Hi,
how do you run this Program? Under Windows XP, Vista, 7 , 8 or 10?
If under Windows 7 to 10: Download the DOSBOX-Program and make a new directory as your ‘Virtual C drive’. Copy all your data ( DBF and EXE) into this directory. In the dosbox.conf you can configure how the print will be handled.
Write a starter.bat:

NET USE LPT1: \\127.0.0.1\YOUR_STANDARD_PRINTER /PERSISTENT:YES
; CD to Drive with Dosbox.exe
D:

cd \Programme\DosBox_MB6
dosbox.exe -noconsole -conf D:\Programme\Dosbox_MB6\dosbox.conf
; Next line starts your FPD program
 C:\MyProgram.exe
; End of Bat file

Hope that helps
