Platform Cable USB instead of Parallel cable 4

Hi,

This question might sound silly, but i would really appriciate some help..

i have an old Digilab XC2 design boardkit, which suppots parallel cable(direct) programming, it also has a socket for Xilinx Parallel cable 4 i guess.. I have the Xilinx Platform Cable USB, but i don't have a Parallel port in my computer or Xilinx Parallel cable 4..

So, im just wondering whether i can use the Platform Cable USB instead of Parallel cable 4. i tried though, but im getting an error saying "ERROR:iMPACT - A problem may exist in the hardware configuration. Check that the cable, scan chain".. atleast is there anyother workaround??

 

Thank you,
