parallel port / NT 4.0 / Labview 5.0

How can I control the parallel port i/o pins with labview 5.0 and NT 4.0 ?
The sub.vi "out.port" doesn't work.

Thanks for any advice

Hallo, Andreas,

Du meintest am 03.11.99 zum Thema parallel port / NT 4.0 / Labview 5.0:

You need the file "hwaccess.*" from the NI ftp server.

Viele Gruesse!

I use a DLL that was written in CVI to control the parallel port. CVI
drivers for Inport and out port will work under windows NT. This is not a
fast solution but it does work.

Also a long time ago (In a galaxy far far away) there was a canned Import
and outport DLL that worked with LabVIEW under Windows NT on Nationals
Instruments web site. If you cannot find it, I could email you the dll I
wrote but it is designed to work with EPP printer ports.

Not so long ago, not so far away:

(or search the NI KnowledgeBase for "parallel and pins")

You should be able to use the VISA functions, with the parallel port
appearing as a serial port with an address greater than 10 (emphasis on
*should*). The VISA functions are great for serial communications although
they force you to do a little more programming.
