Twunk_16.exe Description :

Twain_32.dll Client's 16-bit Thunking Server. Phew! Let's jump straight away to layman terms ! First, TWAIN : TWAIN is originally derived from "Technology Without An Important Name". TWAIN, or as it is most commonly know, the TWAIN Driver, is a program that is packaged with all scanners and which allows the user to scan images or text directly from the scanner into the application that will be used to manipulate the image or text. Thus, most graphics programs, and many of the newer Microsoft Office programs, enable you to scan a document directly into the program. Without the TWAIN driver a user would have to always use a scanner specific software program, save the image to a folder, and then pick up the image from within the application that it was intended to be used in in the first place. The TWAIN driver has two parts to it : the 16-bit driver which interfaces with 16-bit applications and scanner driving programs (older generation software from the Windows 95/98 days), and the 32-bit driver which interfaces with more modern applications and scanner driving programs. The two drivers are needed at all times because you could have a 32-bit program on one side of the driver, e.g. Microsoft PowerPoint 2002, and a 16-bit program on the other side of the TWAIN driver, e.g. the scanner driving program for an oldish scanner. With this in mind, when a 16-bit program starts the 16-bit portion of the TWAIN driver, TWUNK_16.EXE comes into action and its sole purpose is to start the 32-bit part of the TWAIN driver in case there should be some 32-bit scanner driving programs on your PC (to drive current generation scanners) so that the program you are about to use is aware of all possible scanners connected to your system, whether they are old or new generation scanners.
