PC Parallel Port Timer1 V1.1a

    Blog entry posted in 'General Purpose Circuits.', July 11, 2010.

    PC Parallel Port Timer1 V1.1a

    The program controls the PC parallel port pins 2 thru 8.
    The high/low control for each pin is set manually or by using the inbuilt RTC timer.

    The ParaTimer1.exe requires the Visual Basic 5 runtime files to be installed in the Windows/System folder.
    These runtime files are free web downloads.

    Unzip the file and install the DLL's in the Windows/System folder.

    EDITED: 27th May 2011
    Main folder rezipped and reposted, now ParaTimer1a.zip
    Includes the VB5 Source File and *.exe.

    EDIT: 8thDec2011

    Added: DllPort.dll to zip2

    Awesome work Eric, thank you for sharing! I see you use Visual Basic for programing, like me. I've been using a small code written by Josh Gaby, that allows you to control pins 2 to 9 (as usual) but also controls pins 14 and 16 too!! (10 pins in total). I hope you find it useful to improve even more your work [url=http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb/scripts/ShowCode.asp?txtCodeId=56967&lngWId=1]Parallel Port Controller by Synaptic Parsifal[/url]

    Thanks for the effort, Eric. I cannot open the ZIP file. I tried downloading and extracting using both WinZIPand WinRAR, two times. Anyone else having this problem? Any comments or suggestions? Later. kenjj

    Nice work. Will you offer the source code?

    Very Nice program.. I am looking for a simple Batch File Script that will turn ON (for about 1 second) pin #2 (D0) and then turn back OFF using the parallel port. I will then run script using a Windows Task Scheduler (JIT Scheduler) for certain days during the month. Thanks for any help!
