Hi Guys,

I am not able to scan using WIA after deploying my web application in IIS 7.5
I tried this in Windows 7 and Server 2012.

Even "ScanImage" function is not calling . When comment the line "ShowAcquireImage" then application calling ScanImage function otherwise it displays message as waiting for response in browser.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Below is my function for scanning.
<securitypermission(securityaction.demand,> _
    Public Function ScanImage(ByVal outputFormat As ImageFormat, ByVal fileName As String) As System.Drawing.Image
        If outputFormat Is Nothing Then
            Throw New ArgumentNullException("outputFormat")
        End If
        Dim filePerm As New FileIOPermission(FileIOPermissionAccess.AllAccess, fileName)
        Dim imageObject As ImageFile = Nothing

            If WiaManager Is Nothing Then
                WiaManager = New CommonDialogClass()
            End If
imageObject = WiaManager.ShowAcquireImage(WiaDeviceType.ScannerDeviceType, WiaImageIntent.ColorIntent, WiaImageBias.MinimizeSize, outputFormat.Guid.ToString("B"), True, False, False) 

''I am getting issue on above line

            'Byte[] imageBytes = (byte[])imageObject.FileData.get_BinaryData();
            Dim imageBytes As Byte() = imageObject.FileData.BinaryData()
            ' <– Converts the ImageFile to a byte array
            Dim ms As New MemoryStream(imageBytes)

            'System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(ms);

            Dim bmp As New Bitmap(System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(ms))

            Dim fileName1 As String = "D:\VBTest111.jpg"

            bmp.Save(fileName1, ImageFormat.Jpeg)
            Return System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(fileName1)

        Catch ex As COMException
            Dim message As String = "Error scanning image"
            Throw New WiaOperationException(message, ex)
            If imageObject IsNot Nothing Then
            End If
        End Try
    End Function

1.please check that the scanner has WIA drivers
2.The application you are running on the machine has installed WIA drivers.
