Windows 7: Canon Driver

Canon Driver

It seems like this is an impossible task.

I work at a non-profit (read: no budget) and our 3 computers crashed. We got a new laptop donated and everything is installed on it. However, we cannot find a driver for our copier:

Canon GP 200

Which supports Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

HELP!

We cannot afford a new printer and everything is set aside from this... anyone?

Hi sunnyslope, Welcome to the forums, I'm afraid doing a quick search failed to find a driver for the printer after 2005 and that was for win2000/XP Canon U.S.A. : Support & Drivers : GP200 you may be able to try to install these drivers in compatibility mode

I'm not too familiar with compatibility mode... as I own a Mac for my personal use.

Is there a place (web page) I can go for more information relating to this?

I found that no drivers were released after 2005 myself.

I'm at wit's end...

I'm not getting anywhere in compatibility mode... states it is incompatible. Should I:

a) Try to find a universal driver
b) Downgrade the OS to XP?

sunnyslope I dont think you will find a universal driver, you could try running the printer from XP mode within Win 7 Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup or partion the hard drive and dual boot win 7 with XP Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP hope this is of help to you

But if you read all the thread you will see that Canon have not released a Win 7 driver for this printer. They probably consider it is too old.

Thanks pebbly for those recommendations.

Ideally, I wanted to be able to run the program in XP mode but we do not have a version of 7 that supports it.

SO.... I'm going to try to install XP as well as it seems that is the last resort.
