Re: Printing PCL output under vDosPlus



There's a slightly more complicated way to do it, but this simpler one is producing an error message on Win 8.1, indicating that VCRruntime140.dll is missing, for which Google is offering conflicting explanations.  

What's the likeliest?  Thanks.

Subject: Printing PCL output 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.
