How to activate the parallel port with "Windows 7" 32-bit and 64-bit?


I am doing a manual parallel port with Windows XP you can see below with source code included. ... ralelo-lpt

For now it is in Spanish, when you just do it in English.

I have heard that the inpout32.dll 32 and 64-bit parallel port does not work with Windows 7.

Is it possible to activate it?

I want to complete the manual also with Windows 7. (In the future Linux included).

Thanks for your time.

En spanish

Estoy haciendo un manual del puerto paralelo con Windows XP que puedes ver aquí abajo con código fuente incluido. ... ralelo-lpt

Por ahora es en español, cuando acabe lo hago en Inglés.

Me he enterado que con el inpout32.dll de 32 y 64 bits no funciona el puerto paralelo con Windows 7.

¿Existe la posibilidad de activarlo?

Quiero completar el manual tambien con Windows 7. (En el futuro Linux incluido).

Gracias por tu tiempo.

As far as I am aware, my version of InpOut32 (and InpOutx64) works fine with Windows 7. It has signed drivers for full compatibility.

Make sure you get the latest version (v1.2.0.0) on my downloads page.

Operationally its the same as the orriginal version from Logix4U but I have added a few extra functions.
Make sure that when you first run your application, it has admin rights (or use the installdriver.exe provided), otherwise the driver will not be installed correctly.

Sorry but I dont speak spanish but from what I can tell, the information in those screen shots show no mention of my port of InpOut32 to x64 and Windows Vista/7. Give it a try - it should work fine.

Incidentally I have a simular relay board to your - that I made myself in college about 14 years ago - Ive never tried using it with InpOut! I use a Velleman USB board now ( ... &id=351346) now as its much more compatible with no special driers!

I will try the inpoutx64.dll in Windows 7 and Visual C # 2010 Express.

Thanks for the help friend.
