Can we use Dragon without drivers (except giveio)


Can we use Dragon without drivers (except giveio)

I am considering Dragon for an in-house application with just 16-bit I/O operations. No interrupts. Is it possible to use Dragon with just the GiveIO driver under XP? I will need 0x200-0x20f address range. Is it possible to "Reserve" this range so that if at all there is another PCI board, PNP will not use this range?

Also, I dont intend to use configuration space at all. Thinking along the code in Is that feasible? Basically trying to "Port" an old ISA board quick-and-dirty..

Yes, GiveIO is enough and works with the code shown.
You cannot reserve the IO range so you have to use a range that is known to be not in use by another board.
