Dos Printing in Vista ... HELP!
This line has always worked in every version of Windows including XP;
why won't it allow my DOS programs to print now in VIsta? "net use LPT1
\\wizard\HP960c /persistent:yes"

Where: wizard = machine name
HP960c = Printer's Share name

Re: Dos Printing in Vista ... HELP!
Hi there,

I just tested it on a Business version and it worked fine. Make sure server
name and share name are correct.
net use lpt1 \\wizard\hp960c /p:yes worked fine here (subbing my SN/SN
here)

Cheers
Craig

RE: Dos Printing in Vista ... HELP!
One odd thing with Vista - if you have a physical LPT1, you can't redirect
that port.

Check device manager and look under Ports. You probably have an LPT1
listed. If you really need to use LPT1 in your redirection, you can
doubleclick on this port and change the LPT Port number (Port Settings tab)
to 2 or 3.

After that you should be able to redirect LPT1.

Or if you only use Network printers. DISABLE the port in the BIOS and
then remove from the device manager.
