Hi, I have a problem with an FoxPro 2.5 aplication list, if I print a lpt1 /raw the list print perfect with code bar, fonts, everything is ok, but if I print the same list to pdf printer without /raw the list dont generate god, if I print pdf printer /raw the list cant read. Can be a solution?.
A virtual PDF printer is like a Windows GDI printer: It doesn’t support (DOS) ASCII data streams. While the internal print processor will mostly do, it specifically doesn’t support bitmap graphics and barcodes.
The solution is to use an external DOS-to-Windows print processor. Which one first depends on what your program sends: PCL or Epson formatted output. If PCL, you could use the PCL6 program, else an alternative print processor. Three are mentioned in Printing.pdf.
