Placing the breakpoint anywhere prior to the 'end;' of the
'try...finally...end;' block allows the printer to print as expected.

Obviously, the executable can't print.

I took the example in the package and tweaked it slightly for my
usage; I' not really sure what parameters I need to pass to the
printer, but 9600 for the baud, seemed reasonable, I suppose I could
use 7 bits because I am sending ASCII strings, N for the parity
because I can't see that parity is required, and the others seemed

I'm afraid that it makes no difference...
