Re-Install PC. Mill not responding
« on: January 28, 2015, 10:42:22 PM »
Did a complete Win 7 re-install - with all updates, service pack etc.  Mill does nothing.  Parallel port is a PCI card and Windows control panel device manage says Microsoft driver is installed and is working!

Am I correct in remembering there is some DLL that is needed for the parallel port?  If so what and where do I put it?

Any other advice?

Thanks

John

OK, fixed it.  If anyone has a similar problem:

Took out PCI card and restarted.  Device manager showed an LPT1.  Removed in device manager and restarted. Still there!  Weird.  My guess is there is one on the motherboard but not wired to a connection.  No system BIOS settings for this.

Put the PCI card back in and this time it came up as LPT3 and everything works.

Looks like I have to remove the PCI card for a Windows install then put it back in later.
