interfacing a usb driver with VB6
« on: July 20, 2010, 08:10:15 am »
I need to be able to interface a wallplate my company is putting together as a USB bulk storage.  This is to make the configuration files I build in VB6 load quicker than using a Serial Comm port.  My problem is I know what I'm supposed to be sending but I don't know how to setup the data.

Has anyone setup structures for usb using VB6? If so can I get some help.

How the VB application communicates with the device depends on the firmware in the device. If you just want to use bulk transfers, a USB virtual COM port is an option, and you can access the device the same as any COM port. If you want to use mass storage, the application accesses the device as a drive.
