Hi,  

I am using Win7 (64bit) with Quartus II 9.0 for CPLD programming. Also, I use a LPT port. 

when install byteblasterII LPT driver, I use command line to install, then ocours following error: "can't start byteblaster service". Is there any technical limitation in Quartus on win7 LPT ? 

:(:(:(:(

Hi,  

I got the feedback from Altera. It was caused by OS 64 bit can't support ByteBlaster cables. So you need Win7 OS 32 bit with Quartus, and I tryed with OK. 

Hope it helps you.
