Hi everybody,
I am trying to use the WIA Automation Layer to show the
Photo Printing Wizard for a photo file in C++.

I embedded a CommonDialog COM object from wiaaut.dll into
my MFC app, and generated a C++ wrapper for it using VC++ 6.

Here is my code:

      CoInitialize( NULL );

      ICommonDialog cmDlg;

      VARIANT pVariant;
      pVariant.vt = VT_BSTR;
      CString tmp = "D:\\DSC01132.JPG";
      pVariant.bstrVal = tmp.AllocSysString();


but the wizard doesn't appear.
Anyone can help me with this?
