Setting up Printer for DOS Program

By lmcdonald ·
I am running an older DOS program that only recognized LPT and COM ports in the printer setup. I have 1 USB port printer and 1 network printer. Does anybody know how I can get around the printer setup so that I can print to these printers?

When you go into the printer properties there should be an option to capture printer port. Select the LPt or com port you are attached to and then map the path of the printer. \\server\printer
