How to upgrade from version 5.x to the latest version

We changed the structure starting from Dynamsoft Barcode Reader 6.0, so it is recommended to review our sample code for reference and re-create your barcode reading module using the latest version of Dynamsoft Barcode Reader.

But if you are using .NET API (C#/VB.NET) and would like to upgrade the Dynamsoft Barcode Reader library without changing the code structure, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the wrapper here and unzip the file.

  2. In the Visual Studio, right click References in the Solution Explorer and add Dynamsoft.BarcodeV5.dll, Dynamsoft.BarcodeReader.dll (version 6) and Newtonsoft.Json.dll to the project.

  3. Change the old namespace:

     using Dynamsoft.Barcode;
    

    to:

     using Dynamsoft.BarcodeV5;
    
  4. Clean and re-build your solution.
