Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

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

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 1.7.1.3
Product version 1.7.1.0

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 1.7.1.3 product version 1.7.1.0
c:\windows\system32\twain_32.dll                        1.7.1.1                              1.7.1.0
c:\windows\syswow64\twain_32.dll                       1.7.1.1                              1.7.1.3

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.
