How can I redirect call to 378h (lpt1)to FCF8

Specs: Windows Vista 32 SP2, core duo
Hi, i'm wanting to run autocad r14 on Samsung R522 vista 32bit . Have bought express card with enhanced LPT1 25pin connector. I/O address is FCF8 etc. Software I assume is looking at old LPT1 address. I can't change this in device manager or bios. Any ideas?

Hi, I should have made clear that it is the hardware lock I am trying to run, Yes there are issues with Vista and R14, I have reserched and overcome a memory allocation issue. Just need to open the prog so as to deal with any othe issues. Some users run this software on vista. I just have this lpt1 problem to overcome.
Thanks, Bob.
