DOSPRN is a small utility designed to resolve compatibility issues between legacy DOS applications and modern printers. This program not only resolves compatibility issues, it also provides a powerful print queue management, which makes it a valuable tool for Windows-based applications.
The application requires virtually no user interface; in fact, this is limited to the system settings. DOSPRN runs from the Windows System tray intercepting printing jobs on the monitored ports.
In relation to the settings, the program lets you select a default printer and text formatting options. These output options, include report's presentation. This application allows you to set paper size, define the margins, font type and size.
Other settings are related to the printing queue management, such as start printing instantly or wait until the report is done.
In all cases the configuration's options described above, can be accessed at any time by clicking the application's icon located in the Windows System tray. DOSPRN also offers other management options, such as pause, delete, or restore a print job.
Finally, after making a careful testing, our Team conclude; this program not only serves as an interface between legacy DOS applications, but it is also a powerful spooler that can replace the Microsoft Windows printing interface. Furthermore, we recommend DOSPRN as a program with useful functions in a solid and stable package.
DOSPRN is a recommended choice for DOS programs to print on the newest printers.
Developers can avoid unnecessary DOS application's migration for incompatibility issues. Thanks to its bridge capabilities, which acts as an intermediary between the legacy application and printers.
This program also includes a powerful print queue management, which makes it an interesting tool even for Windows applications.
Finally, we can recommend this application as a small component that resides in the Windows system tray, with minimal resources consumed. It gives the legacy applications the ability to take advantage of new printing technologies as if they were developed especially for Windows Systems.
