Nope, that's not it.  I can drag-and-drop onto the executable
in exactly the same way I can onto a desktop shortcut.  Odd.

Can you invoke it directly (from a command window)?  Typing

  "ScanTags <path-to-image-file>"

should get you the same results as dropping an image onto it.

(As another poster has noted, you may need the VS2005 runtimes)
