LPT port tutorial for C# and C++ in Visual Studio 2015 is needed for Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to program the LPT port from C# and C++ code, but I need tutorial for this.

    OS: Windows 10.

    framework: Visual Studio 2015.

    *********************************** Motherboard LPT port ***********************************

    8 LED's are connected to the LPT port's data bits trough resistors. I need such a homepage / PDF documentation which describes how to access the LPT port from C# and C++ under Windows 10, Visual Studio 2015. How to read and write bytes to the data input/output ports. The are two other registers, not just the data register. The STATUS and CONTROL registers, which I also want to use.

    There is a question with my motherboard BIOS settings: What setting I need to choose in the BIOS for the LPT port:

    Standard Parallel Port
    EPP Mode
    ECP Mode
    EPP Mode & ECP mode

    *********************************** USB-> LPT cable ***********************************

    Exist a cable which called USB- > LPT cable. I also want to use this cable as an LPT port in C# and C++ code under Windows 10. My question is: how?

    Some info about my cable:
