Even though the focus of Aloaha is put on Smart Cards we do have APIs to read 2W, 3W, i2c Memory Cards such as the famous SLE4428, SLE4442, telephone cards, german KVK (Krankenversicherungskarte), Kinko, Student Card, etc.
The API to read such cards is included in the Aloaha Cardconnector, Credential Provider and Smartlogon. No license is required to just read them!
set cr = createobject(“AloahaSync.SyncAPI”)
reader = cr.ReaderNamesCSV
if reader<>”" then
If cr.Connect(reader) = True Then
set cr = nothing
For german KVK Cards please also try API: cr.KVK_Content
Please note that for the new German Health Card (eGK / Gesundheitskarte) you should follow the instructions on: http://blog.aloaha.com/2012/03/21/deutsche-gesundheitskarte-auslesen/
Please make sure that when you are using an HID/Omnikey Reader that you install the Sync API additionally to the reader driver. When using SCM Microsystems Reader you need to make sure that the MCARD API has been installed additionally to the reader driver!
