    Epson 7600 on windows 7 problem

    Is there anyone who's using a epson 7600 on windows 7 64Bit?

    Can't find a driver for it. tried to use the vista 64 driver, but as soon as i start a print i get "communcation error" on the printer.
    It's not a hardware problem as the printer works perfect while using Quad tone rip

    No problems here-just used whatever newest driver was on the Epson site.
    Thanks,

    I use windows7-64 and couldn't get it to work either, Epson doesn't make win-7 drivers for it, and like the OP, I couldn't get it to go with the vista driver.

    Solution : I have an old XP machine sitting right beside the new computer just for printing to the Epson.

    I tried getting my 9600 to work on Vista and Windows7, no luck. I am doing what jp498 is doing, I'm using a dedicated XP machine as a print server.

    I did have the same problem for a while the Vista 64 bits driver will work just fine but you need to install epson Status Monitor and voila!

    You need to set up a Virtual drive using Oracle VM Virtual Box... has various downloads for the machine you have... then you download your XP on that. Then go from there.
