also make sure the print setup in the application see the printer in LPT1 if installed on the parallel port. Dos defaults to LPT1 if you app thinks it is on a COmm port it won't print

Are sure it is loading in DOS? As sorgie says without the printer drivers it is not going print regardless. What ever this program is it may have somekind of help system associated with it which may shed some light on if you can even print out the results.

Also are you running this while you are in Windows. If so you might be able to do this by creating a .bat file that looks something like this. This will create a txt file and the print it.

TheProgram >C:\CMOS.txt
print c:\CMOS.txt /c /d:lpt1
Exit

The link doesn't work....


Anyway, if this is supposed to run from the command line and you type:
program [Enter]
and get a nice text output,
I think you could do:
program > LPT1 [Enter]
and get a printout,
assuming you have a printer on LPT1, of course.

If there is an option to send the output to a text file, you can print that later.

If this program is actually running in DOS, then you have to press the Shift key plus the PrintScrn key in order to get a screen dump to your printer.  If it is running in Windows, then the PrintScrn key saves the current screen as a bitmap to the Windows Clipboard; you can then startup the Windows Paint utility, paste the clipboard contents into a blank window, then use the programs's Print function to print out the screen.

Or, it is possible that the following old free utility, called PrintNow, from Pc Magazine will work for you in the second case, if you don't want to use Paint, etc.:
