I don't see where you tried the "Cont feed no break" setting like I see at http://www.frogmorecs.com/arts/using_the_generic_driver.html
In closing, I have no way to test this and I didn't read if you called Microsoft.
If you are not using the text only printer, I see no cure.
I have an issue with an IBM 4232 Dot Matrix printer on Windows 2000 server. It used to be attached to an NT server and worked normally. But now after migrating it to Windows 2000 server SP4 it does a form feed after every print job, thus leaving blank pages in between print outs.
On the NT server the printer was configured as such:
Driver: Text Generic
Print Processer: RAW
Spool Documents so program finishes printing faster: Start Printing Imediately
Enable Advanced printing features
Use Letter paper
On the 2000 server the same settings were used as above, but the issue occured.
I have worked with IBM tech support with no resolution:
We tried the following:
Print Processor: NT EMF 1.003
Setting the driver to and IBM Proprinter XL III
Having the paper to US STD FAN Fold.
The application printing the Data has not changed once moved to 2000 server. Also, the printer was not reconfigured in any way prior or after migration to windows 2000 server.
Is there any setting or command that can stop a form feed after any print job on an IBM 4232 Dot Matrix printer?
