The Emacs manual has Windows-specific instructions in the node named 
"MS-DOS Printing" (don't be turned off by its name: it's not only for 
DOS).  Did you read that as well?  If so, did you try the port-capture 
method or the "net use" method?

Can you get a text file printed on that machine by typing this from the 
DOS box:

        copy foo.txt lpt1
