LabVIEW and Parallele Port

Is there any way of communicating with the parallel port of the PC using
LabVIEW?

Thank you.

Yes, use the serial VIs. You will also need to
make changes to the .ini file to add the COM
ports to the list of ports. I don't have the
details in front of me, but I believe that
this is documented in the manual and on the
web site.

Since it's actually not that easy to find, here's the alteration to the .ini
file:

Append:

serialDevices="COM1;COM2;COM3;COM4;COM5;COM6;COM7;COM8;
COM9;\\.\COM10;\\.\COM11;\\.\COM12;\\.\COM13;LPT1;LPT2;"

(as one line)
