Read a 2D (ID Card) Barcode from an image in VB6

EdwardSpecht used Ask the Experts™
The user will place an ID Card on a TWAIN scanner and press a "Capture ID" button in my application.  I need to find the necessary code and componenet to "read" the barcode and fill textboxes in my VB form (Name, Address, ID#, Type of ID, Date of Birth, etc.).  I've googled this many times and found plenty of expensive runtime licensing and dead ends.  Looking for an inexpensive solution.  Thank you.

I've been in contact with your recommendation at  Although the solution is considerably more expensive it is also far more capable than I could have imagined.  They have a fantastic product and I will do my best to incorporate the extra licensing costs into my pricing model.  Thank you very much for the lead!! : )
