How to set Expresscard 34 Parallel Port COM Number

I have an HP Pavillion dv6000. I'm using a parallel port expresscard that I am trying to use with a printer who's driver needs to know the port number. How can I find and/or set the COM port for the expresscard?

Thanks

Find it in Device Manager and look at the details.

I've never used an Expresscard for that particular purpose, but if it's emulating a standard printer port it should be LPT1. There might also be a setting in the Expresscard setup software to manually set it to something else.
