Frank,

> Need to know how to print a Prn file on Windows XP

Open a "Command Prompt" and type:

COPY filename.prn LPT1: (if it is local)

or

COPY filename.prn \\Computer\Printer (if it is networked)

Kind regards,

This works ONLY if the printer is the same model and uses the same driver as
tthe computer that generated the prn file. (Unless it happened to be a
postscript printer using a postscript driver). The other exception to the
rule is a text printer using a text printer driver.

In this case, using Printfil, you can print it to ANY Windows printer,
including virtual ones (WinFax, PDF Writers etc.)

I generally do not advertise commercial or crippled shareware programs.
