DBase LPT1 to USB

By ckimble ·
At work we have a old DBASe program that the boss refuses to get rid of. It prints to Lpt1 serial port. Since this is year 2008 and most new computers are getting rid of serial and going to usb ports, he wants to get his program to print to a usb port. We can get it to happen, not very good , by using net use command. Is there a different way to do this?

Using the Net Use command is the only way to get old DOS based applications to behave.

The only way to improve this is to update that program.

It's just time for them to get into the 21st century.
