Works Does Not Print to a Parallel PostScript Printer
PSS ID Number: Q39756 Article last modified on 06-12-1996
Works Version 1.x does not print to a PostScript printer or a printer using PostScript emulation connected to a parallel port because it can’t correctly send the POSTSCRP.INI file through a parallel port (LPT1:, LPT2:, or LPT3:).
This problem has been corrected in Works Version 2.00.
In Works 1.x this problem can be corrected by either printing through a serial port or manually copying the initialization file to the printer before starting Works.
The DOS command for copying the initialization file to the printer is as follows:
COPY POSTSCRP.INI LPT1:
To print in landscape mode on a PostScript printer, change POSTSCRP.INI to POSTSCRL.INI.
