Full Version: Scanning With Pmview Pro 3.51 And Ecs 2.0rc2

I am running eCS 2.0 RC2 & 3 (which includes TAME) and PMView Pro v 3.51. I can use the version of TAME that came with eCS to scan documents, BUT I have NOT been able to figure out how to scan from PMView.

There is no twain*.dll provided with eCS 2.0 RC2 or 3.
I downloaded sane2twain090.zip from Hobbes and tried using the TWAIN files from that package, to no avail.

What do I need to allow PMView to use the TAME/SANE package included with eCS 2.0?

Thanks!
Peter
Twain is the most widely supported standard for scanners. Please see http://www.twain.org

OS/2 Twain drivers are provided by CFM (http://www.cfm.de/index_en.htm) and STi Inc. We recommend the CFM drivers as they are fully compliant with the Twain standard.

PMView does not yet have support for the SANE/TAME interface. (At the time scanning was implemented into PMView, SANE/TAME did not even exist yet. It is that new!)

well there is/was an attempt to change this:
http://svn.netlabs.org/sane2twain

I don't know how well this works and how much feedback Peter K. got, when he asked...

What I use is something like this one-liner.cmd:

scanimage -here -your -parameters 1>image.pnm 2>errors.txt && pmview image.pnm

This is not scanning from pmview, but the other way round. Scanning and immediately
open the scanned image with pmview afterwards.
