When running Citect under Windows 95/98, some printers may lock Citect during printing or when they have run out of paper. This only affects printers connected to LPTX.DOS and of type ASCII_DEV. 

To enable the fix add the following line to your Citect.ini file.


Please note that after making the above change, if you have a network printer captured to LPT1, 2, or 3, you will need to enter the full network pathname to the printer in the Citect device properties Filename field.

CIT has confirmed this to be a problem in Citect for Windows versions 4.00 to 5.21. This problem has been fixed in version 5.21 Service Pack G.
