Hello,

I am a Brasilian student and I Would like to control a usb/parallel converter in Visual Basic 6.0. My problem is: I can't control using "inpout32.dll". This dll is only for internal parallel port. What dll should I use to control a usb/parallel converter? Jan, do you have one example in Visual Basic 6.0?
 
Thank you very much
Felipe-Brazil

All of the USB/parallel adapters I'm aware of are designed to work only with printers.

You could give this a try:

If you just want to do some I/O, the development boards here are another option:
