Looking for an Windows 7 Driver for an Infoprint 1222

I am looking for a Windows 7 driver for an IBM Infoprint 1222.  I tried DriverEasy and DriverUpdate and what I was provided did not work.  Any ideas?

It does not appear to be a common printer. I saw this Dell page amongst others (including the ones you say did not work).

http://dell10.com/drivers-for-windows10/ibm-printers-win10_687_10_Infoprint-1222.html

See if one of the selections might help you. The download button was near the bottom of the page.

I cannot vouch for any of this.

What drivers that are still available are on Ricoh's legacy site (Ricoh managed Infoprint on behalf of IBM)
https://www.infoprintsolutionscompany.com/internet/ipww.nsf/vwWebPublished/supwg_infoprint-1222_en#h3/
But there are no more recent drivers from the supplier that the 2010 XP selection.

It's worth trying their generic universal PCL (or PS) drivers for Windows 7 though.

You won't get all the features supported but this may be the difference between having a partly functional printer and a useless box of electrics.

I have found some sites that claim to have Win7 drivers. For example:

http://www.driverscape.com/download/ibm-infoprint-1222
http://www.driverfiles.net/Printers/IBM/Infoprint-1222/download/page,sh,26526,70,12,.html

I'm not happy with the descriptions given though. Give them a try and see what they do. Other sites have drivers for older versions of Windows.

If that does not work, the Infoprint 1222 supports PCL6 and PostScript 3. Hence you should be able to use drivers for many other printers (HP, Dell, etc). However, you need to pick one that matches your printer's capabilities (number of trays, duplexing, etc) as closely as possible. One I would suggest is the Xerox Global Print Driver. It is supposed to query the printer about its capabilities. The PostScript version is probably the best for that. Get it here:

If you have Win7 64 bit, use this link:

So we all gave you information that you used - why are you accepting your own post which was not a solution?
NWC1109Author Commented:
It was an error.  Resulting of being unfamiliar with the application.

Do you mean unfamiliar with EE?  In that case it can be corrected, if you tell us how to award the points.
