[Wine] Parallel port access

I have a small Visual Basic app for a prom programmer which uses the 
parallel port (lpt1) to control the programmer. It uses a third party 
dll (io.dll) to give vb direct access to the hardware. I cannot get wine 
to see that port at all. I have given myself rw mode to /dev/parport0, 
there is a link (ln -s /dev/parport0 lpt1) in ~/me/.wine/dosdevices as 
described in the user notes. The app is a compiled .exe file so should 
only need its own dll's etc which I am sure it has.
Running wine-0.9.24, fc5.
Can someone please tell me exactly what the registry entries should look 
like for this port? or is there something else I have overlooked?
