You can use these new versions of driver,
by using one of the 14 language's .INF file.
12 help files are missed, there is only a German and an English help file.
If you install any other language, the hardware wizard should install
the English help file.
The 64 bit drivers are bare functional, you can run
Kurzschlusstest.exe and Brenner.exe, but there is currently
no I/O redirecting.
However it's easy to write replacement DLLs for some applications,
like InpOut32.dll, InpOut64.dll, PortTalk.dll (latter for PowerSDR).
As none of the drivers are release-signed, you must disable
sign enforcement for Win64 (press F8 at every Windows startup).
There are tools to disable sign enforcement permanently.
For fallback, old drivers are in the "alt" (German for "old") directory.
Change log (+ added feature, - bugfix, * changed):
090503 initial BETA version - without firmware update
+090520 added Russian and Turkish resource (now 10 languages)
-090610 SubD & Bits graphics position for changing font sizes
-090616 Invisible bit names on Vista (it's a Vista bug?)
+090616 x64 compilation, not yet tested
+090617 added firmware update and short-circuit test, not tested
-090630 short-circuit test now functional, firmware update will not work
Invisible bit names on Win98 (it's a documentation bug!)
-091005 Almost-not-working .SYS driver under Win98/Me (hmpf!!)
Decision to split usb2lpt.dll into different language versions
*091010 Split usb2lpt.dll with one language per file (not as executable yet)
+091013 (Hopefully) Multi-processor-safe driver usb2lpt.ntx86.sys,
to be copied and renamed manually to system32/drivers/usb2lpt.sys.
Stolen debug registers seems to not occur anymore on MP machines!
+091020 Source code added for language-dependent DLL and INF(!) files,
in Device Manager, localized strings should occur.
Some internal changes to driver code to move toward a two-file
solution introducing a universal PORTTRAP.SYS helper DLL.
*091108 Re-arranged source tree, truly independent language DLLs and INFs.
Functional Makefile. BAD_POOL_CALLER bug fixed in usb2lpt.ntx86.sys.
This should be a final BETA while testing the 3 drivers on 3 platforms.
-091109 New BSOD bug MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS fixed.
There is still a PAGE_FAULT BSOD bug on system shutdown.
+091112 Driver package test-signed (still won't load silently on Win64)
-091116 Last known BSOD: PAGE_FAULT fixed!
-100112 Makefile error linking Windows98 driver with wrong entry points
*100112 Rearranged .ZIP file, BETA directory content elevated (i.e. removed)
this is now the current driver version
+100429 added Portuguese (Brazilian) resource (now 11 languages)
*101201 Rearranged .ZIP file esp. for organisation of ATmega firmware
+101213 USB2LPT6 now multifunction device with secondary HID interface.
It's a low-performance Win64 workaround for driver signing problems.
*110707 Slightly bugfixed USB2LPT.SYS has now aggresive defaults for redirection
-111026 Changed DispatchPower routine, added Hungarian resource
+120219 added Polish resource and help, small fixes in propertysheetprovider
*130507 Changed firmware for USB2LPT 1.5 and 1.6: Added bit manipulation support,
Bulk transfer removed per default, soft descriptors, bi-lingual text
-130614 added CoInstaller code for FriendlyName text (does it work??)
*130614 Feature register code for optional Low-Speed Bulk transfer
