I have some software called chief architect 9.0 which is housing design software. It uses a parallel port hardware lock to run and i have recently upgraded to a new laptop which does not have a parallel port. Is there any way i can hack or emulate the hardware lock to get the program to run on my new laptop? I have tried a parallel port to USB converter but the software doesn't recognize the device through this. The lock is made by HASP.

Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated.
