    I have a wine working for an application called Infovet that is
written in Visual Basic, i guess (there is a dll called Vbrun200.dll).
Everything but printing works fine.

   I tested with notepad.exe that comes with wine and it worked well.
The printer was detected, kprinter was started and the page is OK.

   Here is my config:

   I'm asking the Infovet creator for more information about version,
routines used to print, etc. Please let know if there is anything

Many thanks in advance,
