parport.sys

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Drivers' started by howardeverhart, Apr 18, 2005.

  1. Does anyone have some sample app code that uses parport.sys that they can
    share. Any code will do VB, V , Delphi, etc.

    What are you actually hoping to do? You don't generally talk to
    parport.sys directly. It just happens to be one of the drivers in the
    stack when you talk to a device on a parallel port. For example, when you
    do a CreateFile for "LPT1:", you are talking to parport.sys.

  3. Tim,
    Thanks for responding. I'm past the Createfile part. That's common for all
    sys drivers. What I'm hoping to find is code that shows how to use
    DeviveIOControl calls to get port info, configure the port, register
    callbacks and eventually input and output data to the port. I may be dense
    but I'm finding the MS docs confusing. I'm trying to replace an NT style
    driver that I wrote with the MS supplied driver because mine does not handle
    PNP ports directly and I don't want to spend the time to update it to WDM
    standards. Although I'm beginning to think the later may be faster.
