I don't have an lpt3 port. Will that command add one, and, if so, how with that link back to the usb port where the printer is?
I already checked out http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q302361 and updated the registry based on the instructions in the article. It made no difference. That didn't really surprise me as the situation in the article didn't apply to printers on usb ports.
