I had hoped that a VM might make the parallel port accessible in such a way that the bit driver in the VM would be able to communicate with the parallel port controlled by Windows 7, but I guess this just isn’t possible.

I’ve already tried 2 cards with no success.

Here’s something a little different Now on to search most likely in vain to see if someone hit upon a similar solution for the EMP The serial and parallel ports install automatically and provide transparent support for any device you can connect.
Are there USB floppy adaptors which could plug into the pin floppy connector on the floppy drive I already have in my case, and then connect to one of the motherboard’s internal USB headers? I am surprised that no one produced a fully compliant USB bi-directional parallel port adapter rather than just the pretty poor LPT adapters. I would just maintain an old computer perhaps a laptop with XP and dedicate it to the purpose.
There are also PCI expansion cards to update your PC to work with that old, but faithful parallel port printer you have had for years. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally.
In fact the D-Link site doesn’t even list drivers for it.
Showing of 3 reviews. Not even all printers will work with those things, in my experience.
MCS7705 — USB 1.1 to Single Parallel Controller
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. I found installation problematic. Standard female parallel port compliant.
Fast Data Rates up to 1. Lose the cable to your printer? Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. It would also annoy me on many levels to junk a perfectly good programmer just for lack of a compatible parallel port.
I installed the necessary drivers to enable my XP install to boot from my new motherboard. Again, the StarTech card just plain didn’t work when set to legacy addresses but worked just fine as plug-and play. Why couldn’t they put on a parallel port instead? I had hoped that a VM might make the parallel port accessible in such a way that the bit driver in the VM would be able to communicate with the parallel port controlled by Windows 7, but I guess this just isn’t possible.
I just downloaded version 1. I’ve never had to do this.
MCS – USB to Single Serial and Parallel Controller | ASIX
Anyway thank you to all of you for the good para,lel. They usually emulate just enough to connect a printer. Parallel ports are hard to do right over USB.

Of course, neither of paallel worked because the microcontrolller programmer software was looking only at the three legacy LPT addresses. If I could get my XP VM to recognize the parallel port which it should because it’s at a legacy address then I might be able to get the programmer to work from within a VM.
