im attempting to access an epson scanner through use of the kodak library but im having trouble working out all the methods and properties of the library.

i have the following:

Dim Scanner as ImgScan

If Scanner.ScannerAvailable Then
    MsgBox "Success"
End If

at the point "Scanner.ScannerAvailable" i always get the error:

"Run-time error 91"
"Object Variable or With Block Variable not set"

what do i assign the object "Scanner" to?

Hello Simon,

         In your Coding u r declaring a variable Scanner as ImgScan. But u have to initialise the variable. thatswhy u r getting this error .

"Object Variable with block variable not set." .

Try to initialize the Scanner Variable. The coding for initialization is

  Set Scanner=new ImgScan

I think this code will work.

Dim Scanner as New ImgScan 'Notice New is added

If Scanner.ScannerAvailable Then
   MsgBox "Success"
End If

Before checking for if scanner.scanneravailable you should create the object. That is done using the NEW keyword.

Alternatively you can do it as below,

Dim Scanner as ImgScan

set Scanner = New ImgScan

If Scanner.ScannerAvailable Then
   MsgBox "Success"
End If
