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
