Hello Anny and Everyone!
SignWriter DOS is an old program that was developed long before your
new Epson printer was manufactured. So sometimes getting new printers
to work with old software is hard...especially when the old software is
in DOS...And ink-jet printers do have problems, sometimes, with
SignWriter DOS, and the Epson Stylus Color 740 is an ink-jet printer.
SignWriter DOS works best with laser printers. However, do not give up
hope. Here are some suggestions:
1. If you go to this instruction page:
SignWriter DOS Instruction Documents
2. Download Document 1: Getting Started.
On page 5, 6, 7 and 8 in this document, you can read how to set up your
printer to work with SignWriter DOS.
Try this and write again to tell us what happens...If it does not work,
there are other alternatives, but I will wait to hear from you first...
Please post your message to the SignWriting List, so we all learn
Thanks for writing!
