I Want to handle an interrupt that is generated by an external circuit that is interfaced through ISA bus to the PC.
How to sense the interrupt which comes from ISA bus in my Windows program?
Is There any function available in vc that is equivalent to _dos_getvect() in c++?

Thanks in advance..

Under Windows the interrupts are the province of the VxD world.  If you do not register your usage of the interrupt in the normal VxD way, it can be 'reused' by Windows for another peripheral with programmable IRQ.

If you're not already a member, join MSDN (http://www.microsoft.com/msdn) and examine the samples in the Windows 95 DDK (Device Driver Kit).

Of course, polling your board might suddenly seem terribly attractive.... :)
