A twain library for .net written in vb.net 2005.
Adapted from vb.net port on planet-source-code.com of the netMaster's c# project at:

openTwain is a library for profile based scanning from twain devices. The profiles are based on CustomDsData.
Once the profile is created, scanning can take place without (depending on settings) any intervention.
No handle is required from the hosting app as a custom messagepump is embedded in the openTwain library.
The embedded messagepump makes scanning possible from console and windows service projects - it also frees the host app from the standard requirement of modifying their messageloop (I never liked that part).
