(OP)
Please help me on this issue,
  My operating system is winxp sp2 and win2000 with sp4, i have a dos program clipper based..before my o.s. was win98 its work fine when i upgrade into winxp..they cannot show the reports on screen.


RE: Clipper, On Screen Reports not available in WinXP,win2000

We need more information.  Are the two computers hooked together or what? Do have a server?  Are you using Windows or Novell?  What version is your Clipper and your linker?

But, try Alt/Enter to set to full screen first, tell us what happens.

Maybe the problem is the printer, have you configured a printer for lpt1: ?

In XP, there is a compatibility mode program that may help you, try it and see.  The w2000 does not have this program and part of the package.

Try the printer first.

David.

Dear David,
    My printer is working fine and it is configured on LPT1.

 Is There any another method to run that application on win2000?

RE: Clipper, On Screen Reports not available in WinXP,win2000

Ok, you can print through DOS (not Windows) to the printer on lpt1.  Try opening a DOS box and printing some small batch file or text file to the printer; example: "copy autoexec.bat lpt1" and see what happens.

Mr. David,
     yes, I think the problem is with my printer. Because i can not take print from DOS prompt.

  Thanks,

DIPESH
