|Received Error: This version of the CED is newer than the last known version|
If you are using a version of the Cayan CED software that has not been approved by Retail Pro, you may see the above error appear before every credit card transaction on your CED device. The message aims to inform users that the detected CED version has not been fully tested and approved by Retail Pro, and therefore may or may not display unexpected behavior.
The user will still be able to run credit card transactions, but the prompt will pop up before each transaction, which is undesirable.
