6.0: Programmable Key: Change parallel port settings if key is not seen.

Description

ERROR MESSAGE: "No current Xilinx keys found on parallel port."

On some PCs (we have seen Compaq, NEC, and Dell thus far), the Programmable Key is not seen.

CAUSE: Improper CMOS com port driver setup.

Solution

In Advanced CMOS Setup, look for com port drivers.
Change the driver to "Compatible" or "Bidirectional".
