VB does not have a control that communicate to the parallel port similar to MSComm to serial port. There may be 3rd party control available.

Thanks Dalin.
I'm just fine, but running all the time. Too much work, many problems, etc.
The thesis is progressing but really slowly.
I am in Thessaloniki, Greece, but originally from Baghdad, Iraq. You know Baghdad for sure :-)
My best regards Dalin and keep the good work.
My regards to you pandav too.
