problem solved so if anyone having same problem try this.... works with xp but not sure about others.....

In Windows
1) Install the printer in windows.
2) Close all programs
3) Click on "Start"
4) Choose "Settings" then "Printers and Faxes"
All of your printers should now be listed.
5) Do a "right mouse" click on your printers name
6) Choose "Properties" from the popup menu
7) Click on the "Ports" tab at the top
8) Write down the name of your USB port name (just incase)
9) Click on the "Enable Printer Pooling" checkbox
Note: This should put a checkmark in that box.
10) Now scroll up or down through all of your listed ports
and click on the "LPT1" port to place a checkmark in it.
Note: You should now have 2 ports selected - USB & LPT1
11) Click on “Advanced” tab.
12) Click on “Print Processor..” button.
13) Select “TEXT” from “Default datatype:” list.
14) Click “OK”
15) Click on "Apply" and "Ok".
16) Restart your program and try printing.
