I run 2 DOS based programs. I have always been able to print from them in win
XP but they have suddenly decided to stop printing. I don't know what has
caused them to stop printing. I can't print from the command prompt either.

I can still print from windows based programs and I have tried installing an
up to date printer driver but that had no effect.

The printer is a local printer and is connected via the parallel port and so
after reading that help file I should not have to do anything. Would
following the steps further down make any difference?
