i have an old laser printer "bloom Laser 1600+" for which i have win xp drivers. I didn't found these drivers for windows 7 64 bit anywhere online, not even in company's website "wepindia.com". when i try to install winxp drivers in win7 it gives an error as

AddPrintProcessor failed
pPathName: WIMFPR_N.DLL
pPrintProcessorName: WIMFPR_N
The operation completed successfully.

but it remains as unspecified device in "devices and printers" and it is not recognized as printer.

plz help.

Likely a not supported device in Windows 7, it happens, key word: OLD

I have USB connection, video camera that was DOA on 7 also.

Specific 7 driver or possibly a Vista, but a XP driver? Dead end right there.

Looked further and found:

Operating Systems Supported
Windows 2000 Workstation, Windows 2000 Server, Windows XP Home, Windows XP Professional, Windows 2003 Server

Printer is circa 2005, so I am not too surprised, no driver means potential SALES!

I spent $99 on a Brother Laser Printer last year (HL-2270DW) when I found it on sale down from $149, it's so good, I went back and got a spare, and still on #1, by no means a heavy use printer, but it's 17PPM and perfect for my meager needs.

^Possible solution if you need a budget black and white laser printer, I was quite thrilled with it.

What you could do, of course, is to cretae a virtual machine with VM Ware, install Win XP and then your printer! You will be able to swop files easily enough between Win 7 and Win XP!
Am curious though why you are running the most expensive version of Windows 7?

Are you saying that the Ultimate version came with the PC as according to my research the best it was ever shipped with was Windows 7 Pro? What is on the COA stcker?
