RE: Accuvote-TS registry

I have installed a serial thermal printer on com4 and can print reports, however the label, after a download, is not being printed.
Can someone provide a description of the registry functionality for avts, by key?
Is the label print function hardcoded for Lpt1?
The PrinterComPort value the registry is ignored if PrintReverse is 0, so even though you have PrinterComPort set to COM4, AVTS reporting doesn't actually use it.  What it does is use either the default printer, or puts up a standard print dialog, depending on the DefaultPrinter registry entry.
That is except for printing labels, which always uses PrinterComPort.  Problem is that your thermal label printer requires a windows driver (I bet) so it just drops on the floor the ASCII being sent to it for the label.
I spare further commentary.  In short, ENOSUP, but it should be if we are going to use these printers.
