You need to load GhostView and GhostScript. The software
is freeware and is available for Windows, Mac, OS/2, and Unix.
The URL to download is:
I'm running Windows 95 and have it running on my machine.
Change the file extension from .prn to .ps. When you
generate .prn files in a Windows program, you can assign it
a .ps extension without renaming the file later. In the filename
box, add quotes around the filename. For example: "test.ps".
The file will be test.ps regardless of what is listed in the
file type box.
If you have questions or problems loading the software,
you can write me directly. I'll do what I can to help.
