sane under windows XP / 7
2012-09-04 15:33:50 GMT
I'm trying to write a multi platform scanning utility using SANE but,
while everything with linux is fine, opening the device and all, I find
issues with windows, both xp 32 and 7 64 bit. I downloaded the source
and compiled it using cygwin and the libusb-win32 library and everything
went fine; some of the backends didn't build:
*** canon_pp backend requires libieee1284 library - disabling
*** gphoto2 backend requires gphoto2 and JPEG libraries - disabling
*** hpsj5s backend requires libieee1284 library - disabling
*** mustek_pp backend requires libieee1284 and paraport-directio libraries - disabling
*** mustek_usb2 backend requires pthread library - disabling
*** pint backend requires sys/scanio.h - disabling
*** qcam backend requires ioperm and portaccess functions - disabling
*** v4l backend requires v4l libraries - disabling
*** pnm backend not manually selected - disabling
which is ok for me, since the scanner I'm trying to reach is a HP Scanjet 5300C, which should use the avisio backend. I thought it could be a USB driver issue so I used libwdi's zadig program to switch the normal xp driver with the libusb-win32 one. After that sane-find-scanner could correctly recognize the scanner but no luck using scanimage.
Did I do something wrong? Did I miss something?
On top of that I'm using Java and JNA to interface with SANE; again everything using linux is fine, while with windows it correctly loads the library and then hangs at the first call of sane_init(null, null) . Someone got an idea about that?
