We have an ASP.NET web project that uses an ActiveX component in order to scan documents using TWAIN drivers, and upload them to web server. This scanning is possible to do in-browser and this ActiveX object interacts with twain_32.dll.
My question is if this ActiveX object could be integrated to or be replaced by a Silverlight 5 component.
I know that Silverlight 4 allows a full-trust thing, but is restricted to out-of-browser applications, and we don't want this kind of applications. We are looking for in-browser applications. What we don't know is if Silverlight 5 can offer us this possibility with ActiveX or replace them.
