    I have an new HP Pavillon running Windows Vista with no parallel printer port. I have a great HP Laserjet 1100 printer that I would like to continue using with this PC. I tried using a USB to Parallel Printer cable but could not get it to work ( installed and set to use the virtual USB port in Vista, but could not get to work). Understand that Vista does not directly support parallel printing. I need a solution?
