While I am working on Capturesco as a scanning/Capturing tool for Alfresco by using WIA, I faced a problem using ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) to scan images. I did some googling on the Internet until I found this article ADF using WIA, the article was for C#, I converted to VB.Net and did some modifications on the code to make it work.
The code will detect if there is a pages on the feeder if not, it will stop scanning, the code need some modifications to add multipages supports, for now all images will be saved as tiff on the C drive.
You can get the Scanning Code from Here

To play FLV files for SWF files in a windows application you have to:
- Downloaded Flash player
- Added Com object (Macromedia Flash Factory Object) into the VB .Net Toolbox
- Drag and drop Com object onto a form
- download JW FLV Media Player from here
- load the “player.swf” file and send to it the parameters like the video name, etc… here you can find the parameter list
I put the below code on the load form event as an example
Dim swftoload As String
swftoload = “c:\player.swf?file=video.flv&autostart=true&logo=logo.PNG&smoothing=true”
Enjoy playing flv files within your application or create you own FLV Player
