    some ppl might remember,
    in the old times, flashers were connected via lpt or printer-port to a pc.
    then came Windows NT and friends, which made it more difficult to connect to flashers.
    some softwares had DLPORTIO.SYS to circumvent that.

    my questions is: does that work also, when the lpt port is connected via a USB adapter ?

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    No, it requires accesses the printer port directly. USB drivers sit in the HAL and have no direct access to any hardware.
