but I'm not sure what's going on inside this legacy app. The user says the key sequence sent the window directly to the printer on her old XP system. All I know is if you click File, Print in the app, you get a pop-up saying do an Alt-Print Screen. Doing so on W7 results in another pop-up saying something like 'Clipboard cannot be accessed.' Apparently there was some built-in macro-like programming that could print directly from the Windows buffer.
It's a legacy app and she's the only one that knows how to use it or has a working copy of the app. The only way I could get it off the failure-prone XP antique was to clone ti onto a new machine. Unfortunately, there weren't any XP drivers for this new HP and I had to jack it up to W7 to get the NIC, USB, etc. to work. Fortunately, the data is static. If the purchasing department ever gets Crystal Reports ordered, we can export the data to an SQL server. The department in question has other people comfortable with Crystal, so we won't be dependent on the dear lady and her outdated, unsupported app.
