TOPIC: Scanning into Sign Lab

Scanning into Sign Lab 4 months 2 weeks ago #6654


Can you tell me how to scan a paper image into Sign Lab? I tried going through Sign Lab "Acquire Image" and I get the message "Can't find TWAIN Source Manager (TWAIN.DLL) in your Windows directory". Thanks!

This is from a technote:

Cannot communicate with the scanner - unable to Select Source for the scanner

To communicate with the scanners the applications use Twain api

TWAIN is an applications programming interface (API) and communications protocol that regulates communication between software and digital imaging devices, such as image scanners and digital cameras.

The communication with the scanners using Twain works fine with 32 bits but not with 64 bits applications.

For SignLab to communicate directly with these scanners install it as a 32 bits application

If SignLab is running as a 64 bits application then use the stand-alone software supplied with the scanner to acquire the image then save the acquired image in a popular bitmap format (example BMP). Import the bitmap into Signlab using the File - Import menu function.
