Printer Driver Ver.
The HDT47x2 Printer Driver can be used for IBM 4712, IBM 4722 printers (please note that the REMS unit is not supported!) and IBM printers that support 4722 emulation (models 4009, 9068, 9069, 9055-002, Jarfalla BP24, etc.).
This software can be installed only on
Windows 95/98, and on PC (Intel processor or compatible) hardware
environment. The IBM printer must be serial connected to the PC and
MUST have Ucode level 6.01 or higher.
You can find below the scheme for making the connection cable between computer and IBM 47x2 printer.
HDT47x2 Printer Driver comes with resident printer fonts. For example, you can see this fonts when you:
HDT47x2 prints graphics with only 8 pins of the printer head. This is limitation of the IBM printer model 47x2. Because of that the printing speed and quality is average. If you print only text, we recommend using "Prestige" printer fonts for fastest printing.
In your Windows folder you can find HDT47x2.INI file. In this INI file you can specify following settings:
In the [Messages] section:
- ShowMessages variable tells the driver to show messages in a message box. Set this variable to 1 if you want to see messages and respond to them. Otherwise set this variable to 0.
- ShowExceptionMessages variable tells the driver to show error messages due to which the printing has stopped. Set this variable to 1 if you want to see this messages. Otherwise set to 0.
In the [Buffer] section:
- Length variable tells the driver how
big buffer to allocate for printing documents. This variable is set
to 512 bytes by default. Using this variable in conjunction with UseBuffer=1
can vastly improve printing speed. You can experiment with the size
of the buffer. It is always better to set the buffer size to 512 or
1024 bytes, because if the buffer is set to a larger size, when the
printer is stopped its internal buffer might still not be empty, and
when the next printing starts the printer could print some garbage.
To uninstall the printer driver, go to the Printers folder and delete the printer. After that, start Regedit and delete the following registry key if it is not deleted:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\HDT 47x2 Port Monitor]
Restart the computer.
Delete following files from your Windows
1. Printer fonts. The correct shapes
of the printer fonts typefaces are not implemented on the screen fonts.
It means that even though the font typefaces look as standard on the
screen, you will still have the correct typeface on the printout.
