I have an application that doesn't print correctly using EMF
spool format. Using RAW is ok, but it'is too slow and takes over the system (prevents multitasking). Since I have some contact with the application makers (and I consulted microsoft.com, where I saw that other apps have problems with EMF), I'd like to know what must be done in an application to be able to print anything in both formats.

Set your existing printer(s) to RAW.
Add a printer(s) selecting the same printers, and set for EMF.
Rename your printers to reflect the differences. I.E. Laser5-RAW
Laser5-EMF. Hint. Do the same thing for speed/toner or ink ecomony:  Laser5-Draft    Laser5-HQ

This will cause some thinking about what becomes the default printer. Applications generally don't have user control over selecting RAW or EMF. Under the Windows design, its a Windows driver problem. The app. gets told to print, and it dumps its need to windows. You didn't say what the app was that doesn't support EMF, but I have seen this before and this answer made the client happy.
