Printing PCL files under vDosPlus



Does XyWrite under vDos plus have a straightforward way to print from a PCL driver to the default Windows printer? 

If not, this may be useful.

I’m assuming that you already have pcl6.exe in the vDosPlus folder. Download this application:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/cua7evqz8cqpbnk/ShellPrint.exe?dl=1 [ www. dropbox. com/s/cua7evqz8cqpbnk/ShellPrint. exe?dl=1 ]

Place it in the vDosPlus folder.

Change the LPT1 line in config.txt to:

LPT1 = “ShellPrint.exe” #LPT1.PDF

When you print to LPT1 from a PCL driver, there should be a short pause, and then the document should print to the default Windows printer.
