PLIN Visual Basic 6 code

Post by Robins » Fri 11. Oct 2019, 19:25

I have a legacy system, that is programmed in VB6, that now needs to talk to a Peak USB_LIN device.
Has anyone created a module for this?
Any ideas on how to make it happen?

We have been using VB6 to talk to the PCAN hardware for many years, but not sure where to start with this.

we do not offer a VB6 include file for the PCAN-LIN API. But you could try to convert the VB.Net header to a VB6 header to use the the API. Keep in mind that VB6 is from 1998 and no longer supported since many years.

I realize that it's no longer supported, however I have we have dozens of VB6 based testers that won't be easily converted, so I have to find a way to speak LIN using VB6, if possible. I'm hoping someone out there has already figured it out. Thanks!

If you have the VB6 knowledge, you could try to build your own VB6 *.bas fiel for use the PLIN API DLL.
