenSpec), rather than always overriding them with 0.5 modules.
  • Fix short read of Databar Expanded reversed code rows with odd numbers of data characters, and prevent the possibility of short-reading Databar-14.

  • Updated Korean translation.
  • Replace user-visible occurrences of 'Narrow Bar Width' and 'NBW' with 'X dimension' and 'X dim' respectively.
