Well there you have it! Lets see:
Reinstall the drivers for this device.
I have two non working devices: lpt1 and com1:
- In device manager, I have tried to "reinstall", i.e. update the driver??? which says you cannot continue since MICROSOFT cannot find a better match for the driver
Uninstall and reinstall the driver
- Would that be to uninstall and add new hardware or is this just a repeat of the above? However, to uninstall and add new hardware results in, guess what, code 39.
Uninstall the driver from Device Manager, and then scan for new hardware to install the driver again. (Use the Makers site where you can)- really!!! I have searched MICROSOFT's site for Parport.sys and ParVdm.sys and found NOTHING! (Results for: "parport.sys" Sorry, we could not find any results on Download Center.) But I did find some files for windows 3.1. I thought MICROSOFT was dropping support for XP. ha ha ha. Maybe MICROSOFT should take their own advice!!!
- Oh my, now we are at the last chance resolution which looks strangely similar to the first two. So here we go, unistall the devices and scan for new devices and we are back to the code 39.
MICROSOFT IS WRONG!
And then there is this pesky hidden device called ParVdm with a code 24.
Microsoft should take some more computer training themselves. Maybe they should hire the people who wrote this code!
