I want to program the microcontroller (IC102) on this board using my laptop. The circuit provides a 10-pin terminal (J101) for programming, which is intended to be wired up to a ribbon cable that connects to the laptop’s printer port (25-pin D’SUB). However, my laptop only has a VGA port (15-pin D’SUB) and I’d like to know if there’s any wiring and software modifications that will allow my laptop to program the microcontroller using VGA. I’m running Atmel Studio 7 on Windows.
