Windows 7: Access XP Mode files from Windows 7

I'm OK, I should have quit for a bit, what I was trying to find out was if Medisoft came up in a way you could copy what was on the final view of data in the Medisoft software screen and import it into MS Word, this would tell us what font it is using, if the font field has some oddball font, or worse like being blank, we'll then know there is difficulty resolving from Medisoft to Print Preview and also the printer.

As far as emulation is concerned some of the steps I posted earlier deal with setting the emulation inside the printers configuration, just setting the driver for HP IIP alone will not resolve the fonts the printer has to be configured then shut down and rebooted just like a PC to have the emulation take effect.

I also downloaded a DEMO copy of Medisoft 11 and am playing with it to familiarize myself with what you see on your PC so it will take me a bit to figure this out. I also noted the program has at least 4 Service Packs SP1.....SP4, I hope you have the latest.

Talk to you soon.

So should I try this again? If so, do I just set it to HP Laserjet emulation on the control panel of the printer ... then turn it off and turn it back on? Or something more than that?

Yes I've been running SP4 for years ... and that's what's installed on all my computers.

Yes, that's really all there is, set the emulation per the instructions I posted, set the font and pitch, if your printer requires a save I did not find it in the manual but generally once it is set and you get back to the main menu and reboot it should be what you set it to. If you know how to run a test page internally, most printers do it by holding a button down when powering it, that would verify your internal settings, then make sure your printer driver coincides with it and the font and pitch are what Medisoft wants and you should be OK.

there is no 'reboot' on the menu. do you just mean turning it off and back on?

Most printers with a built in menu allows you to set font type and size I don't have your manual so I suggest just going through the printers menu items and seeing what it has if you don't find it I will dig around and see if I can find one in .pdf format so I can guide you. Rebooting is done differently on all printers, my Canon has a recycle which reboots it my HP simply lets me bring it back to the beginning menu then I turn power off and back on again giving it a cold boot and think you Brother is the same as my HP. Sorry for not being one yesterday the heat is killing me physically.
