I have an application that needs to have a parallel port configured as when I try to install the application software, it cannot load the driver because there is no parallel port configured.  I have 3   USB ports, an HDMI and another that I can't figure out or identify.  Can I load a driver to use one of the USB ports as a parallel port?

 Don't know if it will fool your application or not.
