Mach3 not finding parallel port
« on: March 06, 2019, 02:33:03 PM »
I am having problems with a fresh install of Windows7(64 bit)/Mach3.

Windows shows the parallel port as working, it is an on-the-motherboard port.  Set to EPP in the bios.  Shows up as port 378 in Device manager, appears to be normal.  Windows indicates everything is fine

Downloaded and installed MACH 3 Version R3.043.062, ran as Admin.  Parallel port driver install fails with Drivertest error.  No response to the parallel port.  Port is configured correctly in Mach.

Drivertest shows "No driver sensed installed Run Drivertest".

Any ideas?

PP driver does not work on 64-bit systems.
