Your pic shows a screenshot of a USB device, that is not the parallel port, or if it is, then it is a USB to parallel adapter you have and I dont think that will work.

Now regarding a laptop, some work, some dont, modern ones with their power saving are more likely not to work.

It must show up as an LPT port in device manager to get the port address. If it only appears as a USB port, then it won't work.

That appears to be an express pcie card for laptops they are very similar to the old pcmcia cards in that they can replicate a LPT port exactly.

To do that they use a driver to imulate the lpt and must be called AS an lpt .

I would assume that once the driver is installed the PC should see it as a lpt port???

What does the device manager show it as ???? what is its address?

SO do you have the driver installed ?
