What difference -in your opinion- would changing the cable make?
Just wondering if the Install Application works with a Parallel Port connected Peripheral (OS finds new device at restart, not a "Hot Connect" scenario).
I had success with trying an ECP / EPP Connection, after numerous, highly reluctant to cooperate USB Installs were tried, with no successful Install each time.
After calling the Software / Hardware dirty names + Threatening the items (joke, but you know where I am going with this), tried the Parallel Port connection and acheived success!
With that said, it brings up another item:
Can I say something very dirty? Please???
You can "Hint" towards something "semi-dirty"
(eg.: "Peripheral is a Pain In The ...'synonymous with Mule or Donkey'..."),
or use an equal description of some word to convey its meaning
(eg. "Install Application has a severe Cranial versus Gluteus Maximus merging situation going on").
