My NEC 860 Laser printer doesn't work in Win7

Specs: Windows 7 64 bit, HP 3gb
NEC is out of business but their printer is excellent. It can't be installed in Win7. Are there other drivers that might work that Win7 will recognize?

Have you plugged it in to see if W7 may find a generic driver, it will likely be a PCL Printer...

In W2K and XP the driver was included on the Install CD....

"Use SuperScript 860 Printer Driver provided with Windows and is on the Windows Install CD."

Not Plug and Play but I believe the 860 supports Postscript 78 Type 1 fonts and PCL 4.5 14 fonts. I don't know if it has native postscript support,
