Additional Notes

I was finally able to isolate the exact location where just the twain source is located. I've included it here, in a zip file - and some instructions too. Easy, and it works like a charm! I can't believe what a pain in the butt this was - and that Umax couldn't post this online for their users. Shame on them!
