XPCTWAIN is a file import TWAIN driver. It gives additional file import support to existing applications. Does your application not support multipage TIFFs? XPCTWAIN does! Does your application not support JPEG2000? XPCTWAIN does! To make it complete also JPEG, PNG and BMP are supported. Does your application support MDE but can open only one file at once? XPCTWAIN does support multiple file selection and transfer. XPCTWAIN allows you to batch scan a large number of files with one command. XPCTWAIN is to handle like a TWAIN driver but acts like a file open dialog. A checkbox allows you to decide if the files should be copied or moved from the source directory to the target application.

The XPCTWAIN dialog is always in the language of your Windows OS.

XPCTWAIN is available as a single desk license. Volume pricing is available upon request. A demo version is available at our download site.

XPCTWAIN Elite supports in addition to all features of XPCTWAIN also the import of PDF files. Applications which have no PDF import filter but a TWAIN interface can import PDF files with XPCTWAIN Elite. Also multi-page PDF can be imported if the application supports multi page transfers. The source file can be kept of deleted as the user sets it up.

XPCTWAIN Elite can be used with TWAIN compliant applications under the operating systems Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. The usage on a client of a Windows 2012 server is also possible but cannot be guaranteed under all circumstances as here are dependencies which JSE cannot influence. Therefore we recommend that you test with the free demo version of XPCTWAIN Elite if you like to use it in a Windows server environment.


The vendor of the scanner models ScanSnap iX100, ScanSnap iX500, ScanSnap S1300i, ScanSnap iX1300, ScanSnap iX1400, ScanSnap iX1500 and ScanSnap iX1600 does not offer a TWAIN driver for its device as the included driver and ScanSnap software allows intuitive operation without the driver industry standard. Anyhow some users like the ScanSnap scanner but want to use a compatible integration with other scanners and the industry standard TWAIN also for their ScanSnap scanner. JSE now offers for these users a solution. 32 bit and 64 bit TWAIN drivers for the Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners.
The JSE TWAIN driver for ScanSnap scanners requires an installed and working ScanSnap Home software on the Windows system. The TWAIN driver supports Windows 7 to Windows 11. It allows the setting of important scan parameters. The license is per computer. For organisations with multible users volume pricing is available.

  SnapTwain user interface of TWAIN driver for ScanSnap
This is the GUI of the TWAIN driver when using a licensed version. While still beeing in demo mode, there is a register button in addition. The TWAIN driver supports also scanning without user interface.

Please download and test the free demo version of SnapTwain before you buy it. For additional information about the SnapTwain TWAIN driver you may read the SnapTwain manual or the German SnapTwain Handbuch.

TWAINCommander 3
TWAINCommander is a utility for command line scanning from any TWAIN device into image files.
If you want to be independend from changing browser versions and security settings this technology with an interface stable for more than 20 years is the right choise for easy TWAIN integration into your solution or project.
The new TWAINCommander 3 is running under Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and Windows 10. As 32 bit applications it supports both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows versions. TWAINCommander can create JPEG, TIFF, PNG or Bitmap files. And it is so simple. As a TWAIN console application just call e.g. TWAINCOM c:\myfiles\mypic.jpg and TWAINCommander scans an image into the file. The JSE TWAINCommander supports also batch scanning. TWAINCommander is a great productivity tool. It offers Enterprize Class Scanning compliant with the latest TWAIN standards and is that much easier to use than a SDK.

But TWAINCommander can not only run from the DOS prompt. It can also be executed from applications. Nothing is easier than call a shell command from a C, VisualBasic, Delphi or PowerBuilder application. Even from HTML it is possible to access local (client) TWAIN devices like scanners or webcams via two lines of VBScript code. That makes TWAINCommander also interesting for software developers and web designers. c:\myapp\twaincom c:\scans\docu2003.tif -feederon -h -n -paperformatusletter -monochrome -r 200 -multipagetiff -o

The above sample call scans from the ADF with hidden user interface of the TWAIN driver in native transfer mode letter pages monochrome with 200 dpi resolution into a multipage TIFF file. This command can be typed at the prompt, executed from a batch file or executed from an application via shell command. TWAIN access could not be easier than with TWAINCommander.

TWAINCommander is available in two versions. TWAINCommander and TWAINCommander Elite. The Elite version supports PDF as additional output file format. Also barcode recognition is included.

Two licenses of TWAINCommander are available: a single desk license and a corporate/developer license. TWAINCommander is only available via online distribution. A demo version of TWAINCommander is available in the download section. Included with the demo version is a detailed PDF manual of TWAINCommander. If you like to buy TWAINCommander for the first time you may use our online order system at the ORDER page. If you have already a TWAINCommander 2.0 license we offer you an upgrade to TWAINCommander 3. Please ask for conditions.


A command line tool to scan from devices with WIA drivers as scanners, cameras, image grabbers, etc. into image files. Even multipage TIFF is supported. A comprehensive set of command line parameters allow to set different scan and file parameters. The executable of WIACommander can be called by batch, script or ShellExecute. It allows access to WIA image capture devices without any knowledge of the complex WIA API and is a great time saver for solution developers.

CamCommander is a command line tool to capture images from USB cameras into image files. You need only a single line of code to capture from your web cam into a TIFF or JPEG file. It runs in silent mode or with optional live preview. CamCommander can also be called from the prompt of Windows. CamCommander seems to be the easiest way to integrate camera access into applications. It is an ideal utility for process automation in various industries and for governmental applications. The product targets programmers, admins and users. A wide range of cameras are supported. A demo version of CamCommander is available at the download page. Sample call: "camcom c:\temp\sample.jpg -nopreview"
