to get such an access under NT? I found Write to Parallel Port.vi but I can`t open it. The error that occurs is: resource not found, error occured while loading the vi, labview load error code 8: could not load vi ressources. This vi is from 1994. Maybe the source of trouble is that I`m using version 5.1.1 or it is a problem with NT. What do you think?
Whenever you get that error, it means you are not using the correct version of LabVIEW. Chances are your Write to Parallel Port.vi is from LabVIEW 5.0 or even 4.0 or lower. I got that same error when I tried to open a .vi from 6.0 in my LabVIEW 5.0. It seems like it would be backwards compatible, but you never know.... -- Charles Brian Quinn
