For Windows NT/2000/XP users

DOSPRN can now use the dos-utility prn2file.com to automatically capture data, by which the DOS application will send this data to the printer running under Windows NT/2000/XP. This driver redirects all data printed in the current DOS-box to a dos file.

During installation, DOSPRN automatically places a call to prn2file.com into file %SystemRoot%\System32\autoexec.nt. This batch file is run each time you start the DOS-application. 

You can also place a call to prn2file.com immediately before running your DOS-application. To do this, create a batch-file and place a call to prn2file.com and your DOS-application into it. Of course, in this case you need to remove the call from %SystemRoot%\System32\autoexec.nt. 

Parameters for redirector:

PRN2FILE [filename] [#<Num. LPT>] [/S<sizebuf>] [/X<XMSsizebuf>]
  where
filename - name of file to save captured data (default: c:\prnspl)
#n - number of LPT (default: #1)
/S - conventional memory buffer size in bytes (default: /S4096)
/X - XMS buffer size in Kbytes (default: /X200)

If PRN2FILE cannot allocate enough XMS memory buffer, it will use conventional memory only. In this case default size of conventional memory buffer will be automatically enlarged up to 16Kb.

If your DOS-application generates large reports, you may increase the buffer size parameter.

Note:

If your DOS-application can redirect report output to a file, we recommend that it does. In this case, you need not use prn2file.com. Enter filename C:\PRNSPL in your DOS-application as a path for the output dos file.

In DOSPRN, you can also change the parameter "Job filename" to another valid DOS filename with full path and specify in your DOS-application this path/filename.
