Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Windows 7 Basic

This introductory course to Windows 7 environment will teach you about working with the Windows operating system. You will learn about basic functions including start menu; the desktop; managing files, folders, and libraries.

I believe the TM88iii Vista driver does not yet exist. You may be able to find something if you register as a developer at:


Alternatively, and depending on what you're trying to achieve, you may be able to use the "Generic/Text Only" driver.
what version is the latest driver you have? The one I saw was version 3.09 and it came out in march of 07. Let me know if you want to check into this and I will send it to you. It is 14.4Mb.

I have 304.e dated 3/4/07 Still no vista support in this!
There is no Vista support for this printer.  Epson has yet to release a driver, and for something like this it is highly unlikely you'll find any third part creating drivers.

However, there is a chance the XP drivers will work on Vista, if you can get them to install.  You might want to try turning off Driver Signature Enforcement just long enough to install the XP driver, and see what happens.  Worse case scenario, you have to uninstall the driver and you're back where you started.

Here's instructions on how to do that:

Another option is considering Dual boot until Vista gets around to supporting drivers.

You probably still have the license for XP hanging around somewhere.

I know this is probably for your business and a receipt printer is important to you. So, consider this option.

By the way, I searched for your drivers and came to the same conclusion as most of the posts. The drivers you are looking for don't yet exist.
The TM-T88III has been discontinued and replaced by the TM-T88IV. No Vista drivers are available.
