Hello,

First please note that ZPL full set of commands aren't supported by all Z printers. You may want check which commands do you need and the available in the target printer. Basically, the trivial commands are available.

If you have already the drivers installed in your computer, just send the strings, including the ZPL commands (in the format control-letter, as in ^BS) as you want.

So, if your Windows version supports Delphi, the answer is yes, you can use winspool.pas.
You may have problems with the Windows SDK, so let me suggest take a look at
 http://mc-computing.com/languages/Delphi/DeviceCapabilities.html
where there are some hints on how to use winspool.pas in environments with both the Windows SDK distributted with Delphy and the one distributted by Microsoft.
