I need to print labels on a dedicated label printer using an ancient version of Quickreport.

I have an application I originally developed in Delphi 3. I recompiled it in Delphi 5 Pro with Quickreport 3.05, with mercifully few changes required, and I haven't worked on it since!

It has been chugging along merrily for many years, running on a Windows XP machine and printing labels on a dot matrix printer using an LQ1000 driver.

We are now forced to move into the 21st century. I've got the application running OK on Windows 10, again with virtually no changes required, and the only thing left is to buy a suitable label printer and get the application to print to it.

I really don't want to get involved in setting up a newer development environment as I have retired from software development many years ago, but I need to help out my last remaining customer who is still running my software.

In the current system that has been running on Windows XP I have been using Page.Length set to 2.000in and Page.PaperSize set to Custom.

Will Quickreport 3.05 print to a dedicated label printer on Windows 10? Any advice gratefully received!
