A client is replacing an old DOS machine and 98 machine with one XP and one Win7. He has a DOS POS program that needs to run on both with the data kept on one. I figured out how to make that happen but can't get the POS program to print. I have had the program printing on an XP machine that was temporary, but now can't get the program to print on either computer. Obviously I am forgetting something somewhere.
The printers are both (one hooked to each machine) Okidata 9pin printers. They will both print a test page and I can print from a DOS prompt on both computers. The program tells me the printer is offline when I try to print from the POS program.
Any ideas on how to make the thing print again? I know it worked once on a XP machine. I can tranfer out harddrives on the Win7 machine so it is also XP if I need, but would prefer that I get the POS program to print using Win7.
And even if I switch out I still have the problem of I am forgetting something so that I can't get the XP machines to print now either.
