To install the USB to LPT adapter and make it work, there is a high probability that Windows driver itself will suffice. However, you need to select the printer’s properties to have it use the USB to LPT adapter port in order for your printer to work. This tip should work in Windows XP and Vista.
- Plug the cable into the USB port on your computer.
- A prompt that says “Found New Hardware” will appear. Windows will then install the USB printing support driver automatically. You do not need to install the driver from the CD.
- Plug the cable into the printer.
- If your printer is already installed, click on Start, then Printers & Faxes. Right click on the printer you are connecting to and click on Properties. Click on the Ports tab and check the Virtual printer port for USB with the printer name of your choice beside it . Click OK.
- You should now be able to print.
