I have written some VEE code that uses the inpout32.dll available at <A href="http://www.lvr.com/parport.htm">http://www.lvr.com/parport.htm</A> to communicate with my computer's parallel port. When I use it on a machine running Windows XP the program works ok, however on a machine running Windows 98 the computer freezes randomly (meaning that I can communicate sometimes but other times the computer freezes and I have to reboot).</FONT></DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT> </DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>    I don't know if it is a problem of the .dll (which is supposed to work under 98 and XP) or if its VEE related because I get no error message or anything like  that.</FONT></DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT> </DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>    I was hoping that some of you might give some answers or if there is another method that I can use to communicate with the parallel port.</FONT></DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT> </DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>    Thank you very much,</FONT></DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT> </DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>                                                                                    Ren Valenzuela</FONT></DIV>---<BR>You are currently subscribed to vrf as: rsb@soco.agilent.com<BR>To subscribe send a blank email to "join-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To unsubscribe send a blank email to "leave-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To send messages to this mailing list,  email "vrf@agilent.com".  <BR>If you need help with the mailing list send a message to "owner-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".</BODY></HTML>
