    Some old DOS programs need the printer to be enabled to print in MSDOS mode. You can usually set this option when installing the printer.

    The only other thing I can think of is if the software is just printing to LPT1 and the printer is either network or usb!

    If it is the latter you need to map the printer port i.e. from a dos prompt type net use lpt1 \server\printer. The idea is if you can print from the dos prompt you can print from the software as the environment is the same!

    Let me know if this helps

      I tried to execute a dos based "finansit" through pcanyware from several versions and also tried diffrent remote aps like vnc ect, and I was unable to see a proper screen view, just lines all over. I talked to several experts coming to the conclusion that there is nothing really that can be done. I hope that this is not your case. Please let us know for any solution.
