JSI Tip 0707. Error when printing to local printer.

When you print to a local printer attached to the parallel port, you receive:

Error Writing to LPT1: for document <application name>

     <path \ file name>: the system cannot find the file specified.

This error will occur if the Parallel.sys driver is not started. Start it using Control Panel / Devices. If you get:

error 20 (hardware not detected), turn of the EPP (Enhanced Parallel Port) feature either in your BIOS or with a jumper.
