win$printer on Windows7

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 29 June 2011]

Hello
We are running an app on an XP machine that calls win$printer. It works fine.
When we try to run it on a Windows7 machine, it runs but the "Printer..." button is missing.
Is there a new version of win$printer for Windows7 or are there any settings to make the current one work
on Windows7?

Thanks

Not sure what version you are using - if before 8.1.2 then you may need ECN-3922

RE: win$printer on Windows7

Hello,

I had this same problem and called for resolving the WIN$PRINTER with the parameter 17 instead of 2, example:

78 WINPRINT-SETUP VALUE 2.
78 WINPRINT-SETUP-OLD VALUE 17.

Before: call "win$printer" using winprint-setup,
Now: call "win$printer" using winprint-setup-old,
