and sending a error messge illegal memory access unable to continue.
I have read that the later software packages all fail under NT because they have a cutout that prevents access to ports.

Is there a software library I can add to my C compiler library to allow me to access the port LPT1.

I need a plugin one as an #include < > format because I am  hardware man not a software person.

HELP I`m tearing my hair out with a GNU C/C++ IDE which works fine in its own way.
