Release Contents

The bitmap acquisition software is separated into two releases: one for the client side and one for the server side.

The Client Side

The software on the client side would normally be installed on each engineer's desktop or laptop together with a .NET application. We have written a very simple command line based .NET application that shows how one would integrate with the Artwork layout viewer.

Under the default installation directory: C:\WCAD\BitmapAcquisitionClient one finds the following files and directories:
