I am using an old DOS-based program which is very old, but very convinient
for me to use. In Windows XP, I was able to get around this problem by
using the following commands:
net use lpt1 \\violin1\brother /persistent:yes
where "violin1" is the computer name and "brother" is the printer name.
See the following link:
I have also verified using the "net view \\violin1" command that "Brother"
is being used as LPT1 for Printing"
However, when I try to use the print command within the DOS program, nothing
happens. No errors, but just sits there until I manually close the window.
I am running my old DOS-based program to be compatible under Windows 95.
Anyone with ideas as to why this is not working with Vista Ultimate?
