Most likely the port number for the respective parallel port is not 1. You can check which it is via the system's device manager. The /port attribute in the <port> element must match that number, i.e., if the number is e.g. 3, it ought to read
/ port = LPT3
/ subport = data
/ items = "01100101"
You can also try out different port numbers & sending / receiving signals via Tools -> Parallel Port Monitor... in Inquisit.
