Does it work as a normal user in XP? Or do you need to be an
administrator? If you need to be an administrator, it probably
interfaces directly with the parallel port, for which you would
probably need a workaround as mentioned above.

Because some of the parallel port programs use some really dodgy
code... (At least for a multi-user / multi-tasking operating system)
They request direct hardware access from the operating system and
ignore the normal way of working through a driver.
