If you have a web cam just download, install and follow the instructions for using bcwebcam.

Start bcWebCam, place the cursor in the target field of your application and hold the barcode in front of the camera. The barcode will be read automatically and the item number will be copied into the target field.
You save the type job and avoid mistakes.

Or you can purchase a USB infrared reader

I happen to have gotten a couple of Radio Shack Cue-cats when they were available a few years ago.

They still work great with some free infra-red software that is available. Still some on e-bay

I have created barcode in VB.NET and used this VB.NET barcode reader to read the barcode. That is a good barcode site, too. Share with you guys.
