Memory issue with DOS based application

Hi,

I'm running a DOS based application on Windows XP. Opening the program and navigating through the application menu's is not a problem. The brick wall I've hit is when I try to print within the DOS application. I get the following error message: "NOT ENOUGH MEMORY. Press Any Key to Continue".
I had Windows 7 installed on this same PC a couple of days ago and I was able to print. I've had to go back to Windows XP for other reasons and now I've hit this blocker. I've tried doing the same thing on another XP and vista machine and I get the same error.

Not sure if the following will assist:

------------- --------------------- -------------
MSDOS 12000 ( 11.7K) 2EE0
KBD 3296 ( 3.2K) CE0
HIMEM 1248 ( 1.2K) 4E0
MOUSE 12528 ( 12.2K) 30F0
COMMAND 3616 ( 3.5K) E20
COMMAND 4224 ( 4.1K) 1080
MSCDEXNT 464 ( 0.5K) 1D0
REDIR 2672 ( 2.6K) A70
DOSX 34848 ( 34.0K) 8820
PRN2FILE 7136 ( 7.0K) 1BE0
FREE 112 ( 0.1K) 70
FREE 572848 (559.4K) 8BDB0

Total FREE : 572960 (559.5K)

Total bytes available to programs : 572960 (559.5K)
Largest executable program size : 572000 (558.6K)

15728640 bytes total contiguous extended memory
0 bytes available contiguous extended memory
15375360 bytes available XMS memory
MS-DOS resident in High Memory Area

If there is any other information that is required, let me know and I will get it.

Thanks
