[Wine]Re: adding LPT port to wine? Acrobat 5/PDFWriter installation problem

Thank you for your quick reply.

There IS a lpt1 link in ~/.wine/dosdevices, but it was initially linked to a 
/dev devices that actually does not exist on my computer (/dev/lp0).  I 
changed it to the actual parallel port (/dev/lp1), but it still does NOT fix 
the problem.

Should I make changes to ~/.wine/config or win.ini so that wine/windows can 
see this printer port?

Thanks again,
