  • Drivers in the previous thread are for WCE500 and lower.
    Attached update for usbprn.dll (and pcl.dll which is not always part of the image) for WCE600 (ARM based).

  • Hello I tried the first driver on a netdcu 8 with an zebra 2844 label printer. He supports pcl 3 standard but i allways get the Message "Error installing USB driver USBPRN"
    usbprn.dll and pcl.dll are in \\ffsdisk


    i also tried 2-3 other printer but i get the same error.


    Hope somebody solve the same problem...


    thx

  • Hello,
    a) did your try to ease registry and reinstall the driver?
    b) after "printer installation", registry save and reboot does the printer work if you ignore the error message?

  • I use the drivers above to connect a HP Deskjet 5150 (also with a fresh re-install)...then I want to use C++ functions CreateDC/StartDoc/StartPage etc. to generate reports.
    On NetDCU6 this works fine, but on NetDCU8 StartDoc fails with GetLastError=6 (invalid handle).


    Our kernel versions as extracted with SPI_GETPLATFORMVERSION are 1.17 (DCU6) and 1.28 (DCU8)

  • Are the handle for DC is ok?
