How to Install and Use the IBM 4610 Native Windows Driver
The IBM 4610 Native Windows Driver (NWD) is a printer driver for Microsoft Windows, so that you can print to your RS232, USB or ethernet 4610 or 6145 printer from any Windows application without needing to make any changes to your POS application. This article will guide you through the steps of installing and using the NWD on your Windows system.
Installing the NWD
To install the NWD, you will need to download the zip file that contains the driver files from the Toshiba Commerce website. The zip file name is IBM_4610_NWD_v1.7.11.zip and it is located under the section "Native Windows Driver (NWD)" on the page "Diagnostics, Drivers & Downloads". You can also use this [link] to access the page directly.
After downloading the zip file, you will need to extract its contents to a folder on your system. You can use any zip extraction tool, such as WinZip or 7-Zip, to do this. The extracted folder should contain the following files:
IBM_4610_NWD.inf: The driver information file that tells Windows how to install and configure the driver.
IBM_4610_NWD.cat: The driver catalog file that contains the digital signature of the driver.
IBM_4610_NWD.dll: The driver dynamic link library file that contains the driver functions.
IBM_4610_NWD.hlp: The driver help file that provides additional information and troubleshooting tips.
IBM_4610_NWD.ini: The driver initialization file that contains the default settings for the driver.
IBM_4610_NWD.pdf: The driver user guide that explains how to use the driver and its features.
To install the driver, you will need to connect your 4610 or 6145 printer to your system using either RS232, USB or ethernet interface. If you are using an ethernet interface, you will also need to configure the network parameters of your printer using the browser-based printer configuration utility. You can access this utility by entering the IP address of your printer in your web browser. For more details, please refer to the user guide of your printer model.
Once your printer is connected and configured, you can install the driver by following these steps:
Open the Control Panel and select "Devices and Printers".
Click on "Add a printer" and choose "The printer that I want isn't listed".
Select "Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings" and click "Next".
Select the port that corresponds to your printer interface. For RS232, choose "COMx", where x is the number of your serial port. For USB, choose "USB001" or another USB port if you have multiple printers connected. For ethernet, choose "Standard TCP/IP Port" and enter the IP address of your printer. Click "Next".
Click on "Have Disk" and browse to the folder where you extracted the driver files. Select "IBM_4610_NWD.inf" and click "Open". Click "OK".
Select "IBM 4610 Native Windows Driver" from the list of printers and click "Next".
Enter a name for your printer and click "Next". You can also choose to share your printer with other users on your network if you wish.
Click "Finish" to complete the installation. You can now print a test page to verify that your printer is working properly.
Using the NWD
To use the NWD, you can simply print from any Windows application that supports printing, such as Notepad, Word or Excel. The NWD will automatically detect the type of document you are printing and send it to your printer in either text or graphics mode. You can also adjust some settings of the driver, such as paper size, cut mode, print speed and font, by accessing the printer properties from the print dialog of your application.
The NWD also supports some advanced features, such as barcode printing, logo printing, slip printing and cash drawer control. To use these features, you will need to insert some special commands in your document that the driver will recognize and execute. These commands are enclosed in curly braces and start with a slash /. For example, to print a barcode, you can use the command /B 1234567890, where 1234567890 is the data to be encoded in the barcode. For more details on how to use these commands and their syntax, please refer to the driver user guide.
The IBM 4610 Native Windows Driver is a convenient and versatile way to print to your 4610 or 6145 printer from any Windows application. It offers fast and reliable communication, easy installation and configuration, and support for various features and functions.
