I added a 3rd party parallel port.  It seemed to install correctly.   I installed Mach3, with the printer port and all seems well.   I ran the Vista Memory Override software in admin mode, all seemed well, except.   It didn't tell me to reboot, although I did anyway.    I ran the driver test program, and it said I had an excellent pulse rate.   

All seems correct, except the steppers won't move, won't budge.   Nothing.   

Now, I'm doubting whether the parallel port is working.   Is there a Mach3 program that tests the parallel port?   

Any advise will be appreciated.
