I'm using Windows XP Pro and have a Canon printer connected to a USB Virtual printer Port. Everthing works fine except I have and old DOS program that only likes to print to a LPT1 port. Is there any way of mapping the LPT1 port to the USB port?

You could try setting "Print directly to printer" and see if that works.

Untried but worth a look?

XP doesnt have DOS, only a DOS emulator. That could be an advantage in this case however, as "real DOS" has no knowledge of USB.
