Twain vs. CodeGear Delphi 2009

I'm working with a project in CodeGear Delphi 2009. My goal is to get access to a TWAIN unit by using Gustavo Daud's DelphiTwain component (http://delphitwain.sourceforge.net). The problem is, that I can't make it work.

I've tried to download his example project (the one named "Full twain features").  It works fine, when running the precompiled exe file ("Example.exe"), I can choose my scanner in the "select source" dialog, and then control from the program. But when I try to open the project and compile it my self, there ain't any Twain units in the "Select source" dialog.

Anyone with experience in using this component in Delphi 2009 or an idea about what the problem could be? Or, if not, an idea of, how to make it work without this component (but still for free)?

Best regards
Mads

This is no answer by any means but just some information.

The latest date on that code is 2004. To even make it compile with 2009 could be a feat. Not certain if you got it compiled.

Anyway... A long time ago I experimented with his code in seeking a decent TWAIN component and got it to work on Delphi 5.

Do not waste your time. There were some things, like being able to use a document feeder, more than one sheet and multiple scans in a row, that just did not work.

Just for info I ended up using Multi-Twain which uses the EZTWAIN library. All this is old code and will take a bit of work to compile and run in D2009.

Just Google them and try them if interested.

Hi again. Sorry for the late answer. I ended up using a compnent called MHTWAIN, which works fine.
