Integer-N 5.x dies trying to use parallel port via a PCI board

I have a functioning release of Integer-N s/w (release 5.0 or 5.1) controlling an ADF4107 eval board that is running from an older laptop with a native parallel port.  We have need to use move to a new PC and very few (if any) still have parallel ports.

So we purchased a PCI-to-Parallel port board. Unfortunately, the Integer-N s/w crashes trying to use the parallel port supplied by the PCI board. The previous laptop I/O address for the LPT1 port was 0378-037F while the new PCI board place LPT1 at much higher addresses (0CFA8-0CFAF). Unfortunately, there is seems to be no way to get the PCI card to move down to the standard address. I suspect the Integer-N software is walking out to the standard addresses.It gives the message "Run-time error '48'; File not found: parlio"

Does Integer-N V 7 still support parallel ports? Short of re-engineering with a newer USB-style eval board, I may be on e-bay looking for an old computer. Any suggestions are welcome
