Does anyone know where I could find a driver for Win7/2008 for IBM Proprinter III XL?  I have two IBM 4247-001 printers that both emulate Proprinter III and am installing new PC's with Win7.   I have searched the internet but no luck.

    Did you try the IBM Universal Print driver (UPD)?
    We're running for all our printers the UPD, this is working just fine for both our XP and win7 machines.
    Also new and old IBM printers.
    Just give it a try.

    mahatma82, thanks for the suggestion.  I will give the IBM Universal Driver a try.  Question, are there various versions of the IBM UPD?

    Accepted Solution

    I think they split the UPD by family.
    So there is a UPD for the 1000-series, one for the 2000-series and so on.
