i can reinstall a operating system on a scanner?

Specs: Windows 10
Because the technical features are limited I would like to know if I can reinstall a Windows operating system on Android for a barcode scanner like this one.

On Android, no, since it itself is an operating system. The version of Windows for the scanner you point to requires Windows 7 Embedded, thus you'd need specific instructions on how to install the OS on it.

Furthermore, Android devices cannot run Windows anyway because the hardware on Android devices is incompatible with Windows.

Hi Varmyss,

for such queries, it helps much if you advise the Make and full model number of the device concerned.

Also the device type (e.g laptop, tablet etc.) if not apparent.

Knowing this, some here may be able to advice if a os or firmware upgrade is available and how to install.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Mike,

There is a link to info about the device in the next-to-last
word of the original post.

The original poster's mention of "Android" appears to be
completely irrelevant, since the device is designed to use
Windows 7 Embedded, and thus cannot use any other OS
such as Android or a general-purpose version of Windows.

Hi Jeff,

Varmyss does say *LIKE* this one',

I was supplying general advice, as many fail to appreciate the importance of providing these basic details, including the *FULL* model number.

Even one character changed can make a World of Difference.

Doubt reinstalling the os will help.
As with Mobile Phones, it is good practice to Cold Boot on occasion rather than continually Warm Boot.

Possibly a User Guide was supplied which may have upgrading details..

Sometimes my Crystal Ball helps though! :-)

Regards - Mike
