Using TWAIN scanning interface from 3rd party applications while NoTouch AutoScan is active

How to use TWAIN scanning interface from 3rd party application while NoTouch-AutoScan is active.
When NoTouch-AutoScan is active it will start scanning automatically each time a document is placed on the scanner tray. The exception is if the KS810-P scanner is already activated through another interface:

  1. If NoTouch-AutoScan is active but you start manually the "KeyScan Imaging" application, as long as this application is running NoTouch-AutoScan will not start automatically.
  2. If you run a 3rd party TWAIN compliant application and you start the scanning function from that 3rd party application selecting the KeyScan KS810-P TWAIN data source, once the KeyScan scanning interface is on and as long as you scan through the 3rd party application using the KeyScan TWAIN interface, NoTouch-AutoScan will not start.
