Printing from WinOS2 on a USB printer
« on: January 13, 2013, 07:19:57 pm »
Dear all,

I have installed Microsoft Office 4.3c on my eComStation 2.1 Box.
Everything runs smoothly, even Winword which initially complained about a missing share.exe, after adding to my autoexec.bat the line 
SUBST C: D:\

Now, I am wondering how I can print a document within one of the application of the MSOffice suite.
I successfully configured my USB printer, a Brother HL-2030, on eComStation 2.1 using the driver for the HP-1250, but I have no clue on how to make it work with WinOS2.

Any help would be much appreciate.

Regards

François

PS: i am new in the world of OS/2 and eComStation, but I quite love this environment. I wish I knew earlier about eComStation :)
