PAF 3/4 used Ascii/Ansel character sets which is a DOS carry over to Windows. These worked fine with printers. However, PAF5 uses the Unicode character set which presents some problems with older printers because their printer device drivers are not compatible. Windows OS provided better printer device drivers to were compatible than the ones that came with the printer. Start with Windows OS and use their printer device driver for your printer. Printer vendor also would upgrade their drivers and put them on the Internet to download.
