I need to print in my printer. It's a Olivetti JP150. I can use it normally to print from windows. I have followed all the instructions in the manual, but I still can't do it right. Help me please. Thanks

With my computer I can print from any windows application perfectly well. But from Autocad I can't even see it in the printers / plotters list.
Watch Question

Need a bit more details. Does it print at all? If so, what does it give?
If it doesn't print, does the printer get something?
If I understand right, it prints alright from any Windows app but AutoCAD?


Edited text of question
Is it a Windows version of AUTOCAD that you are using? version 12 comes both for DOS and Windows.

AFAIK, release 12 of AutoCAD was DOS-only. You stuck with CAD's
set of printers. What you need to do is following: check printer
manuals for compatible models and try to setup these printers in
AutoCAD. Otherwise you need to check printer floppies for CAD
driver (like most video card manufacturers do).
If you have a choice use the HP Deskjet printer drivers that come with Autocad (for Dos)

In fact a disk came with that printer, that may have the autocad for dos drivers...(I used to own an Olivetti JP150...and I always had to use the HP Deskjet drivers for certain programs..)

Hope this helps
