Well, I tried a couple of suggested programs and some from download.com and
still no success.
Least time-consuming for me right now was just to paste together a bunch of
screen captures. Not the best way but it got 'er done.
Still hope to hear other suggestions on an easier way to do it.
Thanks to all just the same.
I'll try to make this ez -
1. Go to 'start-settings-printers'
2. Check which printer has a check mark next to it - this is your
default printer. (Lets say its an HP laserjet for argument's sake)
3. Right-click on the icon, and select 'Properties'
4. Select the 'Ports' Tab, and change the checked port to FILE:
6. Print your drawing to a file - it should end up as e.g. 'DRAWING.PRN'
7. On the other machine, ensure you have the same printer loaded as the
default printer (Start-settings-printers)
8. Copy the drawing.prn file to a stiffy :-( (preferably a CD-ROM)
9. On other machine go to MS-DOS, change directory to the CD or stiffy,
10. COPY DRAWING.PRN /B LPT1:
Please Note the /B . . .
If the printer on the other machine is different, load the driver on the
first machine with 'Start-settings-printers-add a printer', then print
Hope this helps.
