I'm not completely certain what the limit is on a printer name but I do know it can't be more than 55 because that's all that would fit in the .cfg entry. I do believe that 41 is probably OK. If this is Comet16 the info you're seeing in the QMONITOR DS display for driver program is a probably bug in QMONITOR. The call it uses to get the printer only returns the first 40 characters or so, followed by the DES name.
Anyway, when you click on the "Printers" hyperlink in QMONITOR is your printer listed? What Comet error do you get if you try to OPEN it? If you really think the printer name length is an issue, have you considered changing it's name thru Windows? Instead of name length is it possible it's some unusual character in the printer name?
