I have a ProPIC 2 programmer which needs parallel port (DB25) to work but I don't have in my notebook that port (SO: Windows 8), so I'm using a USB-Parallel adapter.
When I connect the device it installs the driver correctly but not recognize the programmer. If I go to "Manage devices" my adapter is shown as an USB connection and not as parallel port. Here appears a little message : "No printer connected".
Could you tell me if it's possible to connect the programmer with an adapter? Thank you.
