Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Designer 1 with a paralle dongle. I now have a new computer and parallel connections are no longer available. I purchased a USB to parallel convertor cable and it appears to be mapped to LPT1. The software does not see the dongle. I am using the VIP software. Is there a setting somewhere that I need to check to see why the dongle is not found.
Those dongles will only work on a PC that have a "legacy" parallel port. Adapters will not work and even a PCI parallel port card will not work. The drivers that access those dongles were written to access the hardware(PC) directly with the old parallel ports at their real hardware address and not through the Windows OS as an LPT.
You may want to check with the vendor that supplied the dongle if they have a USB replacement as most vendors have gone that route with their dongles.
