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?
