I work at a company who received this printer as part of a courier sign up package, but now we don't use thois courier. I need to know if it is possible to still print labels using this printer with another program, such as Microsoft Word, and do I need so software for it? Any suggestions? x

No, you do not need a proprietary Windows program for Datamax E4203. But you do need the correct driver. You can download them for free - see the link on the Able Label Systems Thermal Printers page.

This may or may not solve your Checkpoint error message, but it is all that is normally required in order to enable standard Windows-based programs to access your E4203.
if the printer seems to function . and when your queued label printes, but no text on label, check to see if your driver will do a test print to the printer. if it does, check your fonts. Some Dmax printers will have a difficulty using TT fonts, especially in serial coms.. Try the printer fonts(datamax0, 1,2,3,4.
