There is NO simple solution in WinXP because the operating system blocks user access to I/O ports. Borland apparently acknowledged that problem, and removed I/O functions from their compiler.

See the replies to your other thread. You need to install and use a special device driver:


Also search this forum (or Google) for many similar discussions about parallel port I/O.

Go to beyondlogic.org and download portTalk.
This will allow you to easily write to any port on the pc.
