ZD Soft Screen Recorder SDK Quick Start

Getting started quickly with ZD Soft Screen Recorder SDK in Visual Basic.NET


  1. Download and unzip the SDK package to a temporary directory, e.g.
    C:\Temp\ScnLib
  2. Copy the SDK's dynamic link libraries to your project's .exe folder:

    copy the file and the folder
    C:\Temp\ScnLib\bin\x86\ScnLib.dll
    C:\Temp\ScnLib\bin\x86\ScnLib.DLLs
    to
    D:\Projects\WindowsApplication1\WindowsApplication1\bin\Debug\
    IMPORTANT: you need to copy the entire folder ScnLib.DLLs (not only the files in it) to your project's .exe folder, and DO NOT change the folder name.

  3. Copy the SDK's API definition file to your project's source files folder:

    copy the file
    C:\Temp\ScnLib\include\ScnLib.vb
    to
    D:\Projects\WindowsApplication1\WindowsApplication1\
  4. Open your solution in Microsoft Visual Studio, right-click your project name in the Solution Explorer, point to Add group in the context menu, click Existing Item... in the sub-menu, browse to
    D:\Projects\WindowsApplication1\WindowsApplication1\
    select ScnLib.vb and then click the Add button to add it to your project.

  5. In a proper place of your source code, initialize the SDK and then start your first recording:
    ZDSoft.SDK.ScnLib_Initialize() ZDSoft.SDK.ScnLib_SetVideoPathW("C:\Hello\World.mp4") ZDSoft.SDK.ScnLib_StartRecording()
  6. A while later, stop the recording and then uninitialize the SDK:
    ZDSoft.SDK.ScnLib_StopRecording() ZDSoft.SDK.ScnLib_Uninitialize()
