SS32's TLC Dongle Activation on WIN7

HELLO ALL!!

We're using TLC v 5.02.02 on our Production machine. The machine was WIN-XP until this weekend when we finally moved it UP to WIN7. Now I'm having issues getting the parallel-port dongle activated. Software says the driver is installed, but for some reason the driver cannot start. I'd be welcome to ANY/ALL suggestions here. Is there a different WIN7 driver I need? Is there a WIN7 setting I've got wrong? MUCH thanks in advance....

Possibly need a different driver or swap in the parallel dongle for a USB one.

There are a couple of quirks installing TLC on Windows 7/8/10.
You have to copy MMTypes.OCX and MMTools.OCX to the /windows/system directory by hand, (steal them from a working TLC installation),
Set TLC to run in compatibility mode for XP sp3
And there is an updated dongle driver for 7/8/10. I tried to attach it here but the board won't let me. IM me your email address and I'll send it to you.

If you have support they will replace the LPT dongle for a USB one
