Windows XP Users
Windows XP users need to install a device driver to give PM32 direct control over the printer port. We recommend Direct I/O shareware available on the Direct I/O Website.
- Find the address range of the printer port you want to use under your Windows XP Control Panel: “System”, “Hardware”, “Device Manager”
- Find and right-click your Printer Port for “Properties” and record its I/O range (e.g. 0378-037F)
- Under Direct I/O, “Add” this beginning and ending range (in Hex)
- Under “Security”, browse to find and “Add” PM32.EXE
Direct I/O will time out in 30 days if you don’t register it. More instructions for Direct I/O LPT usage are located here.
