Title: Help test the new Blacklink backend for TILP
Post by: JonimusPrime on March 19, 2013, 11:49:26 pm
So for the past few weeks I've been poking at a replacement for the dhahelper based BlackLink/$4Link used by TILP. This new backend uses the native Win32 Comm API to toggle and read the pins meaning no need for an external driver. This means no chance of BSOD's from dhahelper, at least for BlackLink's and $4 Links. Sadly this won't work for the Parallel link but I shall look into that next, though I have a feeling that we have about 0 windows users of it left.

To test here is what you need.

If you have all of the above here is what I'd like you to do.

Report your results in this thread including OS, cable type (Blacklink or $4Link), port type (on Motherboard, addon card, or USB adapter), and how well it seemed to work.

* The current beta of TILP is broken on XP so you can't really test, yet.
