Q: How to In stall Epson TM-T88 Driver on WIN 7

Thank you very much for your prompt answer RE How to install Epson TM-T88 Driver on WIN 7.

(the driver name: Tmdrve). There are 6 folders at the Printer Driver Folers (Manual, Sample, WIN95, Win98,win2000,WinNT40)


When Select: WIN95, or win98, the driver is (ESCPOS.INF), I get the follwing massage:- can’t install the Epson TM-T88IIR Partial Cut Print Drive. To Obtain a driver that is compatible with the version of windows you are running contact the manufacturer.


When Select: win2000, or winNT40, the driver is OEMSETUP.INF, I get the following massage: Printer Driver was not installed.  Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000002).


I was able to set up the printer at another pc, but when I try to print a text page it says:-  Test page faild to print. Operation could not be completed (error 0x0000007a).


I must use this driver (TMDRVE) and slect the same Printer (TM-T88IIR Partial Cut) even if I have a new Printer, such as Epson TM-T88V.  in order for the softwar to print nice invoice, and then cut the invoice.  Other wise it would be a mess. 

Every thing was going perfect with WIN XP, but we need to buy new computers for our new customers with WIN 7 pre installed.

Thank you once more and really highly apreciate for your efforts.
