I have an Access executable that was written by a company out of business for several years.? It uses a serial key device on the parallel printer port to allow access.? I had 3 devices when the company went out of business and 2 have died and I am down to 1 device that works.? What I need is someone to dissassemble the code, locate the one or more sub-routines that handle the port read, and either jump around them or skip them altogether.?
This program is a billing program for a small paging carrier and with the pressure of cellular phones we are not interested in buying, upgrading and moving our data to a new system as this would cost more than just closing the doors.? We do have obligations to our existing customer base and need to continue as long as possible without incurring any large expense to do so.
I can provide all the files that go with the program and a small easily transferred database to test.? I can't give up the last serial device I have as that would shut our system down, therfore any testing needed with the device in place would have to be done via remote desktop to our server.? I don't think that would be required, but it is available.
