Insert from Scanner or Camera
Just I noticed [from a customer complain] that if you have word hosted [embedded] in any active document host, like Excel etc. and you try to do a Insert-> Image from Scanner or Camera, then word crashes. So what resolution do I have for this? not a great one ..I confess but, something is better then nothing .. for now you can use Windows Image Acquisition Library to transfer the image to your HDD and then use it.
Alex also talks about this library and how and why did he use it http://alexdyb.blogspot.com/2006/01/document-scan-in-modi.html
for the bonus look at the comments section of the article ..happy coding :)
