I am having problems getting my cash drawer to operate from EzPower. I am using an epson TM-T81 printer on Windows XP.
I have set it to "open connected to printer" and i am testing using the open drawer button.
The drawer works fine when connecting not using Ezpower or the printer.
The properties of my printer do not have a"printer commands area", so cannot attempt that solution.
When selecting OPOS as an option, and clicking open drawer. i get a print out on the printer " %%".
My printer is connected via usb and prints fine, listed as LPT1.

LPT is a parallel port?  USB is a serial port so that doesn't make sense.  There is only two place you need to set, Settings / Printer & Equipment (Drawer: Open Connected to Printer).  Settings / Payment Methods, check the Open box for each payment type.

OK to the that.  I have attached pics showing my settings for EzPos and my printer.

Did you enter that open drawer command string?  It looks different from I've used before.  These are the settings I'm used to seeing but I haven't had to even look at this in a decade.
Epson printers:
Open Drawer: <1B><70><30><3C><78><00>
Open Drawer: <1B><70><00><19><64> (MMF drawers)

BTW - most people use the Generic Text Only driver which comes Windows.  It's faster but doesn't print graphics.

Have tried the codes you provided, though it would not allow me to enter the <> so left a space instead.  Also tried 27,112,0,25,250 which i got from http://keyhut.com/popopen.htm (  no commas or chevrons as they would not enter ).  However, with this code the send command box in the printer properties would not accept the code. On clicking apply it just added some digits I expect to conform with formatting code.
I would rather not use the Generic Text Only driver, as I wish to keep my logo printing.
I will take my printer to my local POS hardware shop to test there.

Windows 10 printing.
If you have more than one printer (like receipt printer and kitchen printer), you must open the Windows Control Panel / Printers and select one of your printers as the default.  You'll get a message that Windows will no longer manage your printers.  That's a good thing.

We have always really liked the BIXOLON, most notably the SRP 350 PLUS III has been great

Most likely, if the cash register is connected to the printer open the Settings / Printer & Equipment.  Select "Open Connected to Printer".

Check the Settings / Payment Methods.  The Open drawer boxes should be set.  Otherwise, that is all the settings.
