possible issue is port configuration. if the generic text driver works, apd driver should work too.
what may be happen is that when you install the apd driver the other printer drivers that you have were still using the same port that your apd driver were using. example, you have generic txt assigned to lpt1 and then the apd were assigned on the same port, this is were you get the trouble.
what you must do is, first, check any printer driver that you have using the lpt, say for example, you generic text is using lpt1, when you install the apd driver set it to lpt2. apd drivers will create a new port normally called esdprt. try to use that port but if that will not work reassigned the port of your apd driver to lpt2 printer port then uncheck bi-directional support. from there you should be able to print..
hope that resolves your issue.. =)

if you are using lpt1 we expect that your printer is using a parallel cable. make sure that your printer is indeed using parallel cable and then check if there's a communication in between the 2 devices. to find out open your command promt then type in, dir>lpt1, your printer should print with or without a printer driver. if it will print, then possible issue is port configuration.. just make sure from the printer properties that you are using lpt. you can use esdprt lpt1 with bi-dir or lpt printer port without bi-dir support. you should be good to go from there. otherwise you may uninstall and reiinstall your printer driver..
Hope you can now use your printer..=)

I spent a good week trying to find an answer to this problem... and finally I HAVE THE SOLUTION!!
it's to do with the Port settings.
go to BIOS and change the port settings on your computer.
there are a number of different options that can be selected, just try them one by one, the one that worked for me was "Normal" try that one first, but it may be differnet depending on the printer.
if your LPT port is using it's own driver (not using BIOS to run) you cant change the settings using the BIOS. see if you can change it useing the settings for the dirver. if not try updating the driver. if that doesn't work, and nothing else works, reinstall Windows, that should fix the problem as a last resort.
