Hi,

I want to write data to the ps/2 port to control a switchbox (for mice). What can I do? Is there any C++ library/class which I can use?

That sounds like something that you will need the DDK for.

The DDK is probably the answer but the question is not clear so I cannot give a clear answer.

I want to write data to the ps/2 port. Is it possible to use the logitech mouse driver to send data to the mouse? Or have I to write s new driver with DDK? I use Windows NT and Visual C++.

I am not an expert but I think it is nearly certain that you will need to do a driver. There are a few ports such as the serial and parallel ports you might be able to write to for Windows 95/98 but if you need a solution for 32-bit Windows NT then it is nearly certain you will need to do a driver. About the only possibility would be to study the DDK documentation and see if the mouse driver has interfaces you can use using IOCTL or something else.

You might look for a news group or something like that for DDK programmers. They might help.

I am sorry but that is probably all I can say. You can delete this question if you wish I do not need points.

Thank you.
