how to write code for scanning in vb.net

I am trying to find a (non-expensive) utility / component which I can use to perform file scanning functionality. The utility should be callable from my .net applications which are compiled for all CPU.

If you can provide code tha I can use in vb.nt, That will be even better.
Please help. Thanks

If you're hardcore, then you can implement a TWAIN interface yourself. There is a good starter project here:


Outside of that, there are numerous TWAIN components available online:


You'd have to clarify what "non-expensive" means to you.

I appreciate so much your valuable help, and I feel I fall in love with "vintasoft". It has quite reasonable price (less than 200 CAD) for a single developer license. and the limitation is that I can distribute only 100 copies / year royalty free. Is their any catch you know about?. It looks too good to be true. Please reply. Thanks

I have not used any of those suggestions myself. I worked with the CodeProject code 5 or so years ago. TWAIN is not trivial, but it's not extremely complicated either.

Hi fmichail,

I see that you already closed this question after receiving some excellent advice from kaufmed, but one point I'd like to add is that I find the TWAIN Working Group site to be a great source of information for all things TWAIN-related:

Good luck with your project! Regards, Joe
