All of the comments I've found (with my Google search that you should have made) indicate that application level programs under 32-bit windows (aka Win32) cannot directly access the I/O ports.

The primary suggestion appears to be that if you really need that level of access to the hardware you will need to write a driver to support it. There was also a mention of some sample code included in the Windows DDK.

I have no personal experience in that area, good luck.

Which is older - you or your compiler?

I'm figuring you're using some fossil like TurboC.

The answer is to "get with the times", and use a compiler which is actually compatible with your OS, and not something which is half-heartedly supported for backward compatibility.
