    Howto install a PPD Driver?

    Hi all!

    I recently updated my workstation to Windows 7. I really like it! , but I have one problem:
    I want to install a driver for our OcÚ VarioPrint 2090 networkprinter, so I downloaded the appropriate driver from the OcÚ-website.
    The driver consists of 3 files:

    • OCVP2090.PPD
    • VP2090_2K.INF
    • VP2090_9X_NT.INF

    How do I install this driver on Windows 7? Windows does not recognise the driver, so I searched the internet. I found out that I need to install the Adobe Postscript Driver, but I can't find a version for Win7....

    Surely there must be a way to install this driver.... only I can't find it...

    I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks!

    Have you tried using the Vista version of the driver? Drivers made for Vista usually work on Windows 7.

    on some occasions I have also found that using xp drivers work so may be worth trying xp ones but am guessing the vista / xp may be the same or similiar ?
