Problems with Windows Image Acquisition (WIA 2.) RRS feed

  • Question

    My application is supposed to scan documents. I did a ToolBox > Browse to the the WIA 2.0DLL (wiaaut.dll) as to add it to my toolbox. This visually put the CommonDialog and DeviceManager in the toolbox. I then dropped them on the form.

    On one computer this works fine. On another, the form won't even open. All I get is an error stating, "The application encountered problems and needs to close down. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

    Anyone know why?

  • Let me also add that if I remove the WIA 2.0 controls from the form, it opens fine, so I know this is the problem.

  • Are both PCs Windows XP, and do both PCs have the WIA dll registered? WIA is only supported in XP and ME. 2k is out of luck, and I'm sure I read somewhere that VIsta uses Windows Portable Devices.
