but VB3 can. I think with VB4 I'd created an interface
through VC to load
the routine(s) but that's a clunky way of doing it. You might give VB3 a
shot, depending on which version of Windows you're going to be using.

Which version of Visual Basic will allow me to call this driver?
Doug, you should be able to use VB6 for that - you can call a DLL from
just about any programming language on Windows. Does it give you any
example code to work with? Is there a scan of the manual available?
If you're not familiar with VB, I'd be happy to help you get it sorted.
