input from USB read only

Hi,

I need to take messages from a usb device and print it to the command line, in windows.
i.e program should be able to open the port take in the binary and convert it to hex and print it...
How do I do this?

The link I gave you does excatly what this code does, but explains what is really going on. The reason you're not getting this to compile is because you most likely do not have the Microsoft DDK. It is available for free, but not to download.

This smells like a homework question since your not looking to learn but to find code that compiles directly without knowing what it does.

The link you sent is just the functions, you would have to write your own main, to access these functions...that is also why it doesn't "compile"

This guy has code examples using MSVC++, VB6, C#, and links on how to do this under Linux

what do you mean by more basic? a high level overview of how it works? he's got fully functional code so its in the source if you want to modify for your needs....

Is this under windows and what compiler are you using, if your using something other then MSVC++ it shouldn't be to hard to get it working on something like Borland C++, Turbo, lcc-win, mingw, etc...

I need somethink more simplified- I have found a like with some some code but cannot get it to compile,

Could somebody please take a look @ this code,

I think this does or is supposed to do what I need to do but I cannot get it working with VC++ 6 , it should be straight forward to a good programmer ...

Thanks

I am looking to learn but I was looking for simplistic code as this would make it easier for me,

If I can't download the DDK then how do I get my hands on it?

You have to order it, pay $15 to get it sent to you, Microsoft's S/H as they call it
