you can use a usb port
provided the usb lpt
is addressed as its own device by an arbitor bridge
joining the usb device to a port address like lpt 1 or 2 etc

cheep leeds offer 'usb printer support'
...nothing in the right address range ...!

there is one bridge cable i found
that can run usb to lpt arbitor
however it also has to have its own hardware to work as a standard lpt bi-dir port

so usb can be done with these programmers {i do it} but it costs you for stuff to do it mine is a trust product there is a range of these on there support site cost was about 20 uk

'usb to true lpt' is the search string or
'usb to true parallel port'

h**p://www.cooldrives.com/software-dongle-lpt-pcmcia.html

h**p://support.microsoft.com/kb/839013/en-us

use this to connect some 'most' usb printer support types to a physical address range app can use like the crap front end for willem

with the ' usb printer support 'driver
you treat it exactly as a normal lpt however you 'print' the file to a different bound location
as a held handshake {on 'do it' off} instead of normal solid bound port linking {always on till its off}

machine toshiba equium laptop usb only type
p5b asus main machine
thinking of adding dual lpt pci card
both used for top and lpt via usb where i can

old p2 programming grumbling tank with xp sp3 for true serial and lpt

all machines bios set to enable bios plug and play aware o/s and lpt spollers services and drivers removed
legacy detection enabled
