Threaded View
I am trying print labels from a networked printer.  Can I use
php_printer.dll with Win XP?

Returned from the webserver:

Unable to load dynamic library 'c:/php/php_printer.dll'- The
specified procedure could not be found.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: printer_open() in
C:\xitami\xitami-24\app\webpages\label_printer_test.php on line 13

In the php.ini:


The actual calling lines from the webpage:

   $handle = printer_open("\engineering\crib_label");
   printer_write($handle, "Text to print");
