We have a Point of Sale (cash register) program that runs in a DOS window on Windows95 and Windows98 systems.

To open the cash drawer, the DOS application sends a signal to an attached Epson-T5000 receipt printer (parallel printer on LPT1), which opens the cash drawer.

When we run the program on an Windows XP system, all print jobs go through the spooler (spoolsv.exe) and both the receipt printing and the cash drawer opening are delayed by about 1 minute.

I need a solution that will bypass or speed up the print spooler to instantly open the drawer and print the receipt.
