  • POS for .NET is what you want to use to program the application:

    There is an eBook that provides an introduction and examples that include a receipt printer: http://www.annabooks.com/Book_PGPOS.html

  • Did you run the TestApp.EXE that comes with the PSO for .NET SDK? There is a simulated POS Printer that can be used for development. If you have a POS Printer, you should install a Service Object or OPOS driver to interface to POS for .NET

    My eBook is the best guide on this: http://www.annabooks.com/Book_PGPOS.html.
