Hi there.
Are you talking about communicating through an rs-232 on vb?
I have to do the same thing. Have you found anything? and if you have could you help me?

Greetings (all)
I too am trying to control hardware via para port this time using WinNT. I have several instruments operating using the para port to control a 24bit AD and a 12 bit microstepping motor driver. All this is fine under DOS (or in my case OS2).

However time to upgrade to NT and life is a lot harder.

I think I need a 3rd party DLL or driver. I need to service the para pot interrupt within 2ms.

Any ideas as to who to ask or where to look?

please 'mail [email protected]
Kind regards

Dear deepak;
I am electronic engineering final year degree student. I am doing final year project about the wireless traffic light monitoring system using VB 6. Do you have any idea or solution on how to interface the wireless signal (using remote
control for car) to the parallel port of computer using Visual Basic 6 ?
