I'm accessing the parallel port with ReadFile() and WriteFile(). Do anybody know how to access the output pins 14, 16, 17 (Auto Feed, Initialize, Select Input) without writing a vxd - Just trought the existing lpt.vxd?

On W95 you can directly write to base_adr+2 to access the control port.
On WinNT you can use the DirectNT driver to access the hardware directly.
The DirectNT/DirectIO driver can be found at ftp://ftp.heise.de/pub/ct/listings/ct9701.zip

Thanx, but can you please give me a code example? Or how can I get this base_adr? I only get a handle after CreateFile() with LPT(x)!
