    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.

    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.

    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?
