    Problem with parallel port dongle for Allegro PCB Editor ( Version 15.5 ) Reply

    Hello,

    We are having a Dell T-105 Server and installed Windows-XP Professional Operating system . This server is not having a parallel port . But ,  as we are having a parallel port Dongle, we added a parallel port  card on PCI slot of  the server.  But  as the dongle is placed on a parallel port  and as soon as we start the software installation process , the system goes in a continuous loop of rebooting. ( Please not that parallel port is working fine as it is checked with parallel port printer.  )And we are not able to proceed further for software product installation.How to make dongle and Server compatible with each other .

    We have been in contact with Cadence Support but we were told that , either PC with in built parallel port is to be used or convert  the existing parallel port  dongle to the USB one....& Parallel port card that too inserted in PCI slot wont work....

    Any help in this regard will be appreciated....

    Regards,
    Prajakta.

    Hi,

    You can check with USB to Parallel Adapters available if your Server has a USB port.
