Access Hardware from DOS Program

Posted on 2000-03-13

I have a DOS program which I would like to run from NT. It uses an adaptec SCSI
card which would have required ASPI8DOS.SYS driver on an MS-DOS system.

If I add ASPI8DOS.SYS to CONFIG.NT before running the program, Windows
fails to find the installed SCSI card. I assume that this is because NT does not
allow direct access to hardware.

Is it possible to modify my DOS program (written in Turbo C++) to access the
SCSI card from NT MS-DOS mode? For example, is it possible somehow to
access the windows drivers for the SCSI card?

Thanks!!

you'd have to have the Adaptec SCSI card SDK which probably isn't available publicly, but i'd ask Adaptec.
