I have a Siig PCI card parallel port on two different computers and they
work fine with Writelog and Direct I/O. You need use the correct address
when setting up Direct I/O and also change the writelog.ini file.
Unfortunately in my case, Writelog changed my ini to the wrong parallel port
address every time I started it up. I eliminated this automatic update by
deleting the fport16.exe file in the programs directory. My writelog.ini
files looks like this LPT1 = 0x378 LPT2 = 0xd400.
I hope this helps,

I recently upgraded my PC to a new Intel motherboard. The board does not
have a built-in LPT port.
I added in a byterunner LPT PCI card to solve this problem.
Since the card is a PCI card it cannot use the default 3F8 LPT1 PC IO port.
I am using XP with SP3 and WL 10.62H. The OS finds the card and maps it to 3
different IO ranges,
The addresses are available under the system information System application.
The IO ranges are 0x10a0-0x10a7, 0x10a8- 0x10af, 0x1040-0x105f.
These ranges can be different on your PC, depending upon your motherboard
and other add-in cards
I use Direct-IO with WL to open up these ports.
I cannot get WL to work when I try these ranges in Writelog.ini file's
I have tried mapping these values into WL, being careful to match the
settings with the DirectIO settings for each attempt.
Has anyone successfully used a PCI LPT card that was recognized by WL?
If so, what are your card's IO ranges and what address did you map into WL.
I would also like to know the manufacturer of your LPT card.
Tnx Jim W7EJ
