I have a serial printer attached (as plug and play) to LPT1 with 64 bit drivers on a windows 7 box. So when Devices and Printers is selected it shows as TallyGen. This printer is shared with other PCs. On them when Devices and Printers is selected it shows as "TallyGen on PC1".
My application (running on PC2) using Crystal XI and VB6 allows users to choose which printer they require and that established the report name (by adding "T" to the front if the report is to be printed on TallyGen on PC1).
Each report has had at design stage three versions
reportA - to use a view only
LP_reportA - to use on PC1 (directly accessing TallyGen)
TLP_reportA - to use on PC2 (accessing "TallyGen on PC1)
So reportA and TLP_reportA both work; however LP_reportA doesn't (logon failure at print time).
So is there any way to set up both access points on PC1 so that when Devices and Printers is selected it shows both "TallyGen" and "TallyGen on PC1"?
