Q: Accessing parallel port with Delphi 1 under NT

Hallo,

I want to give Signals to the parallel Port with Delphi 1.0 under NT
4.0. It does not work.

I fond, that there is a not very well documented command/variable
port[$378] or portW[$..], that works with Win 3.11.

Is there a way with NT ?

Thanks in advance, Andreas

Andreas,

NT will eat all of your direct port access commands (port, etc...) The only
way to talk direct to memory locations in NT is via a device driver. Checkout
