NT4. driver on Win7

March 30, 2010 at 19:02:04
Specs: Windows 7
We are a small print shop. The old machine that makes 'plates' runs like a printer, but the last drivers made only go up to XP (NT4). Vista won't run them. Will Windows 7?

I don't know for sure, but Windows 7 Professional has additional support XP programs (there is a download to work with pro), but I do not know if that applies to drivers.
You can also Google the machine name and 'drivers' and 'windows 7' and also Google the machine name and 'forums' in case there are others that have found a solution.

Did you try it in compatibility mode?

If you can’t find the right Windows drivers manually, try this site:
http://www.best-driver-updater.com/...
There is a program I use which will find drivers for just about all hardware devices. The best part is it takes a snapshot of your system specifications and matches the right driver to go with it.
You can also search by the following link:

And you can also keep asking on:

If you cannot run it under vista, then there is a 99.9% chance that it will not run under windows 7

The windows XP virual compatibility thing, is only a VM of windows XP and there is little chance that it will support communicating with the printer

The only thing I can suggest is that you look to see if microsoft have included a driver with windows 7 that suites your needs
Here is a link to the microsoft compatibility database

Hope this helps, or at least helps give a clearer understanding

If the above suggestions aren't working, Windows XP Mode is very likely
your best option.
