    Not knowing the inner workings of LPRINT, this is just a wild guess: it might have to do with NETBIOS name resolution. For example, if you share that printer without changing its name, Windows will give you a warning that some programs might not be able to recognize the printer because of an invalid NETBIOS name.

    trouble with LPRINT ATTACH

    This works ok:
    Code:
    XPRINT ATTACH "\\ZEBRA\Zebra_Z4M_Plus_(203_dpi)"
    And this doesn't:
    Code:
    LPRINT ATTACH "\\ZEBRA\Zebra_Z4M_Plus_(203_dpi)"
    No error message, but LPRINT$ still returns null.

    If I follow http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314499 and
    Code:
    LPRINT ATTACH "LPT2"
    it does work and I can print.

    Although the PBCC manual does mention potential trouble with LPRINT ATTACH to a UNC with Novell, this is just a NT domain with no Novell products in use.

    Why does the LPRINT ATTACH fail?
Working...
