The following platforms were effected by this bug:
PL-ASSIGN #=DSG!WIN printerThis syntax uses the Win32 AddJob() and SubmitJob() functions to directly generate print files. In order to use this new syntax, PL-DSGW.EXE must be running on a Windows 95 or Windows NT system (Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups do not support the Win32 API). Also, Windows 95 system must be configured with 32-bit PicLan drivers (PL-DEV not loaded in AUTOEXEC.BAT).
This syntax is primarily intended to allow Windows 95 system to spool to local printers, but also works with local printers with Windows NT.
Testing with Windows 95 indicates that this function does not work when printing to non-local printers with Windows 95 or with Windows NT, particularily if the printer resides on a NetWare server. If you are using NetWare print queues, be sure to use the direct NetWare support in the PL-DSGW.EXE program in conjunction with an actual Novell Client.
