Windows 7: Access XP Mode files from Windows 7

Courier New would have been available when the printer was made as it debuted in Windows 3.1, but V11 of Medisoft is the clinker here and I doubt there's any way around it unless there was an update which added TTF and printer support.

When you say "Courier New would have been available when the printer was made" ... do you mean it doesn't matter that it's not on the list that prints?

Medisoft 11 works fine on my other XP machines. It prints perfectly. It only doesn't work in XP Mode (on my Windows 7 machine). Doesn't that mean that Medisoft 11 has TTF support? Or am I misunderstanding what you're saying?

I upgraded the firmware but it didn't help.

Additionally, you said there are drivers for Windows 7. I installed those in the beginning on Windows 7. But I installed the drivers for XP when I setup the printer in XP Mode. Is this correct?

Any more suggestions? Or any more thoughts as to why Medisoft 11 prints fine from XP but not from XP Mode?

Quick question, when Medisoft gives you the data on screen does it look correct or is it only seen in print preview? I have more but don't want to get ahead of myself.

I meant Courier New should be a font in the printers font style set but I'm really guessing since I have never worked with that particular printer.

When I view data within Medisoft (i.e., not previewing a report), it looks fine.

The problem is when I print or preview a report.

Hmmmm, I know this is an extra step but if I remember correctly you have MS Office, if you do a select all, coy and paste into MS Word what does it look like? I'm trying to identify the font style and size it imports into MS Word I don't believe Medisoft is a bright program, once we know what it imports maybe we can adjust the Medisoft to be something less likely to change.

I can not copy from the preview in Medisoft. It won't allow me to "select" anything.

Not print preview the actual Medisoft work screen, Print Preview Screen is only what it says it is a preview no further actions may be performed.
