I'm not sure if this will solve your problem, but look into the Virtual PC with Windows XP. It's a download from Microsoft that installs a Windows XP virtual machine on your computer. It just starts like a program, and closes like a program. It is a real Windows XP running inside your Win7. Sadly, I don't think it does parallel ports, which is what I suspect is your issue. It does two comports great.
I used this solution to run some old DOS software that wants a standard old COM1 port that just would NOT work under Windows 7.
You'll love your LVB Tracker! It works fine--and with Windows 7/64 bit I didn't even have to install any drivers! Windows 7 loaded the USB drivers automagically.
