Solution 1

Don't post this under Quick Answers - if you got the code from an article, then there is a "new message" button at the bottom of that article, which causes an email to be sent to the author. They are then alerted that you wish to speak to them.
Posting this here relies on them "dropping by" and realising it is for them.

Are you sure that the adaptor you are using is a LPT port, PCI cards 'tend' to be I have come across a couple which say they are drive a printer fine but won't do anything else! Also it is worth checking which version of Windows you are using and make sure your dll/method works (I have had trouble with XP home and Pro in the past! It worked at home on home didn't work at work on Pro, recompiled worked fine?!). I take it you are using I/O Ports Uncensored - 1 - Controlling LEDs (Light Emiting Diodes) with Parallel Port[^]
I have run it and it does work the problem might well be to do with the version of the inpout dll and your version of Windows, have a look at[^] for a more upto date version.
Sorry thats about as much help as I can be!

Umm, I am little busy at the moment for this sort of thing try and ask a question on the Small Machines Forum and or get a copy of Parallel port Complete!
