direct port access xp

Hello

I need accessing to send some commands to keyboard via keyb controller (BIOS port 60, 64...). Is there any way to direct port access in win xp? I'm using VC.

I don't know it w32 api can help, or if i need 3rd party apis... I have low experience using ports directly in XP (really nothing :D )


Thank u

There is a bunch of parallel port information on the following web page, including freeware and shareware drivers for WinXP and WinNT. You may be able to adapt some of it to your keyboard needs:

One of the shareware programs looks like it might work for your application:
