I’m trying to find out if either VB6 or Delphi could be used to make a simple dialer for Windows XP. A dialer my friend made in VB5 works on NT, but not on XP. By a simple dialer, I mean one that I can use to read a single telephone number entry database created with Qbasic and dial that number over the XP modem. (Note, this is NOT an Internet dial-up connection, which is so often associated with the tem “dialer).
I have a Qbasic program that can be used to select a phone number and send it to a database. I need either a VB6 solution or Delphi solution to dial it. Any ideas, books, links, source code, etc., would be appreciated?
