'I2C parallel port implementation under NT?'

Has anyone ever run across a parallel-port I2C implementation (mainly software) under NT?  The software for DOS works fine on DOS/Win9x, but the machine I need to talk I2C with runs only NT4.0...    Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks,

-Troy

I don't know what you are developing under, but anything short of a device
driver won't work for NT. That being said, there are a number of available
device driver implementations that allow what you are attempting below.

Do a search for TVICPORT and that should get you a driver but you'll have to
pay a small fee. Believe me however, this is much less than it would cost to
write it yourself. Not a trivial task under NT, unless you have a few months
to spare. Anyway, if your having problems finding it, drop me a line and
I'll email it to you.

You can't 'bit-bang' the port directly under NT, you need to use a
driver. My 32 bit PIC programmer does just this (thanks to Andrew
Jarman!), it uses a freeware port driver, there is a link to download
this from the software pages on my website.

I too am trying to implement an NT I2C. I used a dll from Vincent Himpe for
win95 and found that Windose 95 cannot run for days without it locking up,
under NT it can run for months with out a problem. Is there some VB5 code
that uses the DLPortIO.DLL? I am having a hard time figuring how to use the
routine in VB5.


What about USB is it capable of mimicking the I2C?

Thanks
Pete

DLPortIO.DLL comes with examples and interface routines, written in C
and VB (I don't know what version though!).

I don't know anything about USB, but I wouldn't have thought so.
