old printer driver

Hi,

I'am planning to buy a new pc with windows 7 pro 64 bits OS.
I have a Roland Colorcamm PC60 printer, but there are no drivers for this OS. Now I'am working with a windows xp pro 32 bits system.
Is it possible to run my printer in the xp mode from windows 7 pro 64 bits ?

It might be but your best bet is to see if you can find vista drivers. they should work i f installed in compatibility mode.

There aren't any Vista drivers too. The latest version was for Win XP.

I have the same problem with a canon multipass f80. I got the driver installed as the driver package tells me to, but I have run into some issues. Heres a screen shot of all the relevant info I can think of.



I installed the driver, but for some reason canon's multipass suite isn't detecting it.
