Problem using Delphi 2 with XP (printing issue)

Previously, I used Delphi 2 with 98 and Me. I've had to use the setprinter command to connect to a ticket printer connected to another workstation printer. Now with XP (especially professional) when you set up a printer on another workstation the name on the printer setting is on . It messes up everything with the setprinter command. The workaround was to set up the printer as a local port and then change the port setup so that "on" portion wouldn't be included. But now that doesn't work anymore. Does anyone has a working solution to this (especially to use the "on" portion of the printer name)? I'm using Delphi 2 with quickreport (version 1 I think). I'm desperate for an answer.

Wow, Delphi 2. Off hand I don't know the answer so hopefully someone else will chime in with some helpfull info. However, I do have to say that you really do need to upgrade to at least Delphi 6 and Delphi 7 or 2005 is a better choice. Remember, Delphi 2 was NEVER tested with XP as XP was just a glimmer in Bill Gate's eye when D2 was developed.
