|Hi Rainbow, bear in mind free standing word processors pre-dated pc's as we know them. (some would argue they evolved into pc's). |
Thus it is unlikely (although not impossible) you will find a specific (dos) driver for the Corona.
However it should be possible to use the Corona as a standard ascii printer.
It will not have graphics capability.
The fonts and character sets will only be those you have the daisy wheels for.
I think you already have the 'Messenger Module' as it sounds to be the add-on hardware pcb and/or socket.
Was surprised it has a 9 pin socket, as generally Centronics printer interfaces were used then.
Possibily there is a manual for the module itself, as it is an add-on, especially if there are dip switches involved.
The printer should be connected to a pc serial com socket (as it is thought to be RS232).
Note: connecting to the PC printer socket will cause much damage!!
The RS232 connections are not 1 to 1, as handshaking is involved, and a cable may need making, which is not difficult.
Possibly I can advise pin connections, if you advise whether the pc end is 9 or 25 pin.
There is a manual here:- https://www.smithcorona.com/pdf/WS2...
But the module does not appear to be included.
For multi-part forms a 9 pin dot matrix printer is the ideal solution and should print what you require.
I use and recommend the OKI Microline 192 Elite.
Mine is still going strong after over 20 years with the original print head.
Do not buy one of these types of printer without querying with me first for additional information.
Good Luck - Keep us posted.
