I'm trying to move the Win7 64 here at work. Only thing I can't get going is my work printer. It's an OTC850... big huge workhorse :) and it's on an after market parallel port pci card, since my pc only had usb. It is on LPT3. Anyway, I can't get win7 to even see the thing. Tried looking for drivers but the version I found is not compatible with 64 bit os's. Any ideas how I can get it working? Printer emulator maybe??

Would a USB to Parallel adapter help?

Fixed.... Found 64 bit Vista drivers for the PCI parallel port board and they worked :)

This should also help quite a bit. In fact, it would have eliminated the need for the add in PCI card.

That said, we sell one at my store, and it goes for roughly $52. :bugeyes: It's possible you saved a few bucks by getting that PCI card. ;)

Well due to the value of the Euro and the Aemero, your $.02 is now -$5. :headexplode:
