LPRINT statement

LPRINT statement

LPRINT statement

I am using the following statement or instruction in my qbasic program.
When I try to run the program, for the first time after booting up my computer, it stops running at this instruction and displays the following message:

"the program tried to execute an invalid instruction.
fault location 00228:0103
interrups in service   none"

If I start and run the program a second time it runs "ok".

What can be wrong? Why does it not work the first time I run the program?

When I was using windows 98 operating system my prigram worked all the time. I just installed windows me and now I have the above problem.

Any help would be appreciated

RE: LPRINT statement

Trying going into your BIOS and setting your printer port to STANDARD or BIDIRECTIONAL, not ECP or EPP.

Or vice versa..  That is the first step to try when you have strange printing problems.

RE: LPRINT statement

It could also be a driver issue. The printer ports in DOS are emulated through the printer's Windows-based driver.
