Question about Computers & Internet
LPT1 was the normal default port on older programs. It is the parallel port on your computer that looks like this:
Note the small printer icon above the port.
A few questions:
Is there not a Printer Setup menu item on this program?
When you go to print a report, what options do you have?
Did you have this program setup to print on this same printer before?
Did you do a re-installation using the Windows 7 OS? Was there not a Setup option for the printer?
What specific make and model printer are you using?
Thanks, and I'll be waiting to hear back.

Sounds like a program from win98 days. I think your best option would be to print to a PDF file using Adobe or ABXPDF. Then Print the PDF file from Adobe. ABXPDF is a free program from the US patent site, It is small and quick, sets up like a printer. You chose where to save the files from it. NEXT: go through your program options or settings and see if it has any other options for a printer port. if the program is looking for and old Lpt port it may not print to a USB. You may also find the EXE file in your MyTreasures folder right click that EXE file and chose to run in Win98 or XP mode. I hope this helps.

Right-click on the printer and select Printer Properties. Select the "Sharing" tab and share the printer. Give it a simple name with no spaces such as "Printer".
Right click on "Computer" on your Start Menu and select Properties.
Document your "Computer Name"
Now you can map your LPT port to the shared printer.
Open a command prompt and run this command where "Computer" is your computer name and "Printer" is your printer name:
net use LPT1: \\Computer\Printer
Your LPT1 port should now be mapped to your printer.
If you paste this command into a text document and then replace the .TXT and the end of the file name with .BAT it will turn it into a batch file. Double clicking on this batch file will run the command and map the port if it becomes disconnected after a log off or reboot.
A web search for "command prompt", "LPT port mapping" and "batch files" can provide more details about this process.
I hope this helps.
