    QR codes generated by Microsoft Barcode Control 16.0 are generally static, meaning they contain fixed information such as a URL, text, or contact details, and do not have an inherent time limit or restriction on the number of scans. These QR codes remain valid indefinitely unless the content they point to becomes inaccessible or changes. Unlike dynamic QR codes, which redirect through an intermediary service and can be subject to time limits or scan restrictions imposed by the service provider, static QR codes do not expire and can be scanned an unlimited number of times. Therefore, QR codes created using Microsoft Barcode Control 16.0 can be scanned as often as needed, as long as the underlying content remains available!
