	Brady Windows(R) NT / 2000 Printer Driver ver. 2.4
			    January 11, 2002


You should be familiar with your printer and have your printer 
User's Guide available when you set up the v2.4 Windows NT 
Printer Driver.  

In order for the driver to properly operate with the printer, 
you'll need to provide the driver with your printer and media 

To access the printerís setup options, go to the Printer Control 
Panel (from the Start menu select Settings, then Printers), 
right-click on the Printer icon, and select "Document Defaults" 
("Printing Preferences" in Windows 2000). Click the Device tab, 
then make any necessary changes to the printer settings. You 
may need to consult your printer's settings (access your 
printer's settings by printing a Configuration Label or by 
referring to your User's Guide.) Press OK to apply your changes 
and then exit Printer Setup. See the help file for this driver 
for more information on setting up your printer.

Please note that under Windows 2000, the printer's setup is 
accessed through the "Printing Preferences" option (rather 
than "Document Defaults").
The following features have been added to this version:

1) Support for the 200M-e has been added.

2) Support for the 200M-e 300 has been added.

3) Support for the 200MVP has been added. 

4) Support for the 300MVP has been added. 

You may encounter the following problems when using this 
version of the driver:
1) Delta-shadowing when using printer resident fonts in a 
shaded cell (anytime they intersect with GDI data)

2)Zebra Scalable (printer resident font) support is limited to 
the lower 127 ASCII characters.

3) WYSIWYG for printer resident fonts may be slightly shifted. 
For example, a code 39 barcode that is centered on screen will 
print slightly to the right of center.

4)Some applications may not display or print the native fonts 
or barcodes. It some cases, it may be necessary to close the 
application being used, set the driver as the  default driver, 
and then restart the application in order to get the native fonts 
and barcodes to function correctly. It may also be necessary to 
change the font size. 

5)The driver installs set to Thermal Transfer media type. This 
means that the Windows Test Page initially prints using Thermal 
Transfer media instructions. If your printer is loaded with 
Direct Thermal media (no ribbon loaded) this will produce an error 
at the printer. The printer error should be cleared by the user.
The driver should then be set to "Direct Thermal" on the 
"Device" tab in the setup dialog. 


If you are upgrading from a previous version of our Windows NT 
printer driver, we recommend that you delete all existing 
instances of the old driver before proceeding to install the 
new version.  For Windows 2000 compatibility, the structure of 
the driver has been altered slightly, and will not work properly
with existing installs of a previous version.
