There is an old DOS application that spawns an external Windows MFC based
program passing data to it. The purpose of the external Windows application
is to print the data passed from DOS program on any printer using Win
The problem - when the printing application is spawned from under DOS (as
intended) the printing process takes an incredibly long time! Each line (on
ink jet printer) is rendered nearly a minute!!! However, when the program is
started standalone it prints normally, almost immediately after print
command as it should be... The program prints normally even if running
standalone while DOS application is loaded in memory at the same time.
Visually the program prits while spawned like MS Word when the background
printing is set in its options.
Does anybody know how to force the program to print faster whiloe spawned in
this scenario? Is there any hint where to look for the information?
Thanks in advance, Alexander.
