this sounds great. but I'm still looking for a windows compatible sane DLL.
Do you mean that I can just compile the sane source code in visual studio as
a Win32 DLL?? I may be mistaken somewhere. I'm not familiar with linux

If there is a DLL that I can compile and/or install in WIndows XP and use as
an API, then that's just what I want. Please let me know where I can
download it as source or compiled version.

I think such a DLL will work fine with C# frontend.

BTW, there is already one SANE frontend that also works with Windows XP,
