We are looking for a VB6 programmer who is able to review, understand and reprogram some printer software to allow the selection of printers to the end user. Currently the system has one printer hard coded and this is likely to be replaced due to its age. Our client requires us to code the software so it will allow end users to select which printer they wish to use to overcome this single point of failure going forward.
Here is a summary of the issue from the client.
"We have an issue with the HP LaserJet printer PIMS system prints are directed to. PIMS system prints are hardcoded to print to an HP Printer and we were fortunately able to get PIMS to work with the large HP Printer.
It has been reporting issues and we suspect it won’t be too long before it dies. I would suggest we need to redevelop PIMS printing to allow the selection of a Printers or for prints to be coded to a newer more reliable printer."
We have access to the client's system to fix the issue.
I need someone who has experience in this type of work, who is available quickly and who is very professional. You will be working on one of our clients systems and representing our company. Initially I need you to be able to access the system / code and provide me with an estimate, (no. of hours), you will need to fix the issue. You must have good feedback and number of hours on Upwork to receive the work.
This is likely to start early next week.
