Parking machine with Windows errors

Windows errors on parking machine

I was at the Perth airport on the weekend picking up Wifey.  Went to the parking machine to pay for the ticket and saw this amusing error.

Seems like the parking machine computer needs a bit of an update!  I was surprised to see it running Windows too, but maybe it’s Windows CE.  I tried to press onto the Start button, but (unfortunately) the screen is not a touch screen.

How did parking machines get so complicated?   I remember when the Perth airport carpark used to give you a punch card on entry that you had to give to an attendant on exiting.   I guess running 6 or so PCs and associated software  and maintenance is cheaper in the long run.
