Not sure if this is the right group for the question.

I need read PC card status in a win 2k/xp system. I have no idea how to do
it. I am not trying to develop a device driver, but for a user application.
Is it necessary to do it by kernel model service (writing a driver)? Any
example code for it?

Thank you for your help
