Can't get IBM Infoprint 1222 to work with Win7 over the network
Posted on 2010-08-17
I have a client that has a IBM Infoprint 1222 Laser Printer hooked up to a Win XP machine. The printer is shared and works great with other XP machines on the network. They recently bought a new laptop with Win7 64bit and I am trying to get this printer to install on the laptop however running into some problems. The computer can find the printer via the network, it will try to install but cannot find a driver to use. I have downloaded all three 64bit drivers that are on the IBM page for this model but they will not finish installing.
Anyone have any idea on how I can get this to work? Maybe directly plug the printer into the laptop and let Win7 detect it that way and install drivers automatically and then change the port that it uses to print?
