I am running Windows 2000 Advance Server and I have a POS program that the vendor is saying it is a microsoft problem with printing from a serial port(COM1) I have an Epson Serial printer and I tested it VIA the printer folder and I get a test print. I then go to the command prompt and used the mode status command and it saying it does not exist but if I use the print command (eg. print /d:com1 c:\set.txt) it prints. Is there any way I can automatically print the file out or get windows to print from the software. Any suggestions
