Hello guys. I have Covox, Adlib and Tandy now on my parallel and all of them in 4 way switch. So much fun!
I want to know if I can switch it on the go. I obviously need to reboot system anyway to load TSR drivers.
But can I just switch or I need to shutdown the computer first and then switch to the next LPT sound?

With these I don't know... But I use laplink a lot, and I plug it in and decouple it on the fly, without rebooting. Ofc interlnk will need to reload in my case and in your case the TSR expects the old card... But I can't see any reason why just a warm reboot shouldn't work (even ctrl alt del)

Yeah! Warm reboot is fine (quemm is quick)
But is it ok for devices itself? I remember com and parallel ports were not intend to be hot swappable or something like that
