I usually supply PCs with parallel port on motherboard for Plasma CNC machine.
I used the "1 Port Parallel PCIe Card P/N 51185" for a PC without parallel port running win 7 and it worked.
Then I supplied above card in a PC with Win 8,1, the card driver installed BUT plasmaCAM cannot detect any parallel port.

Is the an Win 8.1 driver for "1 Port Parallel PCIe Card P/N 51185"?

Hi,

The Vista driver is the latest driver to be produced, we have tested this with 8.1 however.

Was this the same machine?

No!

The driver installed with no errors. Just doesn't work.

If this is another card (but same part) than the time you supplied the windows 7 machine, then it could be a faulty item.

If this was the same card just in another machine I'd suggest it might be an issue with the driver on windows 8.1, which we will need to look at.

Best Regards
Chris
