I have a stepper motor control board from Eggert Electrics which interactively operates steppers using QB at the DOS level (Print #1, ... ). Of course I have to run QB in DOS and am looking for a way to run the code under Windows.
Is FB able to control serial ports while running under XP? or do I need some sort of serial port dll control? Windows took away direct access to ports and that caused a lot of hassles.
Hopefully you will tell me that it is a piece of cake in FB!
