            Comments about StarTech USB to DB25 Male to Female Parallel Printer Adapter Cable (6.0'):

            I purchased this to attach a parallel port hardware dongle (ie, a software key) for older Windows software running under a single-core virtual machine. The provided drivers did not help with creating a parallel port address for the connector itself; the VM never identified the port for the presence of the hardware dongle. Despite these problems, I suspect the product will work for an actual printer.

                        This cable has allowed me to continue using an older printer that had been sitting dormant for years!
