Apple LaserWriter v.23 printer & XP driver work in 32 bit Windows 7?

I can't find 'Apple LaserWriter V.23" printer driver in 32 bit Windows 7
although I can use this before upgrade the notebook from Windows XP with default printer driver.

Can give any help if I need this printer driver with file port in Windows 7, 32 bit?

Also, if I have other device which have XP driver (32 bit) only.
Can we use it in Windows 7 (32 bit) too? (eg. HP Scanjet 5370c)

Under Windows XP, the printer drive of 'Apple LaserWriter v.23' is in the
list of Windows printer itself.

Lastly, I would like to know how can I use back the old printer driver which in
Windows XP (and provide from Microsoft) please?
(Simply add the driver by XP's NTprinter.INF seem not work in Windows 7, 32 bit)

Thanks for all of your help.

Use the Have disk button in Add Printer to install the XP drivers for the LaserWriter

Have Disk

Point to the XP CD
\i386

You will see the driver listed.

You will need the driver.cab file from XP as well.  It's on the CD.

No clue on the scanner, you will need to ask HP.

Answer

The error is due to the fact that Add Printer is not in admin context which will be required for these drivers.

Launch Add Driver instead

printui /s /t2

Add


Next

x86
Next

Have Disk
d:\i386

Ok

Select Apple

Select  Apple LaserWriter v23.0

Next

Finish


Now you can add the local printer using Add Network Printer since this will list the drivers installed

printui /ip

Select the Port

Use an existing print driver on the computer

Next

Work through the rest of the wizard

Finish
