    Locating the I/O Address for the LPT Parallel port in windows 10 (case 25019)

    I am unable to locate the LPT Parallel port in windows 10 to use within the software. I am Running Media Lab 2014 in a Windows 10 environment.

    A brief google search for 'windows 10 LPT port address' makes me think that Microsoft has recently, and badly, killed low-level LPT support under Windows 10. It may be simplest to roll back to Windows 7 where possible.

    I've already posted here before, don't know why it's not showing. Anyways I was asking whether usb-to-parallel adapter would work instead of the real parallel port. This is because ssome adapters come with updated drivers that work on Win 10. I'm obviously not happy about Win 10 breaking parallel ports but I don't want to downgrade to Win 7.

    Unfortunately, using a USB adapter would not work. Windows still obscures actual pin access when using a USB / LPT adapter. You need to use a parallel port card.
