Direct memory accessing using vb 3


   I would like to know if it is possible to do direct memory accessing in vb 3. If the answer is yes? How do you do it. The reason I'm asking this question, is beacause I have an interface board that has a specific memory address and I need to read/write to the board.

thanks for your help

Since you are communicating with an interface board, your communications will be accomplished through a hardware port which you name it 'memory address'. This can be done using API calls but it is complex enough. You can use a dynamic link library 'DLL' such as the WINIO.DLL to easily accomplish this task. The DLL will enable you to read and write from/to any hardware port. The DLL is freeware and can be found on many web sites.
