    I just installed Crystal Control on 64-bit Vista Beta 2 to handle my 20x2
    LCD screen (HD44780) attached to printer port. It is giving me a "Error; Init
    of "Printer Port 0x378" failed. The module will be disabled until it is
    reconfigured" It cannot find it on the other ports: 0x278, and 0x3BC. Is
    there a change on the port location. I tried LCDSmartie and still no luck.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,

    Yes. THIS IS BETA SOFTWARE. All standard rules regarding BETAs apply.
    If you do not know what these rules are, you shouldn't be using Vista
    BETA 2.

    Really? Wow, I thought I may have pointed out something out in this BETA. I
    KNOW this is a BETA area, I posted this message to the "Help and Support"
    site to see if anyone knew if this was printer port error was intentional or
    not. If so, then I want to make sure this is noted to thier TESTING team for
    their list of fixes on their next version. You did not have to reply if you
    don't know the problem and/or the solution.

    I know, you're too busy putting non-helpful replies to the "Help and
    Support" discussion areas.
