Gérald,

you may want to have a look at Printfil to capture the DOS LPT1: output and
forward it to any printer installed on your Vista machine (including GDI and
virtual printers)

You can find more info and a free trial version to download at
http://www.printfil.com

Please note that with Clipper you may also avoid capturing the LPT1 output
this way:

SET DEVICE TO PRINT
SET CONSOLE OFF
SET PRINTER ON
SET PRINTER TO ("C:\My_Dir\Filename.txt")
....
.... @ x,y say ... normal printing commands
....
SET PRINTER OFF
SET CONSOLE ON
SET DEVICE TO SCREEN
SET PRINTER TO

Then you only have to set the "File to Check" field in the Printfil's
configuration dialog as c:\my_dir\filename.txt to have your Clipper print
jobs automatically captured and printed by Printfil.

Kind regards,
