Please pardon the cross post to CQ-Contest and WriteLog but I need this
info ASAP and I don't recall which list I saw the initial post on.
A few weeks ago someone posted a list of drivers available that will allow
direct access to your hardware when running WinXP. I believe it was a
program that ran in the background that enabled your other programs to make
direct hardware calls like they can in Win9x and WinMe etc.--------Any
bells ringing out there?
I had set that email aside in a text file but before I had the chance to
voluntarily change OS's--my PC HD crashed and took out a large gouge of the
surface of at least one wafer. So I am the sudden owner of an XP equipped
machine. My main problem is I have a contest keyer that requires that
direct hardware access in Win9x type OS. A few other issues were fixed by
updated drivers but the only fix for this is to access the hardware
directly. The box has a collection of ports on it that will not appear
under WinXP like they did with Win98 2nd Edition.
Please, if you know the program I am trying to describe---re-post it or
email me directly. I would really appreciate it, and I bet some others out
there cud use the info as well.
