Windows 7: Installing network printer in Windows 7 Premium

Installing network printer in Windows 7 Premium

Here is the fact. The printer we have, does not have any available driver for Windows 7 Premium.

The thing is I don't know is how XP or OS deal with network printer. I have an application that directly request to network printer without judging the installation of the printer. So, after installing a fresh copy of XP if I run my application it add an network printer and start doing the process. where as my application failed completely in 7 Premium.

I also tried to add network printer. While doing this, its gives an error. the snapshot of the error is given PrinterBehave | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

So, I am wandering how network printer work? is printer server gives driver too? why Premium talk about driver?

I wish I would get a solution soon

Even a networked printer needs a printer driver. Have you looked to see if there is a Vista driver available? If so that should work.

I checked on the NEC Multiimpact 700JX and there are no Vista or Windows 7 drivers for it so you will have to get a new printer.

Thanks for your reply. When I used my software it didn't even ask for driver. Now I can guess(yet not sure) that network printer server provide the required driver. And yes, I also saw that driver is not available for this product. I guess, I will have to buy a new one.
