Hello JA,

1. Are parallel ports enabled in the BIOS  ?

for Windows XP Pro, under:

  START >> Control Panel >> System >> Hardware >> Device Manager
expand the Ports (Com and LPT) and see if LPT 1 is enabled and working.

2. If not, is the parallel port on the motherboard or on a plug in card 
like a PCI or a PCI-e ??
add the new hardware and use the drivers provided with the parallel card. Or
Load the motherboard drivers for the parallel card.

After a LPT port is available and working under Device manager,

Under: Device manager >> expand Ports (Com and LPT) >> and select the 
available LPT port
Then select or change under the PORT SETTINGS Tab, the LPT port needed, 
like LPT1
Verify under Device Manager, under the LPT1 , General Tab, that the LPT1 
port is working and enabled.

Start up LINRAD and enable the LPT1 WSE control during the initial set up.

I put in Delta 44 and Linrad under Windows XP. I can not see any differences in any of the settings in the three machines?
