PRTWIN your DOS programs will be able to print to

How does PRTWIN work ?
PRTWIN runs in the background on a local
workstation. After first start program creates nine
working directories. Each of directories is dedicated as
a file container for one of nine possible windows
printers. These directories must be accessible for all
DOS programs. The local program sends the file to print
to one of these directories. PRTWIN reads this
file, sends it to the corresponding printer and deletes
If the printout includes basic Epson printer control
codes, program translates those into the commands for
other printer drivers.
After installation program creates working directory
with nine subdirectories. The default root working
directory is located in C:\PrtWrk folder. You can change
this directory in the Setup. Before use you have to
associate each of subdirectories with one of existing
printers. Rightclick on the icon on Traybar and select
Setup. In the ComboBox select the right printer for each
of the subfolders. Each of the printers has his own
additional setup parameters. You can change top an left
margin, translation mode, print destionation (printer,
RTF file) and enable ability to preview your printouts.
