HI

Does this driver will allow me to use a MOTU PC MIDI Flyer interface with my parallel port on Windows 7 64?

Since i upgraded from XP 32 i wasn´t able to make it work (BSOD)?

What about the serial port and a MIDISPORT 8x8 interface?

Thanks

No idea. What is a MOTU PC MIDI Flyer?
EDIT: OK Google answered that... You would have to write your own interface code to control it with InpOut32 (which I suspect is not what you want to do?)

InpOut32 allows you to peek and poke values in port registers. If the device uses these then maybe it will work. If its on a parallel port then you can probably write code to communicate with it, so long as the parallel port is not a USB device and not an unsupported PCI device. Generally if the parallel port is on the motherboard it will work and if not, it work work - although some expansion cards do work (there are threads here with more info). The same applies to serial ports and any other ports.

Having said that why would you want to use InpOut32 to access the serial port - you have access to that anway through most programming languages. The only reason to do so though InpOut32 would be to set custom BAUD rates by hitting the registers directly.

Thanks,
