Subject=Parallel Port Communications

Hello all,

I use I/O ActiveX with WindowsNT4.0 to control external hardware.
I need to set the /STROBE pin.
The function

DeviceControl(Command, Data, Buffer) WinNT Only

        Command. Specifies the command.

            ASSERT_PAR_CONTROL (1441800) Assert parallel port control signal(s).

        Data. Specifies data that the command uses.

            PARALLEL_INIT (1)
            PARALLEL_AUTOFEED (2)

seems to access only /INIT and /AUTOFEED, but not /STROBE.

Is there any other way to set/reset /STROBE ?

Any fast help will be appreciated.
Yours sincerely

André Lehmann
