• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

EDIT: Nevermind, sorry. I just turned off app access to the WS1080 as an experiment, and EZScan talks to the scanner just fine.

All users of Win10 having problems with communicating with their WS-10xx or TRX-x scanners should look at this. I just took a major Win10 update last night, and tonight was reviewing my privacy settings, and found this. So anyone having issues should check their privacy settings, under the Other devices section. Possible that if this is turned off, EZScan might not talk to your scanner.
