I have seen a couple other posts where those converter parallel to usb cables do not work well.

lpg Since I only use one computer at a time at least for printingthis seems like the best solution, though it obviously is unique to my situation. This could be fixed by making another printer the default.

If I attempt to print a second time I receive the error: After numerous uninstalls and re-installs I found that the problem was connected with the integral LPT port.

I am hoping that the issue has been fixed. Ironically the broadband modem uses an Open Source operating system! Windows 7 Ultimate and my peripherals have worked perfectly since Even when resuming from Sleep mode, I am able to print without any issues.

Llpt have tried them and the printing am12 stopped in the middle of a job For me, I would be unable to print when awakening my computer from Sleep mode and the only thing that would ak122 would be to Disable then Enable the Parallel port card in Device Manager, like so many others have been doing.

I tried plt of the recommended fixes on this forum but they didn’t work. Of course it would disappear when WIN 10 lost the parallel port. How satisfied are you with this response?

The only way to still use my printer was to buy a parallel to USB adapter. This worked for me with my ancient Lexmark ED connected to a desktop, which was connected to the printer parallel port because the USB port was already connected to a laptop.

This thread is locked. I’ve got an HP DesignJet A1 printer which must be at least 15yrs old but is built like a tank and still keeps working – with the brief exception of the time it laid idle after Microsoft quietly junked the Parallel port.

Unlike the fixes to the LPT port in Windows, the conversion cable fix will survive rebooting. I was faced with spending 3 hours putting Win8.

Thanks for the temporary workaround! I have the same question Yes this is a completely ridiculous.

Tech support scams are an industry-wide issue where scammers attempt to trick you into paying for unnecessary technical support services. That is exactly the one I bought from Walmart.

Windows 10 & LPT Parallel Printer Port.

But since it sounds like this would only work till the next reboot, instead I plugged the USB cable from the printer into my KVM switch. I’ve not tried using the Parallel port with different interrupt settings – to be honest once the USB solution worked I just punched the air and carried on being an architect who could print his own drawings. But they all just repeated the standard advice to reinstall printer drivers, check the print spooler, etc.

Thanks for marking this as the answer. In reply to BillClemens’s post a,12 November 24, In reply to dworskye’s post on January 12, When I click on print in Wk12 I first received the error:
