Printing in dos

By loboja_mario ·
We use Windows NT and one of our users can't print in DOS to the network printer.She can't print in DOS on any pc when i log on using her username,whereas everybody else has no problems.
There are no problems connecting to the printer and when i type my command e.g
copy c:\autoexec.bat lpt1:
i then get the message that 1 file copied successfully but when i go to the properties of the printer the document just hangs there with the printer busy error.All other users can do this with no problems.I have deleted her profile locally and on the server and also deleted the entries in her logon script.
I am thinking of creating a new NT account for her.Any suggestions??

Try to use this command in a MS-DOS windows prompt:
net use lpt1: \\ServerName\PrinterName
and after that
copy c:\autoexec.bat lpt1:
or
print c:\autoexec.bat
For deleting this lpt1 mapping use:
net use lpt1: /delete
To see if exists any mapping use:
net use

Don't use any lpt mapping on computers which have phisically attached a printer.

Thanks guys for your input.Checked the priority and all was ok.I did fix it.I copied her username and logged in with the copied username and it worked ok.i then deleted her original username and renamed the test username to her original username-again i couldn't print.So i've renamed her username again by adding a extra letter and everything works fine.Strange one!
