It is a Good Start!
(Mental Block I had, not looking for 'Modems' in the first place!), as you know, that's how it goes.
However, it covers, apart from a sprinkling of C or CPP, a Lot of CE, C#, etc, which have their own libraries, etc, and hence are instructive, but not very useful. For Instance, "Phone.Lib" is not a component of MFC42.
All I need to do is the Dialling, and the Channelling of the connection to the Sound System, and hanging up, after ending the call.
I'm going to try for now something called "RasDial.exe" and see how I get on with it. Hopefully I can fool it in not looking for a Phonebook Entry, or stopping it from trying to make an Internet Connection.
I have also bought a £6.00 USB Dialup Modem which comes with a CD. Hopefully the CD contains something useful. I live in hope. Even if it fails, the cost is less than a packet of cigs, and, I still have the Modem.
Hope if all else fails to be able to hang a Head Set and Mike to the 'Phone' Output, and, hope the Modem can do the Dialling via the Line Socket.
May need to set to Pulse, and a switch to isolate the head set, (I know how POTS works) but, for now hope we can make it work without having to resort to this.
Worth Six Pound to try it, though, even if it does not work!
Thanks, and, I'll keep you Posted, but, remember, I'm on my own, and have to resolve many issues, all by myself. If I get an Intractable Problem in One Place, I put it aside, for dealing with, and whilst waiting, tackle something else. That keeps the entire front moving.
Kind Regards,and thanks again
