How to get Sidekick for Windows 2.0 to print in Wndows XP!

How to get Sidekick for Windows 2.0 to print in Wndows XP!

I bought a newer computer with Windows XP installed. I installed my old but reliable version of Sidekick for Windows, version 2.0. It looked OK, but failed to print at all. Why would it not do so? I have uninstalled via deletion and re-installed several times to no avail. What could the problem be? The printer is my default printer and other printing jobs work, but not with Sidekick.

RE: How to get Sidekick for Windows 2.0 to print in Wndows XP!

Dear NonTech405,
What Happens when you go to
in  Sidekick?
Do you get the Dialog showing the installed Printers?
Then, when you click the setup button after highlighting the printer you wish to use and adjust the properties
that printer becomes the default.
Please post back to let us know how you get on.

Regards Jim
