Installing printer software withour printer

I produce documents for use in another office where they have an OKI6200dn printer but I can't load the software/drivers for that printer onto my Win 7 64x as I can't get passed the 'search' for the printer (which clearly is not here). I have down loaded the latest drivers for this OS.

Hi potshot. Welcome to SevenForums.

Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers.

Click on "add printer"

Then click on "add a network,wireless or bluetooth printer"

Click on "The printer I want isn't listed"

You will then be given the option to find a printer by name or TCP/IP address.

By browsing you should be able to add the printer in your other office

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that but unfortunately there is no physical or network connection to the printer.

Choose the "add a local printer" option. Just leave the "choose a printer port" as you are not going to connect the printer. Select your printer model, click "Have Disk" if your's isn't listed then follow the on screen prompts.
Once its installed you can then change the printer port to whatever you need be it USB, TCP/IP etc.
