Has anyone successfully gotten an Epson LQ850 dot matrix to work in Windows 7? I have a parallel port, I just can't seem to find a suitable driver. Least ways it won't print

Thanks in advance

If you cant find one it may be tricky :S Had issues at work with printers migrating, most are old though.

I had to give up an old Packard Bell Scanner from 1999 ... no driver for it for XP on wawards and 98 one wont work anymore, sigh guess time for an update lol.

The Epson site says that the driver necessary is on the Win7 DVD. Sure enough, I can find the one Epson says to install under the list for Epson printers in the "Add a Printer" window. I pick it, Win7 even sets it as the default, but when I try to run a test page nothing happens.
