printing with dac easy payroll dos version--laser printer on usb port

    I have Dac Easy Payroll Version 8 for DOS. I am using a laserjet 6L
    parallel port printer , HP Media Center Computer that does NOT have a
    parallel printer port. I am able to print virtually everything using
    a USB to Parallel Printer Cable.

    However, DAC EASY, being an older version, has provision for printing
    to an LPT or Serial Port, but not to a USB port.

    I am therefore stymied as to how to print from the DAC Easy program.
    I was not aware before purchasing the HP computer that they no longer
    have parallel printer ports.

    Any suggestions as to how I may print from the program? The new
    DACEASY programs cost 10 times more than the older DOS programs.

    sincerely, Aaron

    Just a thought, check online for a parallel expansion port to add to
    your computer.
