Help - "Could not open HID device"

Hi all:

I've plugged a Cuecat (bar scan reader) into the USB port via the Ratshack PS2 --> USB converter.

When the computer reboots the error message cited above is displayed.

When I click OK, it logs me in. I go to device manager and look through properties of HID devices and XP claims all is working properly.

I installed Catnip rather than the software that comes with Cuecat.

Does anyone know what is causing this error or how to get rid of it? XP settings issue or device/driver issue?

Perhaps you should check admin. tools>services>HID Input services, set to automatic. Just a 'shot in the dark', hope it helps.

Been troubleshootin'

Admin tools --> services --> HID is set to automatically start

Cue cat does work after OKing through errors.

If boot w/o cuecat, then plug it in, XP finds it and enables it, ie, all is OK. The only problem is booting while attached and the only reason that's a problem is that you have to OK through errors to get a complete boot. Unless someone can help, looks like my cuecat is a 'keep disconnected until you need it' device.:(

You probably get that problem when booting cause it was made to use a keyboard's bios. This is why if you plug one into a PS/2 slot without a keyboard hooked up it does'nt work.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
