    Also looking through the registry i can confirm that there is no \WindowsEmbedded container so this confirms that the tills we have do not run embedded XP which is why they are wanting to upgrade the software.

    @burgemaster here is my quote from cunninghams:

    Hardware to include -
    1 x Revaluation Unit Communication Device = £ 332.00
    (Win 7 O/S & 1Gb Memory)

    Operating System Upgrade to include -
    4 x PosReady 7 Licences for Touch Screens
    4 x Memory Upgrades for Touch Screens
    Operating System Upgrade Cost = £ 632.00

    Implementation to include –
    Delivery
    Installation of Upgrade and Hardware
    Setup & Commissioning
    Testing
    Implementation Cost = £ 595.00

    Total Cost = £ 1,559.00
    How long have you had the tills? If they were provided whilst Windows 7 was the current OS then surely Cunninghams should have provided tills with Windows 7 and not used an outdated OS? It then should be their responsibility to do the upgrade without cost to you.

    We've had them for about 2 years.. i think. We were just moving over to windows 7 when we got them and i remember deploying windows 7 just after sp1 came out.

    They provided the tills with an outdated OS then? If its not xp embedded (ours are) then cant you argue with them that they should be responsible for the upgrade at nil cost to you?

    The tills are not xp embedded as ive checked the registry keys and the embedded keys are missing which makes me believe its not the embedded version even though its got the embedded license sticker on and they have used the license key from the sticker. We have a meeting set up with them about this but i dont think ill get anywhere with them.
