Question 2 instances of same printer


Can you install two different instances of the same printer, each using a different driver? I have a program that requires a different driver, so I want to be able to just select which printer to use when printing from that app.

TIA,
Fred

Sure can. Different name, different driver, doesn't matter, just goes to a different spool that connects to the same port.
