Bug in most recent release? Parallel Port Monitor

Dear Sean,

whenever I try to configure sending / receiving signals to / from the parallel port via the 'Parallel Port Monitor' (Tools menu) in the most recent release (posted on 5/31/2007), I get one of the following error messages:

(1) Inquisit Error - Parallel port operation failed. - Line Number: 235 - File:.\DirLptPort.cpp - Status Code: 9996 - Error Message: 'No device handle'

(2) Inquisit Error - Parallel port operation failed. - Line Number: 270 -
File:.\DirLptPort.cpp - Status Code: 2 - Error Message: 'Can't load zntport.sys'

Is it just my machine? I'd be very thankful if you could give me any hints at a possible solution...

Thanks a lot!

This is likely due to the fact that Inquisit 2 and its parallel port driver are not compatible with Windows 7 and above, much less 64-bit editions. You may want to consider updating to Inquisit 4.
