Urgency: Standard

General Description:
After I install the 5.1i tools, the Parallel Cable is not recognized when I run iMPACT.


Inconsistencies in registry entries for parallel port drivers exist in the 5.1i release. iMPACT will attempt to correct the registry entry, but this will only be successful if the user is logged in as an administrator.

This problem is fixed in the latest 5.1i Service Pack, available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 5.1i Service Pack 2.

You may also work around this problem by logging in to iMPACT as administrator; you will then be able to use programming cables.
