    Default How to print a PRN file in Windows XP?

    I've searched the internet, I've found advice to go into CMD and type "copy xxxx.prn LPT1 /B" but that doesn't do anything. I've even tried "copy xxxx.prn USB001 /B" but still nothing.

    I didn't expect printing a PRN file would be a challenge, I've tried dragging the files into msword still nothing.

    These are files that I've printed to file and all I want to do is print them. Can anyone figure this out please? Thank you.

    I'm guessing this is the Google result you found. Here's an MS article, but it doesn't look like it says much more.

    I don't know, maybe I can help you more when it's not 2:00 AM...

    Thanks for trying. I posted on CNET, someone over there knew a tiny freeware program that did the job, heres the quote:

    I just did this, I know it works.
    I have a USB connected HP printer, but it should also work with a parallel printer.
    I also used it on my networked printer.

    Get PrintFile.

    I created a PRN file, and placed the PRN file on my desktop.
    I created a PS (PostScript) file and also placed it on my desktop.
    I then used PrintFile to send the PRN file on my USB connected HP printer. It printed fine.
    I also then used PrintFile to send the PS file to my networked PostScript printer. It printed fine.
