    W2K Not Printing From CMD or DOS Progs


    by nsceml ·

    A Dell machine with DOS accounting software and a local printer will not print from the command prompt Ex:(dir> lpt1)or from DOS programs. Prints fine in windows. I have tried a dot matrix and a brand new Epson C82 with a new parallel cable. On the phone with epson and the software tech support people and all of us are stumped. Software is correctly installed and running OK except for the ability to print. And trying to print a dir command from the command line doesn’t even make the printer twitch. I am satisfied that this is not an issue with the printer or the software. Maybe someone has an idea or something to try.
