I'm doing this using the "Inpout32.dll" library to make the communication between VB.NET and the port..

VS 2010 Writing To Parallel Port / Windows 7 64-bit

Mar 11, 2011

Does anyone have experience writing data to the parallel port (printer port) in Windows 7 64-bit. I have been trying inpout32.dll, inpoutx64.dll and following all the info on and but can't get anything to work. I have an on-board parallel port at &H378 - not an add-on card - and have tried various modes in the BIOS (standard, ECP etc). I have a background in electronics so I am confident my testing methods are sound; I just cannot get a data bit to change state under program control. I need to send data to an 8-bit port on some 20th Century electronics so serial/USB interfaces are not really an option. There must be a way to control those 8 data bits in Windows 7, mustn't there?

Writing A String To LPT1, The Parallel Port?

Dec 18, 2011

I have a fairly old radio receiver. (Icom R70) A friend and I have built an interface to control it from my computer. The interface is parallel. For me the interface is a black box. (My friend is the electronics specialist)In the description (25 years or more old) the statement to set a frequency and receive mode (like Am, FM etc) on the receiver is:print ".0:087330"

Today I am working in VB.Net and on Windows7 pro. I have already spent several days figuring out how to do this, but can't get it to work.I have found inpout.dll, but that does only allows me to write one byte at the time, and if I break up the above string and send nine individual characters, it does not work.

I can get it to read the state of the input on mouse click but i need it to display the time in micro seconds when the input changes. i will then use the times from the two sensors to work out the time it took between both sensor changing.

.net - Which Version Of Visual Studio 2010 Contains Visual Basic SharePoint Templates

Aug 5, 2011

Does anybody know which version of Visual Studio 2010 contains the full set of Visual Basic SharePoint Templates? I am about to embark on a project to create Visual Web Parts to be used in a SharePoint report.

At the moment I am using Visual Studio 2008 and even though the WSPBuilder is installed none of the relevant SharePoint templates are present.Having searched SO and the web, most advise to install the templates via the Visual Studio command prompt: devenv /installvstemplates

Alas the Visual Studio command prompt is also missing from my VS2008 installation.So, the question remains: which version of VS2010 contains what I need for pain-free SharePoint development? There is a rather large price different between VS2010 Professional and VS2010 Premium, so can anyone tell me if the cheaper version (VS2010 Professional) contains all the Sharepoint templates?
