When you try to print a document, you receive:
There was an error found when printing the document <document name> to LPT1.
Do you want to retry or cancel the job?
When you use Device Manager to view the printer port information, the device is reported as inactive:
Code 29: Firmware not correctly installed.
If you uninstall the printer port and restart your computer, the printer port is detected and you receive:
This device is disabled because the firmware of this device did not give it the required resources (Code 29).
This is generally the result of a BIOS setting.
Change your BIOS parallel port setting from OS Controlled or Automatic to Enabled.
