As there are vista drivers available for that device, you can use those with Windows 7. Whether it works with Windows 8 is less likely.

On a Windows 7 or Windows 8 machine, you can do a Windows Printer Update. Sometimes Microsoft provides drivers for older printers.

I have done that on my Windows 8 machine and there is no DELL 944 listed. And since DELL does not provide a driver (per the above post) then the likelihood is that it will not work.

Time for your client to upgrade their printer as well as their computer.
