Hi... I have an app using the _inp & _outp to communicate with an ISA card. I now want to redo this program so that it will run under windows NT. _inp & _outp do not work with NT. Any ideas?

Under windows NT only a device driver can do port I/O.  You must either find an existing device driver for the card (from the manufacterer maybe) or you must write your own device driver.  In either case your program will have to communicate with the device driver to do the I/O.

Sorry, but the only way to communicate with hardware on NT is using a kernel mode device driver...
