    It will all depend on how the specific device works. Get one that can give output over RS-232 and VB can handle it.

    Every embedded device like that works in a specific way, there is no standard. You have to read the data sheet of the device you have selected.

    As for collecting info from RS-232 / the COM ports through VB6: check the documentation for "common controls".

    thats the dll file right?
    If your talking about the documentation, i read the manual of the device. It only showed me how to install the free software and yes a guide for installing the device.the problem is, we tried using some free biometric programs n the net but they dont read the device. what seems to be the problem?


    thanks for reading this im really sorry if I am a noob at this thing.
