I can't print ZPL, only EPL (zm400)

Hi, I've managed to write a code that prints a label with data from a product (name, price,ID,barcode) using ZPL, everything was working fine but today I reconected the printer to my laptop and automatically erased my old printer device and added a new one "ZDesigner ZM400 200 DPI (EPL)".

Hi Jose, I think you need to uninstall the driver first.  Then you can re-install the correct one.  Windows is pretty dumb when it comes to this stuff.  It will continue to use the same driver for the same printer it detects. It knows the serial number of the printer.

This article shows how to uninstall the printer driver that is causing issues or change the driver on the printer: Remove or Uninstall a Printer Driver from Windows 7/8/10
