WIA 2.0 Item Category GUIDs

Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) 2.0 items are grouped into categories that define how a IWiaItem2 is to be treated or used. For example, if the item represents a feeder, then the application should expect it to contain the required document feeder properties and operate like a document feeder. If the item represents a finished file, then a WIA 2.0 application should treat it that way, assuming that the data is static and located on the device. (The rules for each item will be defined in their individual specification documents.) Each category has a GUID type constant.
