NAFPRINT (This works also on Windows XP)

by yazan5 In reply to DOS OPERATING - ARABIC ...

Another problem may face you after running your legacy apps is HOW TO PRINT FROM DOS.. IT GIVES RABBISH!?

Well, It's quite simple.

As you used to do in old systems, NAFPRINT should load its fonts on the printer. In our case it SHOULD BE DOT MATRIX, right?

Anyway, Just define you printer with Windows XP driver, I've used Epson LQ1050, test it on Windows environment to make sure its working.

--NOW, grab this DOS print utility, from this link,
ftp://ftp.arnes.si/software/simtelnet/msdos/printer/dsp110.zip

--BEFORE DOS PRINTING, SHARE YOUR PRINTER, THE DOT MATRIX, NAME IT SOMETHING LIKE "EPSLQ"

--ON DOS PROMPT, RUN THIS COMMAND,
net use lpt1: \\yourcomputername\EPSLQ

--THIS WILL DIRECT ALL PRINTED DOS FILES TO YOUR PRINTER.

--LOAD YOUR FONTS TO LPT1 BY USING "NAFPRINT" WITH THE OLD SAME WAY BY RUNNING "NAFPRINT xxx.PDB /LPT1 /N" OR WHAT EVER PARAMS YOU HAVE.

--TRY TO PRINT NOW, IF IT'S STILL RUBBISH, USE "DSPRINT FILENAME" INSTEAD OF JUST "PRINT", THATS OUR SPECIAL PRINT COMMAND DOWNLOADED FROM ABOVE.

Happy printing oldies
Regards,
Yazan
