When i print (at home) directly to my printer everuthing works fine.
When at work i print to a newtware print queue (a captured lpt1) i get no print at all.
My program hangs after sending the first bytes to the printer.

I am using the 'normal' printer.print syntax

Your normal print.print syntax is not the problem. A DOS based CAPTURE has no effect on win95. You need to assign windows print devices to the printers and not try via DOS. VB renders the page to an internal "meta printer" and then ships it off to the windows based device. So windows needs to point to a print queue for everything to work.

The problem was not the capture.

I solved the problem by sendeing an printer.page before the printer.enddoc.

Now it works fine.
