This could be fixed by making another printer the default. Then you can connect it to the printer, turn the printer on, and install printer drivers; also disable the LPT port in the BIOS if you can and uninstall it in Device Manager.

In reply to rpesq’s am12 on November 15, Windows 7 Ultimate and my peripherals have worked perfectly since I virtualised the Win7 machine, and hosted it on a Win10 machine with Hyper-V.
This could be fixed by making another printer the default. However the drivers for those printers are up to date. Several Microsoft support engineers responded to my pleas for help in this forum, and I had two hour-long interactive sessions with Microsoft engineers where they took control of my computer.

Of course the OKI stopped working. This site in other languages x.
I have the same question Thanks for marking this as the answer. I must say, zk12, that after installing all of the updates that were released on Tue. I will report again if I run into any problems. Even when resuming from Sleep mode, I am able to print without any issues.
In installing the cable, I read somewhere that it is important to connect it to the computer first and let Windows’ plug-n-play discover it as a USB printer.
This is why I think the USB converter cable solution is the best alternative we have.

MikeAllam Replied on January 12, My final solution was – go back to the LPT to USB converter cable and share it through the customers broadband modem as a networked printer. But since it sounds like this would only work till the next reboot, instead I plugged the USB cable from the printer into my KVM switch.
Ironically the broadband modem uses an Open Source operating system! I had to buy two new SATA hard ak2, and then everything was fine.

I spent countless hours solving this mystery. In reply to RandyFormanek’s post on January 8, It isn’t getting any easier. I think those cables sometimes do not translate the language all the time and can corrupt data as it flows.
How satisfied are you with this response?

I see no evidence that Microsoft intends to fix the LPT problem. Thanks for the temporary workaround! I aak12 the adapter. I too have fixed the problem by using a USB converter cable.
