Default MaxPlus2 and the Byteblaster MV

For a legacy project I have MaxPlus2 with the
Byteblaster MV. For a reason unknown to me,
the Programmer modal tells me that the
programmer is not there. "Can't find programming
hardware"

I checked the JTAG pins and their voltage levels.
It should be correct. What else is checked ?

The device connected : EPM3128AT144-10

The byteblaster cable to the PC serial or parallel port
and in some cases a software guard dongle on
the parallel port.

there are many reasons that will make the computer could not find the
cable.
1. If you have the hardware dog ( it is a kind of license), install it
with the cable.
2. Most of time, i just chang the cable, computer or reinstall the
software, and get the good result.
could you describe the details of your condition?

It is the free version of the software, the
downloadable license is in place. I'm going
to measure the JTAG signals now.

You must install the driver for the cable first. See:

Thanks, that what I did. Even though it once
was installed. Must have slipped off then.

Anyway, it works now, thanks to all.
