Hi David,
I just googled it. But cant tell now from where I downloaded it because i visited so many places searching for a solution...
Do you have a specific download ? Please ?

Windows normally comes with twain_32.dll.. I think your problem is calling unmanaged code from managed code

Can you please explain what is "calling unmanaged code from managed code"
and what canI do to recover my twain_32.dll I may have overwriten my original....
thank you
twain_32.dll should be in the C:\Windows folder.

Check for it there.  Under Properties for that file should be the following:

File version
Product version

Also do that for the other versions in your computer and report back what you find.

After performing a sfc -scannow I found :

c:\windows\twain_32.dll                      file version product version
Get rid of the one in c:\windows\system32

If the one in c:\windows\syswow64 was one you copied there then get rid of it as well.
