Hi. I have just purchased a new PC which came with Windows 7 pro installed. this machine had no LPT ports fitted as supplied. I use a very old DOS based accounts programme which will only print to LPT1. I understand that I cant run DOS programmes in Win 7 so I have set up a Windows Virtual PC to run in XP mode and my old DOS software runs just fine. I have fitted a LPT PCI card and win 7 has detected this but has called it LPT3 and I have successfuly installed an equaly old Epson printer to it. My problem is that I cannot get this port to install on the virtual XP mode system and even if I manage that can I rename it to LPT1 and install a printer to it. Any help would be much appreciated even if its just to tell me that what I am trying to do is not possible.
