Hi

I want to make a VB DLL which will interogate parallel port and tell wheather that particular Dongle is installed. I am planning to set up a DONGLE production unit and need software support.

Any one having any source code or 3rd party links in VB or VC?

This question will give you 150 points. Wanna go for it?

Your best bet would probably bet pick up a copy of the book Parallel Port Complete which details working VB.


http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0965081915/002-2792134-8930462

the website for the book is also quite good:

Hi

The LOCKSMITH.com is good. But does not have a free version or any sort of source code or any sort of manual for detecting the DINKEY's DONGLE.

Please send in sites or source coding matching my demand

Bye.
