I dont know, just it seems the address you have there makes pin 11 active when it should not be, I am not sure why.
If you go to Start button on windows then up to control panel on the right then in control panel go to system then hardware then device manager. You then go down to Ports (com&lpt) and double click on the printer  port and have a look at the resources tab and tell me what the first 4 digits are.

O K I went to resources and found this;
I/O Range DFOO-DF07
I/O Range DEOO-DE07
It is parallel port (LPT3)

Yes that seems correct, you have DF00  entered for it.
I am not sure why but as soon as I enter that address here the limit/home switch set to pin 11 show activated.
Afraid I dont know why or how to fix :(

Can you rewire to another pin if you have one spare, or even if your switches are normally closed you could wire them in series with one of the other axis switches and use the same pin.

Wish I had been of help, I just dont know why its acting up but definitely seems to be to do withthat address as I can enter that address in any profile I have here and as soon as I do pin 11 goes high.
