CardScan SDK

The CardScan SDK provides everything you need to integrate CardScan business card scanning capability into a Windows-based application. Use it to:

  • 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.

The 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 customized 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 customized 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
  • 256 MB of memory
  • 100 MB of free space on a local hard drive
