no, the original UXP version has USB & parallel on the main board.
and works with both software versions.
they where offering the board as an upgrade for a while - but it has no speed advantage.

Nope.
I know that there are two versions (XP and UXP) of the programmer, the reason I am interested in an USB solution is just for convenience, NOT speed.

I asked about the PCMCIA and the USB2LPT because these seem two cheap solutions (if they work), then I noticed that the UXP uses the Cypress chip to add USB connectivity and asked if someone has more info about how it's connected internally.
I assumed it was used as an USB to parallel converter, so *possibly* it would be a simple matter to match the I/O pins from the chip to the parallel port signals.

However, as stj pointed out, the USB/Parallel capable software works ONLY on the UXP programmer, while the XP software (parallel capable only) works on both.

If i recall it correctly the parallel software version wouldn't work with 64bits WinOS versions.

Yes, no speed advantage on USB connection.

not to my knowledge.
i think i'm the only person that even bothered - and the programmer was borrowed.
so i cant really do any newer versions with nothing to test on.

You mention a fix for version 10.5 ...
Unfortunately, I can't find this version on google. If you have it, would it be possible to post a link or perhaps via PM?

Many Thanks

Change offset 03CDD0 of the executable from 55 to C3.

I looked at what you did in 10.50, and was able to replicate in some other versions.
But the latest versions were different because the strings are located in another area (sorry can't explain exactly I don't know much about how PC software works), and debugger couldn't find the strings, but then found a way.
So credit is 99% yours, Thanks!

Forgot to point out that is for the XP version, not the UXP.

i noticed long ago that the versions are very different.
i dont know why they didnt put the parallel and usb>parallel drivers in the same software.

Unfortunately it looks like the protection isn't as easy to defeat...
After a while I've noticed the cracked program started to fall back to demo mode, at first I thought it was phoning home, but it isn't the case.
This happens also with 10.50: Initially it appears to work OK, but program/verify/compare a couple of devices and eventually will stop working.

they all do it, but it's random.
i never tried to fix it because i only needed to do a couple of chips at a time.
it's a second check routine.

What do you mean?


I had the impression that the frequency of the 2nd check increased along with the counter in the bottom right, I.e. at first it wasn't so bad, but the more devices you programmed the more frequently the check came up.

I agree that when programming 1/2 devices it's not a big problem, but sometimes the check happens midway during operations, so your part (programming) will fail.

i found that sometimes you could only do one device, but other times it could take 15 or 30 minutes before it complained.
the randomness is probably intentional to make it hard to find.

Yes. Back in version 10.x, a couple years ago, found 99 occurrences to generate a pseudorandom number, either calling ´msvcrt.time' or 'msvcrt.srand´.
Thought it was so funny that even took that note then

thats poor programming, using a syscall like that - very easy to find and redirect!
