VB6 With Dymo Version 8 DLS and SDK

VB6 With Dymo Version 8 DLS and SDK

VB6 With Dymo Version 8 DLS and SDK

We have a VB6 application that has successfully printed custom labels on Dymo printers for several years on XP systems with Dymo Version 6 DLS and SDK software. Now, under Version 8 of the Dymo software on Windows 7 systems the application does not work -- what gets printed is the default Dymo mailing address label instead of our custom label. Further, Dymo has not provided VB6 sample code for their current software.

A file with our current code is attached. Can anyone provide direction regarding modification, or provide VB6 sample code? Thanks.

RE: VB6 With Dymo Version 8 DLS and SDK

Problem solved. Despite Dymo SDK documentation to the contrary, DLS and SDK Version 8 software cannot open .LWT (Template) files. .LWT files must be converted to .LWL files for use with Version 8 on Windows 7 systems. This can be done with previous Dymo software (e.g. Version 6.1 that was used on XP systems) by using Save As and specifying the .LWL extension.
