Whats the Difference between Windows XP and Windows 98....when it
comes to the win32 extensions to python? I used the win32ui and
win32com.client modules to print to a printer from windows. the output
from the XP machine comes out fine, but the output from the 98 machine
looses its formating. I am using a Smart Label Printer 200. this label
printer has drivers for all windows family OS's.
does anybody have an idea as to what is going on?
thanks
Naveed

    If the SLP200 is connected via a serial (COM) port it may be to do
    with the COM port settings under Windows 98. Make sure the COM port
    settings are:

    Bits per second: 9600
    Data bits: 8
    Parity: None
    Stop bits: 1
    Flow Control Xon/Xoff

    "Use FIFO buffering" should be enabled

    If you are connected via USB, then it may be the difference between
    the "dodgy" USB drivers in Win98 and the better USB drivers in XP. Try
    updating your USB drivers for Win98.
