receipt printing problems

P: n/a
Les
I have made an app with vb.net 2002 and compiled it in
the XP environment. It works great in this environment
but when I install it to a computer running win98, I
cannot communicate with the printer. I know the printer
is communicating with the OS because I can print text
with notepad. Does this application need to be compiled
under the win98 evironment? Or is there a fix for this
type of problem?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

TIA

This may be a problem with the printer or printer driver. Does the sample
mentioned below show the printer in the printer list?

-> "PrintFramework"

I did try PrintFramework and it does show up in the list.
I am using the Generic / Text Only driver on both
machines. This is the recommended driver for the receipt
printer I am using. Could there be a difference between
the XP version of this driver and the win98 version?. I
have checked all the port settings and they are
identical.

Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance

Longshot: Perhaps your app is using a feature not supported on W98 and
that is causing it to fail somehow?
