I have a Dymo Labelwriter 400 Turbo printer attached to a USB port on one of my computers.   One program I use on my network uses a generic/text only driver to print over the network to he Dymo printer.   I want to use this driver on the computer the printer is attach to, but it uses the Dymo driver instead.   I want to use the Dymo driver for some programs, so I still want to keep it.   Can I install  a second copy of the Dymo, using the generic/text only driver?   I have tried to do this, but it always installs the Dymo driver.

First install the Generic/Text driver in the Print Server Page.

Then Install the Second DYMO driver.  

Once the DYMO driver is installed go back after the fact and change the driver to the Generic/Text Driver in Printer Properties.
Inside of Printer Properties, select the Advanced Tab
then select the list box for the Driver.  Change the driver from DYMO to Generic/Text.
Apply
