CardScan<sup>®</sup> SDK
CardScan® SDK
The CardScan SDK provides everything you need to integrate CardScan business card scanning capability into a Windows®-based application.
  • Integrate business card scanning into customer-facing applications such as kiosks, trade show registration systems, lead capture software and survey applications.
  • Integrate business card scanning into in-house or commercial sales automation or contact management applications.
  • Integrate scanning of other business card-sized documents (name badges, labels, driver licenses, etc.) to capture and store their images.
CardScan SDK is available in two versions:
  • CardScan SDK Lite, for developing applications that run in conjunction with installed CardScan software. All end-users of applications customised using CardScan SDK Lite must have individual licenses of CardScan software already installed.
  • CardScan SDK (Full Version), for developing standalone applications. You must include a CardScan scanner with each copy of your stand-alone application, or purchase a CardScan software license for each copy of the application.

System requirements for developers. To develop an application using either version of the CardScan SDK you'll need:
  • A compiler and linker compatible with libraries and DLLs generated by Microsoft® Visual C++ version 5.0 or later (for example, Microsoft® Visual C++ 5.0 or later, or Visual Basic 5.0 or later)
  • CardScan 8.0 or later. The CardScan SDK uses libraries and data files that are included with CardScan. You must install CardScan 8.0 or later to run the SDK demo.
  • Microsoft® Windows® 2000, Windows® XP or Windows® Vista
System requirements for end-users. To run an application customised using the CardScan SDK, your end-users will need:
  • An Intel-compatible PC with a Pentium® processor
  • Microsoft® Windows® 2000, Windows® XP or Windows® Vista
