    16Bit programme using NTVDM on Win10 32Bit cannot see shared printers


    Hello all,

    I have a 16bit programme that is very important to us and is in use in multiple locations. Normally we use Windows XP but recently many clients want to upgrade to Windows 10. We have found that the programme works well on Windows 10 32Bit using NTVDM, but it is unable to "see" any shared printers. That is to say, the printers can be seen in the Command Prompt using NETVIEW and the printers are listed as we would expect, but they cannot be seen by the 16Bit programme.

    I'm hoping that this might be a problem that somebody else has already resolved somehow. All thoughts and suggestions welcomed

    Cheers, James

    See this thread for a useful discussion of the 16-bit issue: Solved Does 16 bit work yet on a 64 bit windows 10 OS? - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums. I believe you can print from DOSbox, even to network printers, if you switch over from NTVDM to DOSbox, as explained in this thread: printing - How can I print with DosBox? - Super User.

    Thank you Ed, that's very helpful. I'll give DOSBox a try.

    You're welcome. Printing from VMs and/or emulators is always an interesting proposition.
