Thank you for suggestion. My version of windows is premium and of course it would require upgrade to professional in order to download xp mode. Will look into that if I don't find any other way.

Took your advice. Wsa able to buy a upgrade reasonable then download xp mode free.. Able to install plotter, but having trouble finding the printer port in virtual pc. Plotter will print test to my hp printer on my home network, but can't find port my plotter is hooked to. It is hooked to a usb port on back of computer using usb to parellel port cord as I used before. Any idea if I need to set up something in xp mode? Thanks

Delsconst: your best working and most cost effective solution would be to purchase a parallel port card for the machine in question. Those USB/Parallel adaptors rarely work. I have tried that solution at least a half dozen times without a single incidence of success yet.
