Hello Angel - Are you referring to the OSX_BS4X.MOD, OSX_BS4X-P6.MOD, OSX_BS4X-P7.MOD ? If, so which one or all three ?
Those are 3 different versions of the same OSX module, you only need to load 1 of them. The 2 versions with the "-P6" and "-P7" are used when you want to load OSX into a specific page (in these cases, obviously 6 and 7). There are some scenarios where this is desired, but often it's not, so I'd say start with the "regular" one, it load more like you expect it to.

Angel's experience and expertise led to creating these special versions as they allow more granular control of loading modules which is sometimes needed for advanced module installation configurations.

Without PRTOFF, the only way to disable printing is to unplug the module in Settings, which is cumbersome and cannot be programmed. Otherwise, the only other option is to edit the program to prompt the user for a yes or no answer as whether the program should disable printing, even if a printer appears to be present due to flag 55 being set.
55
FS? IND X
TF (in the OS/X module)

et voilá!
I just activated the OS/X module, and when I execute 55 TF IND X, I get NONEXISTENT, whereas 55 FS? IND X results in YES.

Try with:

FS? 55
TF 55

Try with:

FS? 55
TF 55
FS? 55 --> YES
TF? 55 --> 55.0000

Oh gee...
Try FS? 55 now, it should say: NO

And that's TF 55, not TF? 55

Something's wrong there.
On my part it is:
FS? 55 ---> YES
TF 55 ---> (previous content of X)
FS? 55 ---> NO

On my side it is still

FS? 55 ---> YES
TF 55 ---> (previous content of X)
FS? 55 ---> YES

So, flag 55 is still set after executing TF 55
Specifically, it is XEQ [ALPHA] TF [ALPHA] 55

Same here, flag 55 is still set. I have tried it interactively and in a program with both the same result.

To me, it doesn't make sense to support a module for a printer you can't connect to the 41X while not supporting a module for a printer you can connect.
My point, exactly.
