OpenCBM does not emulate a hard drive for a Commodore computer. It allows access to commodore devices from a PC. I think he wants to use his PC for a drive with a Plus/4 That being the case. OpenCBM is of no use.

Note that the various X*1541 adapters work fine on Windows machines as long as the parallel port is on the motherboard - USB parallel adapters won't do the job. OpenCBM would be the software of choice there.
