Print from a 16 bit application to a USB only printer

I have a 16 bit application that requires reports print to an LPT port. This is an older government forms program and there are no plans to update the program. The forms will not print to a USB printer.
Most new printers are USB only. I have found converters and cables that make it possible to connect the parallel port on the printer to the USB port on the PC. What I need is a converter, or cable to connect the parallel port on the PC to the USB port on the printer. Or a work around so that the reports from the 16 bit application will print using USB.
