    I've connected my Epson EPL-5900L to my desktop-pc (Windows XP 32bit) and
    share it in the network.
    Now I want to use this shared printer on a Windows 7 (64bit) notebook but
    unfortunately there are no 64bit drivers for this printer (not for windows 7
    and not for vista).

    Is there a way I can use this printer on the notebook?
    --> Maybe a "proxy-printer" on the XP-machine where exists 64bit driver für
    windows 7.

    Hopefully someone can help me.

  2. To print from 64-bit Win 7 you will need 64-bit Win 7 drivers. If the
    printer has a emu,lation of something like an HP laser, then you could
    select an HP driver listed in Win 7 and use that.

    If what ever program you want to from has an option to print to PDF you
    can put the files in PDF format and then take it to a computer where you
    can open and print a PDF file.
