In versions of Windows prior to Vista, I can install the Adobe Postscript printer driver. It's called WINSTENG.EXE, and it can be downloaded from the Adobe website: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=1500
During the installation process, I have the opportunity to specify a PPD file, which in my case, has been customized.
When I try to install under Windows Vista however, I get a mysterious error window with no text. The title of the window is "Severe" (see attached screen shot). When I click "Ok", I get the message "Setup is not complete. If you quit the Setup program now, the program will not be installed". The version of the installer I'm using is 1.0.6, which was written long before Vista came along. The Adobe website claims that a Vista compatible driver is available, but I can't find it anywhere.
Does anyone know how to install a postscript printer with custom PPD under Windows Vista? I don't necessarily need to use the Adobe Postscript driver, but I do need some kind of postscript printer driver that uses my customized PPD file.
I'm running Windows Vista Business Edition on an Intel Core2 Duo machine with 2gb of RAM.
