Brother Embroidery Software
6D Premier Embroidery Digitizing Software
A client is running an embroidery software called DayStar. It is from March of 2002. The company no longer supports the software.
In order to run the software, a unique and exclusive 'key' (aka 'dongle') must be plugged in to a 25-pin serial port. On the old Integrity computer—which came with a 25-pin port—it works great.
However, that computer is running on borrowed time. They have a newer computer, a HP Pavilion a1648x, and would like to run the DayStar software on it. Problem: the HP lacks an indigenous serial port.
I have tried two different PCI expansion cards and a serial-to-usb adapter, and the software does not recognize the dongle is plugged in. So, the software won't run.
I am mystified. There is very little on DayStar's software (or their keys) on the internet. And serial port PCI expansion cards seem rudimentary but I am clearly missing something here.

Get a PCI parallel port card instead.

I don't have one of these cards in my PC, but I do have some virtual serial ports. To adjust those I find the port in device manager (listed under 'Ports (COM & LPT)'), then find the port listed. It should be obvious which is the add on card. Right click it, go to properties. Then the port settings tab, then advanced. There's a COM port number drop down there.
Of course this is in XP and may not even be how to fix it.

Whoops: Vernacular correction. I mean parallel.
And bDiddy, I have to wait until Monday to give that suggestion a shot, but I have to tell you I am excited like Monday is Christmas! I bet that's it.
Oh hurry Monday!

Okay, that was a good guess but..it didn't work.
On the computer the dongle is currently working on, the parallel port is hard-cased into the back of the computer. Meaning it is NOT PCI.
On that computer, under Device Manager>Ports, what is listed is:
Communications Port (com1)
Communications Port (com2)
Printer Port (LPT1)
On the NEW computer—the one with the parallel port PCI card—they read:
PCI Parallel Port (LPT1)*
PCI Serial Port (COM1)*
PCI Serial Port (COM2)*
* originally read (LPT3), (COM5), (COM6), respectively.
And the software still won't install. When I restart, nada.
Challenging but I feel as if I am learning, and thank you for the suggestions so far.
