    Trying out VPC to use Win98 and an old scanner that won't
    work under XP. This worked fine when I tried Connectix
    VPC, but now my scanner software tells me there is no EPP
    port. Tried installing and ECP port but no good, and
    there are no settings in the bios. Why won't this
    improved version of VPC run with EPP? If I does, how can
    i make it work?

    VPC (old and new) had usually had/have problems with anything other
    than a bidirectional parallel port. If you have problems with the
    parallel port,generally the recommended action is to change from ECP
    or EPP to standard bi-directional.
