Configuring USB to Parallel Cable as LPT

Specs: Windows XP
Hi,
I have Windows XP SP3 OS on my Laptop. I just brought a BAFO USB to Parallel cable IEEE 1284 ( USB to Printer). On plugging it in I see it getting configured as USB Printing support and not as LPT1 etc. I want to have it as LPT1 or LPT2.
My ultimate objective is to use it to control its IO's from a .NET based program.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Ranjan Batra

It is a "Virtual" Parrallel Port not a "REAL" Parallel Port, the easiest way is to purchase a PCMCIA Parallel Port Card:
