I need to communicate with a device through a parallel port. My project involves a stepper motor, an optical gate, and an ADC with an I^2C serial interface. I want to hook this up to my laptop through the COM port, and I have all the necessary hardware, all I'm lacking is the software. I tried writing some code in VB a while back, in the very beginning of the project, but I ran into some stuff I couldnt understand at all, and abandoned all hope. Can anyone point me in the direction where I can start looking for information? VB is most favorable to me, Im more familiar with it that any other language. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
