Martin,

I downloaded a driver from Xante.com about three monthas ago for my dinosaur Screen-Writer 3.
Works great but Windows XP still looks to add the new hardware every time I start up. Not a big issue, I just cancel the pop-up and continue on.

Martin,

If I remember correctly, I saved the downloaded driver to a file and when I manually installed by going thru Control Panel-printers and then telling it where I had the driver located. XP then found the driver and voila! I was able to print. Every time I restart windows it finds new hardware but I just tell it to ignore and everything remains usable. Hope this helps, I'm sure someone more computer savvy than me would roll over laughing but this seems to work (which after all is the object of this puzzle, right?) Best of luck, if you finally get it running you'll like it. Nice dark transparencies.

Doug
