Test 2 programs for a serial or parallel port

Post by burger2227 »

I made some programs to monitor the serial and parallel ports.
The problem is that I want to try to get some input from people that have devices on them. Whether they be something they made or a normal device to see how the programs perform.

Eventually I want to be able to get QB to be able to work in XP and be able to use printers that will not run with LPRINT. Of course I am using PortTalk to defeat the XP dos block.

The programs are free to try. Need to find some people that want to test them on different systems. If you don't use the serial port then the program does nothing because it is empty.
The parallel port program can tell if the port is reversable and has EPP capabilities.

Thanks all,
