Question about Computers & Internet
I am working as a VB6 programmer.
To print a .txt file through DOS mode i am using a batch file with code
copy mydoc.txt to prn:
But it is not working in USB port printers.
Plz send me the VB6 code for printing a text file using USB printers.
Google for DOS PRINT USB, and you'll find some utilities that do this.
Or, you can include some commands in your batch file.
First, get the device name:
In a DOS window, type NET VIEW ComputerName (or use 127.0.0.1)
Once you know the printer share name, you use it in a batch file.
NET USE lpt1: \\ComputerName\ShareName /Persistent:Y
This captures the print queue to the shared printer.
You must also go into Printer Properties/Advanced/Print Processor and set it to TEXT
Your copy, print and other commands will work.

1. Save your text file (.txt).
2. On the command prompt navigate to that directory
3.Type "Lpr -S 192.168.1.200 -P lp text.txt"
Substitute 192.168.1.200 for your copier's ip
Substitute text.txt to filename.
Or you can: to print from MS-DOS apps.
1. Share the printer on a networked windows computer. Make sure you make the name MS-DOS compatible.
