Paralell Port Setting
« on: February 02, 2019, 01:15:42 PM »
Where in Win7 do I find the 0x???? to input in the Ports and Pins settings. I have a pci add on card, it shows it in Device Manager, but dont see any number that looks like that.

0x is the start of the LPT port address that you add on card supports. Examples are as follows:

Address   Notes:
3BCh - 3BFh   Used for Parallel Ports which were incorporated on to Video Cards - Doesn't support ECP addresses
378h - 37Fh   Usual Address For LPT 1
278h - 27Fh   Usual Address For LPT 2

Click on the menu item "Config" then "ports and pins" You will see dialogue boxes for the port addresses, such as 0x378" for port #1. You need to set these to match you card.

Look at the Properties for your PCI Card in Device Manager. Under Resources use the first address shown for I/O Range (ie. 0378) Mach will automatically add the 0x.
