For Windows 95/98/NT/2000/Me/Xp
Inpout32.dll is compatible with my Win9x inpout32.dll (below) but works under all Windows editions from Win95/98/Me to WinNT/2000/XP. For Windows NT etc., a kernel mode device driver is embedded in the DLL in binary form. Freeware. A big thank you to LOGIX4U for coming up with this and making it available. For testing inpout32.dll in Visual Basic 6, see my example program Test_inpout32_vb6.zip. For testing inpout32.dll in Visual Basic .NET, see my example program Test_inpout32_vbdotnet.zip.
While this has nothing to do with Web scripting, it seems the best place.
I am trying to control stepper motors using a Visual Basic program. Since Visual Basic cannot access the parallel port, I have to use a DLL. So the questions are: Where can I get a DLL to access the parallel port and How can I use it in Visual Basic?
Any help is appreciated.
