As I haven't seen any answers, I will answer it:

Some .EPS files are hard to open, but this trick has always worked
for me. Instead of printing the file to your PostScript printer, try
to copy it with the DOS command COPY. If e.g. your file is
c:\mydir\myfile.eps and your postscript printer is connected to
LPT1:, use the DOS command
COPY c:\mydir\myfile.eps LPT1:
The printer will then print the file.
