WinPrint Enables Modern Printers For DOS Applications

Windows only: DOS isn't the most popular operating system anymore, but you might have a legacy app or two that needs it. WinPrint links modern USB printers and older DOS applications for headache-free printing. You can tweak a host of settings in WinPrint to make sure your DOS print jobs end up arriving at your printer looking like they should. Page margins, default fonts, page orientation, and character conversion settings enable you to finely tweak data sent to the Windows-based printer. WinPrint supports any printer installed on your system, including virtual printers like PDF converters and sending text to Microsoft OneNote. If you're looking for a way to get old records or obscure data out of an old-timey app and into your current workflow, or just to squeeze a few more years use out of a rock-solid DOS application, WinPrint can prevent you from having to scrap an application over printer incompatibility issues. WinPrint is freeware, Windows only.


    I'm really bugged by the opposite problem. I've an ancient but perfectly serviceable Canon LBP monochrome laser printer with a nearly new toner cartridge that Vista won't recognise. (Linux doesn't have a problem, but I work in Vista).

    It would be a sin to throw it into a landfill without at least finishing the cartridge.

    Any ideas?
