I have just added a section to my web page about Controlling the LEDs under DOS and Windows. Included is a link to a .ZIP file with six programs I wrote -- on, off, and toggle for each LED. The .ZIP includes the (trivial) assembly language source and a 9 byte .COM file for each function. Many thanks to Roastbeef for doing the research to find out what port and bits control the LEDs.

I wrote a quick Win32 console app for turning the I-Opener's modem and e-mail lights on and off.

We converted the .com to .exe with a program called com2exe. Searched the web for com2exe on Altavista and it was the first or second link. We also used one called bat2com for the .bat we used to turn off the light and open our mail client. That one was a little harder to find.

(from the web page)
"To make the LED's work, we download the file from Fred M.'s web page. We then used a simple POP3 mail checker to check the account. We used CheckPOP which will allow a program to run if there is mail. Another file turns off the LED and launches Outlook Express. Works like a champ! You *will* have to convert the .com to .exe to allow another Windows app to call it."
