You can use assembler for that......
//Read from port
function ReadPortB( wPort : Word ) : Byte;
begin
  asm
    mov dx, wPort
    in al, dx
    mov result, al
   end;
end;
//Write to port
procedure WritePortB( wPort : Word; bValue : Byte );
begin
  asm
    mov dx, wPort
    mov al, bValue
    out dx, al
  end;
end;

Hi,
Viktor's solution will only work in Win95/Win311. Not in NT and I don't know about Win98.
The best way to solve all your questions is either to, write a kernel mode driver or, use a generic kernel mode driver such as WinRT.
