We are setting up a new network with new HP DX2450 workstations that do not come with a built-in Parallel port anymore. We have a legacy application running on DOS 6.22 runing well in Virtual PC 2007, which needs to connect to a laser jet via Virtual LPT1.
So I purchased a PCI-e Parallel port card, installed it OK and Windows XP is happy with it. However I cannot configure it to read the standard 378h-37Fh port range, as the PC's BIOS doesnt control it. According to other forums, I need to get to this configuration to enable the Virtual PC2007 interface to see the port.
Currently in Device manager the resource ranges for the physical port are:
IRQ = 16
Anyone know how I can mod these settings in XP?
