I’m trying to set up PsychoPy to replace Presentation and I’m running into some issues.
I’m trying to run the ParallelPort demo through the newest version of PsychoPy and have downloaded the drivers from http://www.highrez.co.uk/Downloads/InpOut32/default.htm, extracted and run InstallDrivers.exe and gotten the message they were installed, and put them in the same directory as the demo .py files like the other posts suggest. I am still getting

Update: I got it otherwise working by putting the 32 files in the local folder as well. Now I’m getting this error:
Problem compiling: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\PsychoPy21852\\lib\\site-packages\\psychopy\\demos\\coder\\hardware\\parallelPortOutput.pyc'
I am on a Windows 10 64 bit computer and am logged in as the admin so I don’t know why permission would be denied.
