Windows 7: Need a Win7 Compatible Parallel Port Laser Printer

Need a Win7 Compatible Parallel Port Laser Printer

So I have an interesting situation here. A client of mine uses an old dos based database program that can't print to any printer that uses a USB connection, but it works fine with parallel. I've just upgraded them to Windows 7, and some of their printers (which I didn't know at the time, I wish I did), don't have compatible Win7 drivers. Does anybody here know of a new model printer that still can use a parallel port and works with windows 7? I know HP Laserjet 1300 works, because they have several of those, but I'm hoping I can find actual new machines (it's a longshot, I know).

What model printer are they using now, and can you get it to work with any of the inbox (and generic) HP Laserjet drivers?

one of the ones that is causing me problems is the hp laserjet...it's either 100 or 1000 I can't remember exactly off the top of my head. And yes, I've found work-arounds to make it work with Windows 7, but it only works with a usb adapter. Interestingly enough though, I may have just found a printer that will actually solve my problems. The HP Laserjet P2035 has the connection I need and is decently priced as well.
