Hi again guys,
This same system as mentioned before is driving me nuts with the way it handles printing. Apparently its printing directly to the printer only most of the time it throws out strange character codes instead of the actual line graphics that it is supposed to.
I've gone through the postings on here and seen some stuff on this but still can't get it to work.
I've mapped the required printer to the LPT1 port using the net use dos command, i've checked that its working by sending a directory of C: drive to the LPT port and it prints fine.
I've gone into ProIV and selected printer mappings from the view menu.
From here i've set
Pro-Iv Printer = LP0
Windows Printer = Device
Device name = LPT1
This prints but has the same strange character codes.
If i use Device name = LPT1:RAW then i get the message
"Printer LP0 not mapped, and there is no default printer"
The system then goes into a loop which it can't get out of and you have to control-alt-del to get out of the program which in turn locks the user out of the system and I have to log in as an admin to reset them.
Anyone got any idea where i'm going wrong?
