The documentation for InpOut32.dll says that it should work with NT+,
which is where your test program won't work. I suggested it because you
said you wanted to run LCDHype in the NT+ environment.
I know Linux but very little about Wine - the programs I need to run
with it are Win 95 programs that use a serial port and have 'just
worked' apart from two problems. USB-serial adapters don't work with
them, but a multi-port serial card fixed that. The programs needed to
access low memory, and adding "vm.mmap_min_addr = 0" to the end
of /etc/sysctl.conf fixed that too.
In particular, I haven't tried writing code to run under WINE. I think
you'll need to write a test program or two in order to work out how to
use that DLL. I may end up battling the parallel port soon since I need
to port a Win 95 CAD package over. It uses a parallel port security
dongle and can drive an HP plotter via a serial port.
