I think that your are using windows 95 or NT therefore the answer could be:
-In the same way that you do it under DOS by using the outp/inp function

Maybe you should have a look at the Win32 help file.  You can open communication resources using CreateFile and you can write to LPT this way. (CreateFile("LPT1:", ... or something))

You can access ports directly after getting there handle using CreateFile(). Then you can send data to this port just as to a regular file
