LPT1 will not work on old dbase type program compiled with Harbour software RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello and best wishes for the holidays

    I have a brand new HP desktop running Windows 10

    I hooked up my old dot matrix printer using an Epson driver.

    I use a parallel to usb cable that works fine on my xp computer and works fine on my new HP Windows 10 computer

    when I use word processing software - it works perfectly

    However on the new HP 10 computer the Harbour software produces an LPT 1 error - the software is looking for lpt1

    I configured the ports for lpt1 and this does not help

    I contacted Harbour and they suggested creating a batch file using the net use command for LPT1

    This does not work

    I get this error message

    Error TERM/2014 Create error LPT1 (DOS Error 2)

    Thanks for any help
