Convert Output "LPT1" to send to USB

I have an application that sends a label format to a label printer.  The problems is that some of my clients have the label printer attached to LPT1 and others have them attached via USB.

I am unable to install the label printer drivers (Zebra LP2844) so I would like to go direct to the USB printer (like I am doing with the following code to LPT1).

              Open "LPT1" For Output As #2
                Print #2, "N"
                Print #2, "q816"
                Print #2, "Q1218,24+0"
                Print #2, "S3"
                Print #2, "D8"
                Print #2, "ZT"
                Print #2, "TTh:m"
                Print #2, "TDy2.mn.dd"
                Print #2, "OD"
                Print #2, "LO2,55,807,12"
                Print #2, "LO6,1112,807,13"
                Print #2, "LO8,1141,805,16"
                Print #2, "LO2,114,807,16"
                Print #2, "LO4,1078,805,18"

              Close #2

Is there a way to send this to a USB Printer?

Thanks for any assistance
