    HID interface

    Hey everyone, I had this problem and I'm not sure where to start, I want to create a Visual C++ program to interface with an HID (Logitech Wingman Formula GP Wheel & Pedals), I need the program to understand the ouput of the device, make some manipulations to it then send it through an 802.11g network, I need it to be as real-time as possible. The problem is that I'm not sure where to start or what thing to read exactly, all the articles I found when searching online had to do with creating an HID driver, not reading the output of one. Any help in how to do it or where to get that info would be much appreciated

    I'm not sure if either of these will be helpful.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    I checked this site before, it's helpful but the prob is that I'm not very good in Visual C++ programming so I was hoping for something more detailed. Actually if anyone can give me a link to a good VC++ ebook along with any more detailed info about the HID subject I'd be grateful

    Well, down the page a ways there was this.

    It's been a quite while -- and I was on the other end of the pipe -- but I thought that from Windows side it was mostly ReadFile, WriteFile, etc. to send/receive the reports.

    Have you tried DirectInput or even the old joystick API?
