I have just purchased and downloaded the Barcode Writer SDK.
I have installed, referenced and registered DLL.
I am trying to create a barcode using the exact code from the online documentation:
Code: Select all
' create the barcode writer Dim barcodeWriter As New BarcodeWriter() ' set barcode writer settings barcodeWriter.Settings.Barcode = BarcodeType.Code128 barcodeWriter.Settings.Value = "012345abcde" ' get a barcode image Dim image As Image = barcodeWriter.GetBarcodeAsBitmap() ' save the barcode image to a file image.Save("imageWihBarcode.png")
"The input is not a valid Base-64 string as it contains a non-base 64 character, more than two padding characters, or an illegal character among the padding characters."
Can anyone help with this?
Thanks in advance.
