we are using the ade7758 energy monitoring ic in our project. the parallel port software given by ade is not working in windows 7 is there any solution
Is there a particular reason you are using the ADE7758? I would suggest using one of our newer parts such as the ADE7878 for example, there is increased performance and functionality for these parts.
If you are able to connect to the evaluation board with the parallel port connector then you have the choice of using a virtual machine setup with Windows XP. That should have no problem running the software and connecting with the parallel port. Or if you have another computer with windows XP then you can try that as well.
Another choice would be to setup SPI communication with a microcontroller based on the data sheet. Then communicate with the MCU. You won't be able to use the included software but all functionality can be accessed with SPI reads and writes.
