How can I configure auto printing in Vijeo Citect 7.40 so that whenever an alarm is triggered on my dot matrix printer.

Below is a procedure how to configure a printer to print alarm. 

Go to project editor >> System >>  Devices and define the LPT1DOS device as below :- 

Name: LPT1DOS 
Format: {TIME,8}^t{TAG,10}^t{NAME,20}^t{COMMENT,30} 
File name: LPT1.DOS 
Type: ASCII_DEV 

Now in the alarm categories define this device in log section. 
This will directly printout alarms on the LPT port. 

The following parameter should be set in the citect.ini (or via Computer Setup Editor): 
[Device]LptToSpool = FALSE
