Hi,
My new boss has a 64 bit Windows 7 laptop. We are trying to hook up to a Xerox WorkCentre 128 wirelessly. It connects, but prints only gobbly-goop. When I talked to Xerox they said there are no drivers for the 64 bit Win 7, and suggested changing his computer to Vista, or getting a new printer. (brother)!
I'm wondering if any of you tech's would know a way around this?
Thanks for any help!

Try to install the Vista 64-bit driver. For the Vista is there a big installation package? A self-extracting self-installing driver only file? Just the driver file?

Yes, it is a self-extracting/installing file.
Installing the file for Vista was suggested to me today, I will try that tomorrow.
Thanks!

If that doesn't work delete anything that may have been installed or partially installed. Then right click on that file and choose 'Troubleshoot compatibility.' Tell it that it worked in Vista SP2 (or SP1 for yet another try).
