Unable to install Epson TM-U950P

Hi,
I'm having problems getting an Epson TM-U950P POS to work on my windows 7 SP1 PC,
I have tried the Epson Advanced Printer Driver 4.55 and it installs, but then I cant print anything, I think the problem is that I'm using an adapter for the parallel port to convert it to USB, and there doesn't seem to be any drivers that are actually for USB, just Parallel port.

I am told this is not a problem is I use XP, but I'm wondering if it is at all possible to get this to work on windows 7 64bit, using a Parallel port to USB converter.
Thanks in advanced

I have had trouble with those adapters.  Try this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815166005

(PCI)

or if that doesnt work,  try EXTRACTING the drivers out of the install file and updating them through device manager.  Use a program like 7zip to extract the files

Hi Thank for the advice, I will try to extract the drivers with 7zip and see how that goes, I forgot to mention that my motherboard only has 1 PCIexpress slot, so I cant use a PCI parallel port.
Thanks again.

You will still need to setup the printer as a usb printer, since you have connected the printer with a parallel to usb converter. You have to select create a new port if the usb port is not shown in the dropdown. From there you should be able to install the printer drivers.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
