I'm trying to use WIA to scan multiple pages through the document feeder. I can access the scanner, connect to the scanner, and even actually scan but it doesn't quite work as expected. If I have more than one page in the document feeder the scanner scans all pages at once and then creates a single image that is only the first page. I'm following the examples from here: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/edaa6de7-e372-4b57-89a5-dd74c5f30983/adf-scanning-using-wia-only-one-image-saved?forum=csharpgeneral

There seems to be some reference to other people experiencing the same problem and a link to a supposed solution here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/261820

Unfortunately, that link is dead so I'm hoping someone here might have a clue. How do I get the scanner to actually scan multiple pages rather than feed them all but only scan the first one?
