I'm trying to print to LPT1 (a local lineprinter) from Notes version 4.5.2 DB, which is running on Win3.11
I can't use the standard printing-handling of Notes, since the output is supposed to be on a special kind of paper which is not even Close to A4 in size (a kind of receipts, with carbon-paper and stuff). -Lineprinting is what I need..
I've tried opening LPT1 for output in this way on versions 4.6 and 5 (on a win 98-machine), and it works just fine.. on the 4.5.2 (on the win3.11-machine) it just says "Can't open file".
fn% = FreeFile()
Open "LPT1" For Output As fn%
.. as you can guess I'm a bit frustrated about the whole thing.
Anybody who can guess what the reason for this is- is it the OS or the Notes-version?
Existential Angst! :)
