Hello,
 
I`m sorry. I`m not sure I understand you correctly. Could you please provide me with more information about your purpose and your environment?  
 
As far as I understand you need a USB-to-Serial converter to print from COM port application to USB printer (application and the printer are located on one computer).Am I right?

Yes your right
I have a windows 7 computer
1 Epson USB printer
Works just fine in windows.
 
No i have a application that only prints to COM1
 
So i need that application to be able to print to the USB Epson Printer
But the printer should still work for Windows with USB
 
Hope that makes it clearer Smiley

I regret to inform you that our product "Serial Port Redirector" will not help you in this situation. And unfortunately we don`t have a program that converts serial data to USB.  
 
I can offer you to buy any physical USB-to-Serial Adapter(converter)  and to connect your printer to COM port with the help of this adapter. In this case printer will be available for your serial application and as a usual printer on the computer.  
 
Good luck!
