Can't print from dbase III Plus to an HP LaserJet 2300d
Posted on 2004-10-13
I just replaced my old LaserJet 4 with an HP LaserJet 2300d and can no longer print to LPT1 (in MS-DOS. I'm not using a USB connection. Previously for the LJ 4, I had directed print to LPT1 in the dbase programs and ran a short BASIC printer command within a dbase program for normal print and condensed print. Now when I try to print to LPT1, nothing is sent to the printer. I can however, print to my HP 750C Inkjet which is connected to LPT2. Please don't criticize me for still using dbase III Plus--it still does the job! All windows applications work as expected. I'm running Windows 2000 on the computer the printer is attached to. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
