I don't know the Minolta SW personally, but this is normal and correct
behaviour for TWAIN progs, you only usually run them inside a client
application. Some mfrs' provide a front-end which allows the TWAIN app to
function standalone as well. Personally I prefer standalone, but since you
have VS you seem to have all bases covered.
