Hi,
I've tested your QR Code Generator.
If i set an ECI Encoding, the QR Code doesn't work on Windows Phone with standard bing QR Code Scanner. If i set ECI Encoding to None all works fine. On Android or IOS Devices there aren't any problems.
Windows Phone is supporting different Encoding Types. I testet it on http://zxing.appspot.com/generator/ and this is working fine (UTF-8, or ISO-8859-1).
Any idea why this is not working?

Is it also possible that you implement UTF-8 encoding?

@Mariah: It doesn't even work on the Telerik Demo Page: QR Code Generator
If i set any Encoding, Android & IOS working fine, but Windows Phones will fail to read the QR Code.

Hello,

 Indeed it appears that currently there are some issue with the QR code on some readers, to improve the behavior you can set OutputType to  "EmbeddedPNG" and keep the default ECI encoding to "None".
We will try to resolve the issues for future versions of the controls.
