Program a Zebra S600 Label printer

Program a Zebra S600 Label printer

Program a Zebra S600 Label printer

I have an application that I created in Delphi 6 that
needs to have a feature to print out barcode labels.  I have
a Zebra S600 connected to the LPT1 port on my computer.

The printer passes the self tests.  I downloaded the ZPL
programming manuals from Zebra.  In the tutorial it had me
create a basic label and save it to tut1.txt.  Then it said
to go to a Dos box and type:

c:\ copy tut1.txt LPT1:

and the label should print.  In my case nothing happens.  If
I print from Barone - lite it works fine.

I am running Win98SE.

any ideas on how to get this working or links to docs that
will help in printing from Delphi to Zebra.

thanks in advance,

I guess you opened tut1.txt to see what's in it?

because I created tut1.txt and its content.

RE: Program a Zebra S600 Label printer

Try this
Open Barone lite. Print to a file instead of the printer.
such as C:\Sample.txt

Then open a command prompt and type this
Copy C:\Sample.txt LPT1

it should print too.

Then try to change your Delphi code to print the sample too.
