Yes - that's what i mean.
We only need the possibility to access the I/O ports in NT+ emulations.

It seems that most of the applications are using this free driver:

And in LCDHype this two functions are used:

    IN ULONG Port

    IN ULONG Port,
    IN UCHAR Value

Here we only need a workaround to implement this two access methods.
With this driver or with an own one. Or with a workaround.
Is it possible to get direct access to /dev/lp0 in wine in NT+ emulations?

Of course i understand that it is to much work to implement this I/O kernel stuff for only some applications who need this.
But on the other hand I/O access in wine is only possible for applications which are designed below NT+ now. That's really not the standard 2010.
And the question is which applications are interesting to run in wine?
