Accessing parallel port (including Win NT)

moonrise asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-04
I need read signals that I will send to the parallel port. I have read that this is not so easy with Windows NT because one cannot simply read certain addresses like Windows 98. Any suggestions as to how this can be done. I prefer not to have to use external DLLs.
