Issue with uploading anything through parallel programmer

Hi, I am trying to upload the arduino bootloader to an arduino UNO with a blank 328p over a parallel port programmer I made however every time I try to upload the bootloader I get this error: Parallel programmer error -

Note that I do have the right board selected in the arduino IDE.

some info about the system i am trying to upload from:

  • running windows 10 home 64 bit
  • using a PCIE parallel port card with this address: paralleladdress
    (note that the address of both the card and the port are the same in windows)
  • installed giveio 64 bit

does anybody know what could be going on and how to get my parallel programmer to work?
