    Hi



    I have just inherited my daughters Toshiba laptop that is running Vista with all the security upgrades etc. I want to use it in my business for emails and running an old dos based construction estimating program that is called Conquest and has a parallel port security dongle.



    Because the laptop has no parallel port I bought a quatech expressport converter (bidirectional).The software says it can't see the dongle and won't work. In XP I had to set the dongle to see LPT1 via device manager.



    Is there a similar tweak in vista?
