I just recently bought a laptop and it came without a LPT port so I got a USB replicator dock (it includes serial, parralel, etc.). However, it was designed to only allow for printers to connect to it and then in the printing software I would have to select a USB virtual port for the printer. I have other applications and devices that I want to connect to the parrallel port but the applications do not have the option to connect via Virtual USB port, only LPT1,LPT2,LPT3. So basically my question is: is there any application that will allow me to simulate the virtual usb port as a parrallel port? I want it to look like LPT1 or LPT2 or LPT3 to any other application I use, currently it does not show up in the device manager as an LPT port because I have winXP.
