Hi Gary,What kind of serial

Hi Gary,

What kind of serial cable are you using?

Are you able to communicate at all with the printer over serial?

Hi GregWe are using a null

Hi Greg

We are using a null modem serial cable and yes we are able to communicate to the the printer over the serial port. We printed a label from Zebra Designer 2.

When we copied the files from Zebra Setup Utilities over the USB Port

The autoexec files seems to copy okay, but when we copied the source “zbi” file the printer prints out part of the file

Namely

855 PRINT #2 : "^XA"

856 PRINT #2 : "^FO50,50^ADN,36,20^FD" & PRINTLINE$(1) & "^FS"

857 PRINT #2 : "^FO50,70^ADN,36,20^FD" & PRINTLINE$(2) & "^FS"

858 PRINT #2 : "^XZ"

I assume that it sees a label format command

Gary,My apologies for the

Gary,

My apologies for the late response.

What printer model are you working with and what is the firmware version running on it?

Also, what are the contents of your autoexec file?
