Portable Computers accessing the Battery Meter

Question asked by VRFuser on Jan 1, 1997

Happy New Year to everyone.

A small problem but one that I believe someone out there can overcome for me.

I am using a portable pc (Panasonic CF62), together with a PCMCIA GPIB card, Win95 and VEE 3.21.

My pc is accessing a number of instruments and is being used unattended.

My problem is how can I get HP VEE to access the battery meter that is on the system tray to tell me when the mains power has been lost and warn the operators, via the soundcard and external speakers.

I believe that the driver being used is powercfg.dll but am not 100% sure.

Does anybody have any ideas?

Many thanks
