Windows 7: DOS program on virtual xp print lpt1

Thank you, Lemur, for your comments.

Perhaps I should "bite the bullet" as you said, but that would still be time consuming. If my Windows 2000 Pro computer went down today, I'd need a solution today. Reprogramming is longer term, certainly. Thus I would like to press on with this project as well.

When you said, "I like the redirect solution by waycon," did you mean installing Windows 2000 in Virtual PC?

Also, and I would understand a "No" to this question, if I sent a copy of dbase with my POS app on it, could you test it to see if it would print out?

I thank you for all you have done. Quite an experiment.

I'd be glad to take a look at your program. I do have a DOS-based program at the university used for public health called EPI Info. They have a Windows version, but the users stick to the DOS-based version. It is a real pain getting them to print, and our printers are all networked.

Thank you, Lemur, for offering to look at my app. What I will do, then, is upload, in a zip file, everything necessary and post it on, say, fileshare, then send you the address for downloading. I'll send that in an email, as I don't want to show all the world my POS. I'll send you my email address if that's all right, then edit it out when you have copied it down.

OK, my email address is:

**edited**

I'll delete this as soon as you tell me you have written it down. Then you can send me a note with, of course, your address.

Thank you.

Done. You could have sent this as a private pm.
