(WPDOS) Print Job Stuck in NETWARE queue - OS windows XP
Posted on 2004-03-31
I have been having problems printing to a Novell print Queue (Running on Novell 3.2) - i know, the age of these systems doesn't bear thinking about.
I am trying to print from a Networked version of Word Perfect DOS (v5.1) to a novell print queue on a Windows XP Workstation. I am able to print to the print queue through Windows XP and am also to print to the printer Via DOS using the DIR >LPT1 - or DIR > \\VP_EXETER\SECOND_FLOOR. Also this same operation worked and is still working perfectly under windows 95 and 98.
I have tried Setting up the latest printer drivers in word perfect, but do not think this is the issue - i also have the latest printer drivers installed on the PC.
I have also tried setting LPT1 / LPT2 as the path to the printer using NET USE and have tried older drivers also, but to no avail.
When printing on the Windows XP workstation - the job DOES get submitted to the print queue, but it's status remains at "adding" - and it will remain in this state until cancelled - when going into the detail of the print job it's byte count remains at 0 and doesn't change.
This problem is incredibly urgent and so am offering 500 points to anyone who can help me - i would offer 1000 but EE impose a maximum
