In teory it's possible to use my programmer with other free  software in the web but i've decided to write my own software for some reasons:

  1. Free software are DOS based, with a very poor users interface;

  2. Some programmers have problems reading particular eprom due to the software timing;
    sometimes infact reading an eprom twice give different results; making the reading time higher often resolvs this problem;
    this is due to a bad eprom but sometimes it's important to save eprom data before eprom "goes off";
    so I wrote my own KISSEPROM software trying to give it big flexibility on the I/O timing;

  3. it was the right time to learn Visual Basic programming;

Follows a short description of various Menu':


NOTE: there's no installation software for KissEprom;
simply make a directory "C:\KISSEPROM" and copy there all the file in the  .ZIP archive (from version 1.1 that's no more necessary, for e.g. I run kisseprom from a floppy);
then copy the DLL in the system directory "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM" (or keep it in the same directory of KISSEPROM).
KissEprom needs only the external DLL in the zip archive;
by the way I found in some PC there 're missing  VBRUN6.DLL and MSCOMCTL.OCX (for example, when the error "Component 'MSCOMCTL.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid" occurs); in this case simply download the DLL or the component (easy to find on the web) and install it;
I wrote KISSEPROM in two week, so it's not a "finished" work, but it does what it was born for and I think that's enough.

I've tested KISSEPROM on 4 my PC with various LPT port setting and these are  results;
anyway remember to set your LPT Port (BIOS Setting) as SPP (or EPP).
