win32prn: OS/2 Windows Printing
Project History
© 2002-2003, Vitaliy Tymchyshyn

The win32prn project is designed to use Microsoft Windows 2000 printer drivers on the IBM OS/2 platform family with the use of the ODIN emulation technology. Theoretically, every Windows Driver Model (WDM) 1.1 compliant printer driver could be used with this project. This includes Windows2000, WindowsXP, Windows2003 and WindowME device drivers.
os2warp.be has agreed with Vitaliy Tymchyshyn (the developer of the tool) to assist in the hardware compatibility testing for this exciting project, which could eventually become a great alternative for the problem of lack of OS/2 drivers for the new printers.
