BarCode Reader SDK sample in C# demonstrating ‘Acquire Barcode From Scanner And Decode’

// This example demonstrates camera image acquiring using Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) interface.
// BarCode Reader SDK has builtin WIAImageScanner class for WIA.
// If you experienced issues with this example, please try another example located in /Visual Basic.NET/Read From Live Video Cam/
