After Installation

A few items to keep in mind after the installation of the FreightWise Desktop App are as follows.

 

Disable Scale Support

In some cases the user will not have a USB scale that is connected with the Windows PC. It is best to disable it at that time since it can interfere with the main actions of the BOL and Shipment building if no scale is attached.
 

To disable the scale:

  • Open the FreightWise application
  • Click Settings -> Scale -> Disable
