Printer Drivers

There are network printers for which there are NO available WIN7 compatible drivers. This is usually due to the age of the printer. The manufacturers for these printers have indicated that there is a possibility that the XP driver currently being used may work with WIN7 but they cannot guarantee that to be the case. If your library is using a printer that does not have WIN7 available print drivers you may want to consider replacing the printer prior to your deployment day. The network printers for which there are no available WIN& print drivers are:

  • Tektronix Phaser 780 (network printer)
  • HP Laserjet P2050 (network printer)
  • Xerox Docuprint N17 (network printer)
  • Xerox Docuprint N17PS (network printer)

In addition, there are also several local printer models for which there are currently NO available WIN7 compatible drivers. These are receipt printers and again, this is usually due to the age of the printer. The manufacturers for these printers have also indicated that there is a possibility that the XP driver currently being used may work with WIN7 but they cannot guarantee that to be the case. If your library is using a receipt printer that does not have WIN7 available print drivers you may want to consider replacing the printer prior to your deployment day. The local printers for which there are no available WIN7 print drivers are:

  • SII CL-1200e (local printer) (receipt printer)
  • Seiko DPU-414 (local printer (receipt printer)

If your library is using a printer model for which there is no available WIN7 print driver, the print driver currently in use will be available after deployment, however please note that if the printer no longer works after the WIN7 library computers have been installed or if there are problem after PC deployment the help desk will not be able to support the printer.

USB Adapters
The eiNetwork has done testing with several USB adapters, but does not guarantee compatibility with individual devices. The eiNetwork has only tested and placed the drivers on our Windows 7 image for the following adapters, which may be purchased through the eiNetwork Order Portal:

USB to Serial Adapter
https://einetwork.coupahost.com/items/detail/65

USB to Parallel Adapter
https://einetwork.coupahost.com/items/detail/70

The eiNetwork recommends that libraries only purchase the above adapters. Other adapters have not been tested for compatibility and will require additional drivers, which could result in a delay during your deployment.
