  1. Does anyone know the command to execute LPT1 to print to a TXT file?

    Thanks,

    print c:\file.txt /c /d:lpt1

    Prints the file file.txt to the parallel port lpt1

    /c Removes files from the print queue.
    /d:(device) Name of printer device
    • Printer Ports: LPT1, LPT2 orLPT3
    • Serial Ports: Com1, Com2, Com3 or Com4

    Hi I am having problems with my dell not detecting my CS4 Illustrator DVD so I can't even install it. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

    Have a read here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic114336.html

    By the way CS4 has an uninstaller located on their support page (somewhere)
    But you always need a New Topic for a new topic ;) (not replying on someone's topic about a printer issue)

    Thanks, I will try that...the program i need to use this for is a old proprietary regulatory software that requires your print to LPT1...it requires 132 columns. Would rather print to a TXT file and covert into excel or something and print to the network...etc.
