Rescan SCSI bus on NT 4.0
Posted on 1997-08-07
We are connecting a non standard scanner via SCSI to a PC using Windows NT 4.0.
We are not using a class driver, but deactivating the standard SCSISCAN device service and controlling the scanner directly by calling the API functions
CreateFile("\\\\.\\scsix:", ...) and
All works well with the restriction, that the scanner must be switched on while booting Windows NT.
How can we avoid this restriction ?
Is there an API function to rescan the SCSI bus when the System is running ?
We intend to rescan the SCSI bus after CreateFile() fails and then try it again.
Any hint is appreciated !!
