TT Printer Conflict

TT Printer Conflict

TT Printer Conflict

I'm using a a few older Thermal Transfer printers in a legacy application, with a legacy application (EZ-Label).  Both a Zebra Z-3000 and a DATAMAX Prodigy Plus.

The software has it's own internal drivers which are (of course) much faster than the Windows (2000) drivers.

However, I would also like the ability to print from Access or Excel or whatnot.  Here's my problem:  I can't have the Windows printer driver installed, and still allow the legacy software to use it's internal drivers.  This is because the Windows drivers completely take over the COM port.

Am I the only one with this problem?

Try contacting Tharo (Easylabels maker) or Zebra
