If you are getting errors related to the access to temporary folder like "Access to the path 'C:\Windows\TEMP\... is denied" then you need to add permission for this temporary folder to make ByteScout SDK working on that machine and IIS configuration because ByteScout SDK requires access to temp folder to cache some of its data for more efficient work. SOLUTION: If your IIS Application Pool has "Load User Profile" option enabled the IIS provides access to user's temp folder. Check user's temporary folder If you are running Web Application under an impersonated account or IIS_IUSRS group, IIS may redirect all requests into separate temp folder like "c:\temp\". In this case - check the User or User Group your web application is running under - then add permissions for this User or User Group to read and write into that temp folder (c:\temp or c:\windows\temp\ folder) - restart your web application and try again */ protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { } protected void btnImagePDFBarcodeToCSV_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { //Read Barcode Process Reader reader = new Reader(); reader.RegistrationKey = "demo"; reader.RegistrationName = "demo"; // Set Barcode type to find reader.BarcodeTypesToFind.All = true; // Output list List<CSVOutputFormat> lstCSVOutput = new List<CSVOutputFormat>(); // Get all files in folder, and iterate through each file var files = System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(Request.MapPath("~/BarcodeFiles")); foreach (var fileName in files) { // Read barcodes FoundBarcode[] barcodes = reader.ReadFrom(fileName); foreach (FoundBarcode code in barcodes) { lstCSVOutput.Add(new CSVOutputFormat { barcodeValue = code.Value, barcodeType = code.Type.ToString(), scanDateTime = DateTime.Now.ToString(), fileName = fileName }); } } // Set info text lblInfo.Text = string.Format("Total {0} barcode found in {1} file.", lstCSVOutput.Count, files.Length); // Export to CSV ExportToCsv(lstCSVOutput, Response); } /// <summary> /// Exports to CSV /// </summary> /// <param name="lstCSVOutput"></param> private static void ExportToCsv(List<CSVOutputFormat> lstCSVOutput, HttpResponse response) { System.Text.StringBuilder csvOutputContent = new System.Text.StringBuilder(string.Empty); csvOutputContent.Append("Barcode Value,Barcode Type,Scan DateTime,File Name"); foreach (var item in lstCSVOutput) { csvOutputContent.AppendFormat("\r\n{0},{1},{2},{3}", item.barcodeValue, item.barcodeType, item.scanDateTime, item.fileName); } // Perform download of file response.Clear(); response.ClearHeaders(); response.AppendHeader("Content-Length", csvOutputContent.Length.ToString()); response.ContentType = "text/csv"; response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=\"output.csv\""); response.Write(csvOutputContent.ToString()); response.End(); } } class CSVOutputFormat { public string barcodeValue { get; set; } public string barcodeType { get; set; } public string scanDateTime { get; set; } public string fileName { get; set; } } }
