    I would also like to talk directly to printer ports on Windows 8.1 (and Windows/10) preview 64-bit without having to pay to licence code...

    Actually I have now found a DLL that claims to do it:-

    will have to give it a whirl...

    What OS are you wanting to use?

    Hi Dave,

    Yeah, there are several around, and they work great if you don't require any real throughput, and you can work in a polled mode rather than responding in a timely fashion to an interrupt, and then que responses in a buffer.

    TO do that properly, you need to be at Ring0 in Windows 7/8x/10, and that is going to require a IOCTL-based kernel mode driver (which I can point you to).

    The DLLs are all USER mode (Ring3 with boundary transitions), and can be adequate if you don't need the speed.

    I did recently find one app that needs the speed. It loads programs into the "Baby" valve computer Replica and it can be found some where on here:-

    http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/CCS/SSEM/vol...s/archive.html

    basically it needs to set a bit every 10us and it fails under emulation, so I would expect it to fail with the DLLs. The code in use has some assembler embedded in Turbo Pascal....
    ... I think I will probably build an Arduino replacement, if that will go fast enough, with an SD card reader so we don't end up transferring data on floppy.

    I guess bottom line is this isn't a place to LEARN programming, or probably even to get support for code, unless its really vintage. As you mention System32 I guess you are coding for windows devolved from the NT kernel, so 2000,XP,Vista,7,8,8.1 or even Technical Preview...
    .... I would start with the support forum for whatever tool you have chosen. If its the free Microsoft tools, either the Express or Community editions, then start with MSDN

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/

    if its GCC via MINGW then there are some resources listed here:-

    http://www.mingw.org/wiki/Ask_for_help

    If that doesn't help then this Microsoft article, which is my favourite

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/555375

    contains information on how to find support for Microsoft and Non-Microsoft products. If you want help read it carefully...

    Well the OP hasn't checked in yet after his initial request, so perhaps he's found his answer elsewhere.

    Yeah, doesn't much sound like a "Vintage" problem here, so my suggestion would be to heed the support advice above, and then head over to a general electronics/programming forum that will be better suited to help you with what you want to do.

    good luck-gwk

    In which language you want to learn programming for electronic circuits i will help you to communicate with printer port and give you some knowledge about it
