    Confirmed...XP/Pro does not offer the "Allow DOS applications to print with this printer" option either.

    As per NET USE /? on a WinXP machine I get:

    Code:
    NET USE
    [devicename | *] [\\computername\sharename[\volume] [password | *]]
            [/USER:[domainname\]username]
            [/USER:[dotted domain name\]username]
            [/USER:[[email protected] domain name]
            [/SMARTCARD]
            [/SAVECRED]
            [[/DELETE] | [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]]
    
    NET USE {devicename | *} [password | *] /HOME
    
    NET USE [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]
    So it would appear it would still work.

    FYI, Windows 2000 does not offer that option, so you generally have to use the command-line NET USE method. I'm not sure if XP offers that option either (I'll double-check shortly).

    Try the following:

    NET USE LPT1: \\<server>\<printer>

    (example: NET USE LPT1: \\IO\HP_8000DN_12B56)

    Now try to print to LPT1:, I think you'll see an improvement.

    I believe printing is not going to start until at least you close the file; and IIRC perhaps not until the process ends.

    DOS not working in Windows XP

    I have upgraded to Windows XP and all the print programs do not work.
    I was using Windows 98 when it all worked...
    My code has: open LPT1 for output as #2 and then I write to #2.
    Is there a special coding that I need to use with Windows XP ????
    I hope someone can give me an answer to this because I have a lot of these programs....
