  • Smart Cards

    Has anyone worked on smartcards. There is an API available but
    all the samples are in c++.

    Has anyone made any application for reading smartcards in PB.
    If so can someone give me a lead or any refrence site where
    I can find some samples writen in PB.

    Any help is very much appreciated

    Thank You

    The Host software that you have for your particular SmartCard, did it come
    with a library, DLL or device driver? Or are you saying that M$ added some
    new SmartCard API functions to the WIN32 OS?

      There is an Win32 API from Microsoft.
      There are other ways to incract with smartcard through serial port.

      But I don't know how...

        You will need the Serial SmartCard reader that is compatible to your
        Smart Card you want to interface to. Different OS on each card. When
        you buy the Reader you get the SDK with it for the PC/SC API.

        Years ago, I played with 3K MemoFlex Memory cards (not so smart) and had to
        buy the reader for it ($100USD). It came with a very nice instruction book and DLL.
        But this will not work for you. Most Card Readers in the Point-of-Sale
        industry are ISO 7816 GSM 11.11 compatible, I think it is GEMCORE ??.
        Try locating their website for latest info.

          I have tried a few. But now they all only supply Drivers and say that
          it is PC/SC compatible. so I have to use PC/SC API. which is there with the microsoft
          Smartcard toolkit 1.1 but all the samples are in visual basic and
          c++ which uses Type library. So I was looking for some samples
          in Pb if possible.
