10.3: A workaround for VirtualPC printing failures
Authored by: jelockwood on Dec 09, '03 08:06:32AM

It is printing to the Virtual PC emulated printers that is broken (the emulated printers automatically redirect the print job to the current default Mac printer).

If instead you create a printer in Windows (in Virtual PC) that directly talks to the printer (bypassing the emulation) then it works fine.

10.3: A workaround for VirtualPC printing failures
Authored by: schrammalama on Jan 09, '04 03:33:53PM

I'm using VPC 6.1 under OS 10.3.2. And I'm able to print from Windows 95 to a networked printer using print emulation. However, I cannot print from DOS nor can I set-up the networked printer through Windows, add a printer program. I'm running an old DOS program called BOSS, which I need to print from. If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE post a reply.
