Verify that the port is enabled and properly configured in the BIOS (setup) screens.

You cannot access the parallel port directly in VB6, you have to go through the printer driver.

VB6 has no low level access to the hardware, either via a hardware port or direct memory access. You may find an API that can access the parallel port but I doubt it. Windows doesn't like applications by-passing it and going directly to the hardware.
