Customization of DTWAIN using DTWAIN32.INI

Top  Previous  Next

The DTWAIN Initialization file for the 32-bit library is DTWAIN32.INI.   The INI file must be placed in the system directory (for example: C:\WINDOWS or C:\WINNT) or the directory specified in the call to DTWAIN_SysInitializeEx. These files control DTWAIN language setting, error logging, and capability override information.


The non-varying sections of the DTWAIN32.INI file are as follows

[Language]  (sets the language to use)

[DSMErrorLogging] (sets the logging features)


The other sections in the DTWAIN32.INI file are used to Override Twain Source behavior
