Using LPT1 port to program MiniPov3

by ericscheidt on Thu Dec 22, 2011 4:10 am

I am trying to program the minipov3 using a serial to parallel port converter. Is this possible? I have changed the MakeFile to set the AVRDUDE_PORT = lpt1 but am receiving the following error when running make program-minipov.

C:/minipov3>make program-minipov
avrdude -p attiny2313 -P lpt1 -c dasa -U flash:w:minipov.hex
avrdude: ser_open(): can't set buffers for "lpt1"
avrdude: serbb_setpin(): SetCommState() failed: The handle is invalid.

make: *** [program-minipov1] Error 1

Any solutions or ideas would be very helpful. Thank you.

I should mention I am using the kit. I am running windows xp on a laptop. After assembly everything looked good and was greeted with a nice chasing light sequence.

lpt1 is the printer port, you want a COM port
