Printer Problems (W95)

Hello there,

I've been writing a program recently (in Tp7) which needs to run under
the MS-DOS shell in Windows 95. Which it does.

Until... you try to print.

I've tried using many different printer units and this problem still

If the printer is offline or inaccessible, then Windows 95 still keeps
trying to print. It brings up a requester and if you click "Cancel" it
crashes the pascal program.

Does anyone have a printer unit which can get around this problem? I
have looked in the SWAG archive and none of them have helped.

I'd appreciate any help you could give,
