In order to make working the chiplab under Windows XP I do recommend this way:
first download Porttalk program here
See also
then what I have done : I have copied the content of porttalk directory in the C:\CHIPLABW
then from a dos prompt in the C:\CHIPLABW directory
execute allowio winchip.exe /a
then it will start the chiplab software and the programmer will be recognized.
Have a look to this workingbatch file that launches a command shell and runs the PortTalk scripting for you automatically. By the way, in the script, the PortTalk software is also located in the same default directory of C:\CHIPLABW. It seems to be working fine on a notebook (Dell D620 1.66 GHz, WinXP_SP2 w/1GB Ram)

Here's a cut and paste of the scripting that's inside the batch file.

c:\chiplabw\allowio.exe winchip.exe /a

An Other way to make working the Chiplab under Windows XP is to use Userport (ZIP Archive - 34Kb)

1. Winbond 27C512 EEPROMs can be programmed by selecting Winbond 27E512 (At least the DIP version)
2. The programmer does not allow the part to be erased (it is greyed out)
3. You can erase the 27C512 by connecting pin 22 to programmer pin 1, connnect pin 1 of the device to pin 2 (so they are both connected to programmer pin 2), and select Winbond 27E257. DO NOT TRY TO PROGRAM THIS WAY THOUGH!. You will have to disable the pin checks though or it will not work.
