At work we recently upgraded a PC to Windows 7 Enterprise. The printer (HP LaserJet 4 Plus) is very old and we cannot seem to get it to work on the new PC. The printer is so old that one end of the printer cable is that old, 36-pin parallel port (is it Centronics-36?) and the other end is USB (this end obviously is the end that get s plugged into the PC).
I cannot install the driver for that printer. I keep getting some error message saying it cannot install the kernel. And the generic
Windows driver is not working for it either. I'm not sure if its possible to get this ancient printer to work with such a newer OS. What's your consensus?
