Windows 7: Epson Stylus Pro 7000 Windows 7 Compatibility

Epson Stylus Pro 7000 Windows 7 Compatibility

Hi,

Can anyone help me out with printing to my Epson Stylus Pro 7000 from windows 7 64 bit?

There is no Vista or windows 7 driver available so I have tried running the XP driver in compatibility mode but I don't think it likes the 64 bit OS.

Is there a generic print driver that might work? Any suggesgions would be great!

Cheers

Welcome to windows seven forum: Unfortunately it looks like your going to be in the market for a new printer. How old is your printer? I only ask since I see drivers going back to win 95. The XP driver is dated 12/10/01. Fabe

Wow, I can't believe there are no Windows 7 drivers for that printer. I have both an Epson Stylus Photo R800 and an Epson Stylus Photo 2200 and Epson has provided Windows 7 64-bit drivers for both. I've had my 2200 since 03, and my R800 since 04. In fact Epson just released a new Windows 7 64-bit driver set for my 2200 on 11 Dec 09.

Yeah I know not all their printers are going to have Windows 7 support, but the Pro or Photo series printers should, and I believe that 7000 falls in that catagory.

Incidentally I just looked here - Epson America, Inc. - Support: Microsoft Windows 7 Support to see of your printer was listed and its not

That's why it was probably given to you

The only thing I can say to that is try running it in comaptiblity mode, or If you have an XP machine, hook it up to it and have the XP machine share it.

Good luck

Yeah I know - it sucks! A friend suggested I could try running XP as a virtual PC within windows 7 and print from there - he wasn't sure if it would work but I'm going to give it a shot. I'll let you know if it works!

It works!... This could be a good solution for anyone wanting to print to an old printer. Windows Virtual PC is free from microsoft and it doesnt require partitioning your hard drive, or restarting when you want to print - you can also access all your documents directly from the virtual machine.

So there you go!
