Im in the process of doing some basic stuff with connecting some LEDs and eventually motors to the parallel port on the computer. Right now I have not actually connected it do the computer, but plan to do so later today.
After doing some searching/googeling I found out that controlling the parallel port in XP is not as easy as I first thought. I could not find any good solutions to the problems, as most of the working programs was to linux/win98.
Does anyone know of a good tutorial on how control the parallel port in XP or know where I can find a decent but basic project to look at? Or am I better of formating my old laptop (going to use a old laptop I have in case I blow the motherboard or something stupid like that. Guess Im not the kind of electronic) to win98?
Thank you in advance.
