printing to dot matrix printer from clipper 5.2 program under win-xp xp2

By rajib5799 ·
I have Clipper 5.2 compiled program that is running under win-xp sp2. when printing to a Dot Matrix Printer, some lines at the last do not print at a stretch, it waits for some time(10 seconds or so) and prints the balance portion. If another printing goes then the previous printing completes and again some last lines wait for some seconds (10 or so). If no other printing is there then after 10seconds or so printing completes.

I write like this : -

set devi to prin
.

.
.
@x,y say "....."
.
.
.
.
set devi to scre
set prin to
.
.
.
