vrf Parallel Port using DriverX - Using Logix4u Inpout32

Hi Paul,
Yes, the ActiveX control is very good & easy.  The only reason why I don't
use it is because I want all the PCs on the network to have access to a
function I have written.  In the case of the ActiveX control, this means
installing on each machine.  Using a .dll which resides on the network
means that no install is required.

Regards

Dave

Have any of your staff used the ActiveX Control?

It looks like you only have to inform VEE about the control to put it on
the list, check it to activate it, and then just use the correct input and
output calls.

It looks too good to be true.  What am I missing?

Hi,
Many people here have used Inpout32.dll.  The main advantage is that it
automatically installs and runs a driver that allows reading and writing to
the parallel port, where WinNT, 2k, XP would normally block such things.
You must have admin privaleges the first time you use it (so the driver can
get installed), but after that, it seems to run seamlessly.
Here is the link:

Hi All,

I want to do some bit pushing (reading and writing) on a Parallel Port
under Win XP.

I have saved and read most of the postings from the past 2 years and have a
separate archive put aside for parallel ports.  I see no mention of the
DriverX package from Tetradyne software though.  Since I already have a
license for this,  I would like to use it with VEE 6.x but I do not have
the time to learn all the ins and outs in a proper manner.

Anyone got examples or advice that they don't mind sharing.

Thanks!

Paul
