Trouble Printing from GNU Emacs 20.7.1 on WinXP

Like them user who posted the msg "Printing from Emacs" at some point last
week, I'm having trouble setting up GNU Emacs 20.7.1 to print.

I downloaded a zipped package of "w32-print" .el files from the website
ref'd under "Tech Specs" to help with invoking printing.

What I want to print: nothing complicated. I just want to be able to print
plain-text, straight from Emacs.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!


----- Tech Specs -----
                 OS: WinXP Pro
            Printer: HP Deskjet 712C ("HP712C") on LPT1:
                     (No software for Postscript or Ghostcript - is there
any for HP?)
          EmacsVers: GNU 20.7.1
                     (Yes, I need to upgrade...)
"w32-print" Package: zipped package "w32-print-1_13_4"

----- Methods for invoking "print-buffer," and Result -----
1. M-x print-buffer --> Nothing happens.
    <*Messages* Buffer>

2. Tools>Print>Print-Buffer  -OR-  M-x w32-print-buffer

;; ----- "Print" Code in my .emacs file: -----

(defvar my-site-lisp  (concat (getenv "emacs_dir") "/site-lisp"))

  (add-to-list 'load-path (concat my-site-lisp "/w32-print-1_13_4"))


   ;; General
   w32-print-use-faces nil            ; disable color, etc

   w32-print-enable-keymappings nil   ; disable keyboard shortcuts
   w32-print-lpr-draft-prefix ""

   ;; Plain printer
   w32-print-lpr-destination "LPT1"
   w32-print-lpr-path (concat my-site-lisp "/w32-print-1_13_4/bin")

  ;; Use it
  (load "w32-print")
