Here is a lengthy article on Serial/Parallel port programming in vb.net.

Have you contacted the equipment manufacturer to see if there is some API that you can use?

i have an api but its a vb6 application , i tried to decompile it , but unfortunately its a vb6 and BAS coding ... i want to develop a similar one throug vb.net

Does the application have non os libraries? For example: Something that was copied and registered when the application is installed?

Try adding the Dll file to your project and use intuition to decalare some instances of the possible classnames inside. If the vendor has no documentation it will be extremely slow, but none the less, it could be a viable option.

If the application is written in VB6 you might have to work with interopt.

dunno what to do if you want i can give the exe file and the dll to check them

After a quick google session I found a piece of software that claims to expose the functions in a dll.

See if this might help you in any way.

Beware! I did not download this software or try it. It could be legit or could be scam.
