Windows 7: Help with Brother P-Touch PC printer

Help with Brother P-Touch PC printer

Hi All!
I have a Brother P-Touch PC label printer and I am using Windows 7 32 bit Ultimate. Brother does not have a driver for Windows 7 and it appears neither does Microsoft. Since I have a considerable stock of label cartridges I would love to continue to use this printer. Any ideas on how to make the printer work again?

Thanks in advance, Ed

The printer is called a P-Touch PC or PTPC. Windows never sees the printer

How are you hooking it up to the computer as it looks like it uses a serial port connector? is this the printer you have? it the user manual http://download.brother.com/pub/com/.../pdf/pt_pc.pdf

Yes this the exact printer. I tried installing the printer in multiple ways. I tested COM-1 and the com port is working. In manager it shows the driver on com-1 using update driver. Windows 7 never sees the printer and in add a printer you end up with the 0x00000002 error. I have done a search with Google and can only find others with the same problem. I really my XP! I do have my old XP drive on my computer as well and Microsoft says my hardware will not allow for the use of their Virtual Machine software. Oracle has a VM software package and I have no idea how to tie the old XP hard drive to this software.
