The problem is that it stopped working about a month ago. I have been digging into it and can't seem to get the attention of the developer. I opened an issue on Sourceforge where's it's maintained, but no one has responded. I have searched the web for links to this problem with no success.
What is the failure: Windows defined an interface (around 2002) called the WIA Automation Layer. This allows an application to get data from a scanner or a video camera with a very clean and simple set of calls. Well, iCopy uses this interface. So I dug into it to try some things.
It turns out that the very first function one calls in WIA is (VBA Excel 2003 code):
Set manager = CreateObject("WIA.DeviceManager")This fails with an error "Class Not Registered (80040154)
I can't find out what this means. And why, after 3 years, that it would start failing.
Does anyone have any experience with WIA and can give me some direction?
Thanks in advance.
