Decodes my binary QR correctly, but erroneously assumes that they are incorrectly structured. Saving a PDF with a character representation of a binary file is useless to me, I need to save the binary stream directly to a file. Sending the QR codes to the dedicated Windows server works well for text but saves blank files with binary data.

Dear Alexander, thanks for your rating. Maybe you could try to use the "send Barcode to PC" to send the binary data to computer where you can save the data.

Attempting to create an account it just spins on the loading screen with no activity. This was the first product I found that actually scans (properly) the codes I need scanned and put in a spreadsheet, but can't do so without being able to register and use the sat portion of the app.

barValid is more exacting on the GS1-128 standard than others I have used. I find this application helpful because it tells us when something is wrong. When I had difficulty understanding the program results, I was able to get help by email.
