USB Printers under DOS

Question

I just installed a Lexmark USB printer and all Windows applications print just fine. I have one DOS application that still trys to print to the parallel port. The old parallel printer no longer works. There is no Windows version for the DOS application but it still serves me well.

Question, is it possible for a DOS application to print to a USB printer?

Thanks,

Jerry

I did a bit of sleuthing on the net and found this workaround for DOS: http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/winprint.html#usbprint

I don't know if the solution works.

Good luck.
