    Does anyone know the name of a program that helps older printers work with Windows 7? I had previously downloaded it a few months ago but I can't find it now. Unfortunately I can't remember the program name or where I found it.

    Plug the printer on USB and let Windows 7 update the driver, or install a generic printer for the model u have.

    This printer is REALLY OLD. It is an old dot-matrix.

    consult the Printers manual and set the Printer to Epson mode using the Dip-Switches of the printer. than let windows install the generic driver for and compatible Epson Dot Matrix printer like LQ100 (if 24pin) or some others. That just should work!
