Does anyone know of a basic driver for the Epson 785 printer so I can print B&W and Color documents in Win 7 Pro. I am installing Win 7 Pro on an older box running XP Home 32 bit and would like to continue to use this fine old printer. I would also require the Epson Copy Utility, I believe, for Win 7 also. This older box will not be able to use Virtualization technology due to 2.4GHz processor. Thank You Very Much, Mark

That particular printer doesn't have Windows 7 support but it should still load at least a basic print driver from the HAL when you plug it in.

HAL = Hardware Abstraction Layer

It's what Windows uses to load basic drivers, etc. when the system is booted up and also allows basic drivers to be loaded for anything that is plugged in.

You can read more about it HERE .
