i'm having problems printing direct to a printer from visual basic on
windows 98 machines.
These are network shares that i print direct to - it works fine from
windows nt, but on windows 98 i get file not found.
- The printer ports are captured on nt by the command
"net use lpt4 \\mail\eltron"
on windows 98 this is done through network neighbourhood (as advised on
microsoft.com) (i tried the other way aswell)
the code below works fine on nt, but on 98 it just returns "File not
Found" as an error.
Open "LPT4:" For Output As #1
print #1, "test"
i've tried printing to nt hosts and windows98 hosts - both work printing
form nt, but neither works from 98.
Is it not possible to print this way on 98?
