     Not so long ago I wanted to add scanning (image acquisition) facility to an application I was working on, but, alas, do you think I could find anything on the net? To assist my fellow coders, I have put together a sample application utilizing the Windows Image Acquisition Library, to acquire images, printing and preview the images, etc., etc., etc. I do realize that I have not commented enough of the lines, but I am sure that you'll get the gist of the code pretty quickly. I have included a GPL to ensure that you are and will not be violating any copyrights. So, enjoy and keep me posted. Your comments are welcome so don't be shy. NOTE: You must have the latest Windows Image Acquisition Library v2 in order to run this application. If not, you can download this from MSDN. Regards, T. C.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
