This article discusses the “Printfil” software utility that can be used to make a MS DOS based application re-direct output meant for the LPT port to a modern Windows host printer.

Believe it or not, there are a lot of people out there who are still using MS DOS based programs in the age of Windows. Computers and printers with parallel ports haven’t been manufactured in years, but MS DOS based programs always print to them by default. So what’s a MS DOS based application holdout to do for a dependable printed invoice or report?

Never fear, the cavalry is here: “Printfil” by @SwIt. This is a handy software utility that redirects printer output from the LPT port seen by a MS DOS program to the newer Windows based host printer. Just go to http://www.printfil.com/english.htm to download the free trial version. After installing the setup program, it will take you through an 8 step configuration routine so it knows how you want it to redirect printed output.

After right clicking the “Printfil” icon in the lower right area of the Windows task bar, you will notice 2 options under the “Configuration” option. The “Guided” option is the same as that mentioned previously, while “Standard” is a small dialog screen showing your configuration settings. The “Capture port” option specifies the parallel printer port that output will be rerouted from (you may choose from LPT1 through  LPT9). The “Printer” option specifies the Windows host printer that the parallel port will redirect printed output to. There are other little things you can also configure, but these 2 are the most important.

When you print something from a MS DOS program in conjunction with “Printfil”, it will pause for a few seconds before it displays the printed document in its preview window. From here you can easily print the preview to the printer. And believe it or not, “Printfil” also works within a Windows virtual machine like "Oracle VirtualBox".

This really is a terrific and versatile utility for overcoming today’s MS DOS printing challenges. If you absolutely have to use a MS DOS programming package, then “Printfil” by @SwIt may be something worth looking into.
