I am using dos based foxpro application in widows xp. when ever i take print from epson Fx 2175. the print job is paused at last line until i close the application. please rectify.clarify,...


Many DOS programs were designed to write directly to the printer's buffer, rather than to a spooler like more modern applications. It sounds like FoxPro is doing exactly that - and isn't designed to release the job until being completely closed.

share the printer then search for your own computer and you should be able to open it and see the shared printer like. \\server\printer

then use net use command...

net use lpt2: \\server\printer /Persistent:yes

then tell foxpro to print out lpt2 and it will act like dos
you can add net use command to autoexec.bat or windows startup if you will do this often

Try using "Print directly to the printer" option. You will get this option by:

Control Panel->Printers and faxes->Right Click on the Printer Icon and the select Properties->Advanced tab

Hope that answers the question

Dos command print in USB printer


Try this.
You can share the printer and then run a command like:
net use lpt1: \\servername\printername

I think you can go one step further even and add /persistent to the end to make it more permenant.

This will allow your program to send a print job to lpt1.

If you need further explanation of this let me know.
Good Luck

Foxpro dos programme not printingin usb printer laserjet cp1515


You can access your printer connected to USB port with loop back configuration and print from DOS.
Not only that, you can also print to a printer on the network

Try
Net use lpt1: \\Comp name\ printer name /persisten:yes

Dos Program in FoxPro


To answer the question, I need to k**w if your DOS session is running inside Windows. As this is the most likely scenario, I'll answer assuming that - the answer will be different for DOS only systems.

Has the faulty LPT1 port has actually been removed? If it has, why **t just alter the port number of LPT3 back to LPT1 ? This can be done with jumpers on an old style card, or from device manager inside Windows if plug and play. If **t, you can try the following:

1: If the printer is already installed in Windows on LPT3, skip to step 3:
2: Install the printer in Windows. If you don't have a suitable driver for it, you can use Generic/Text only driver.
3: Right click on the printer, go to sharing, and make the printer shareable. Use a share name of 11 or less characters and ** spaces - e.g. EPSONLX500
4: From the CMD prompt, type the command:

net use lpt1: \\%computername%\Sharename

e.g.

net use lpt1: \\%computername%\EPSONLX500

**te that you do **t need to replace %computername% with your exact computer name - the machine will do it for you.

Finally, for others reading this, you can also use this technique to print from DOS to most "intelligent" USB printers (Hi end Laser, Dot Matrix etc). It probably won't work with "dumb" GDI printers or All-in-ones where Windows has to do all the work. If the printer supports PCL or ESCP printing languages, you are probably going to be OK.
