Win 98 doesn't want to print Dos Apps.

By jamesandrewhuff ·
I have a end user htat Windows 98 doesn't want to printing in a Dos Application using Novell32 Client.

Isn't there a command that I can use in the autoexec.bat or config.sys to load the printer file automatically?

Any help on this issue would be greatly appricaited. Thank you,

James Huff

Make certain that when you are installing the printer on the workstation that when prompted "Do you print from MS-DOS programs" you select Yes. If you are not sure, just re-setup the printer.

If this does not work, you may need to set up the printer to capture a printer port. You do this under printer properties, details, capture printer port.

Hope this helps!

You need to have a LPT port assigned to your printer.. Go into the printer details and make sure you have a lpt port assigned to the printer and that it actually shows the lpt# on the port line. If it does not, do the drop down and select the linethat does include the lpt port.
