Developing for the SE3307 scanner

Hi

 

A friend of mine got a SE3307 scanner and wants me to develop a small application for it.

He basically wants it as a QR-code reader, which should be easy to achieve as it has a decoder already in it

 

I already looked at the documentation and the example applications.

I'm not able to compile the C++ example application using VS2010 or VS2012.

 

I don't care about VS if it doesn't run in it. The applications should be done in Qt and mingw anyway.

I'm not a good C++ programmer so I have a bit a problem where and how to start if not even the example application is running.

 

Is there a working version of it or am I doing something completely wrong?

Or do you have a small example code how to connect to the scanner and retrieve the data in C++?

 

Thanks in advance
