Verifone 1000se USB Pinpad - Working Driver

** Please note that the EMV compatible credit card integrations in the newer versions of Atrex make the 1000se pinpad obsolete.

While we have had some success with the version of the driver supplied by Verifone for the 1000se pinpad, some users are still reporting problems.  

If the driver from the verifone web site does NOT work properly, a modified version of the much older driver which uses the Windows virtual serial port drivers is needed in order for Atrex to communicate with the pinpad device.  Before proceeding, download the modified driver from,  and unzip the driver to a folder on your hard drive. 

The following are instructions on how to install the Verifone 1000SE USB Driver.

Installing into Windows 7

  1. Plug the pinpad into a empty USB connection.

  2. Click on the Windows Start button.

  3. Right-Click “Computer” and select “Manage”.

  4. Select “Device Manager” from the popup menu.

  5. You should see the “PINpad 1000SE” as an entry under “Other Devices”. If you do not see this entry, look for “Qx_PP1000 USB UART Device” under “Ports (COM & LPT)” 

  6. Right-click on whichever entry you found in step 3 and select Update Driver Software. 

  7. When prompted for the driver location, click the option that says “Select Browse my computer for driver software”.

  8. Select “Let me pick from a list of devices on my computer”.

  9. Click “Show all Devices”. 

  10. Click Next.

  11. Click Have Disk. 

  12. Click Browse.

  13. Select the folder that you copied the driver file to and select the verifone_PP1000SE usb-uart.inf file. 

  14. Select Open.

  15. Select OK.

  16. Select Next.

  17. A warning will be displayed that indicates that Windows can't verify the publisher of the driver. Select “Install this driver software anyway”.

  18. Windows will indicate that the driver has been installed. Select Close. 

  19. The pinpad should then move and be listed under the “Ports (COM & LPT)” section as “PP1000se”. 

  20. Make note of the COM port that was assigned to the pinpad and use this value to configure Atrex for communication with the Pin Pad.

You are free to use the .inf file as it is supplied, but we are no longer directly supporting this as we have moved to a more secure processing method for credit and debit cards. If you have or acquire your own code signing certificate, you can sign it yourself ( ) or contact Verifone to see if they have an updated version of the driver that works.
