How to deploy Dynamic Web TWAIN on your server (Windows/Linux/Unix/Mac)?

For server-side operating system, Dynamic Web TWAIN supports Windows, Linux, Unix, Mac, etc. Generally speaking, there is no restriction on the operating system. Deployment rules apply to all types of server machines.

To deploy Dynamic Web TWAIN on your server, you can simply copy your solution and put it on the server. If the Resources folder of Dynamic Web TWAIN is not included in your solution, please make sure you include it first and also be sure the paths to reference the JS files (such as dynamsoft.webtwain.initate.js and dynamsoft.webtwain.config.js) are correct in your code.

In most of our official samples, the Resources folder is already part of the sample. But just in case, you can find the Resources folder in the installation directory e.g.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dynamsoft\Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK {Version Number}

If you want to deploy a newer version of Dynamic Web TWAIN, please refer to:
