Apple LaserWriter printer
I used an AppleLaserWriter Pro 630 laser printer on a previous Windows XP
clone computer without any problem. The XP OS included printer drivers for
many of the popular LaserWriter printers (long since out of production). The
new Windows Vista Home Basic does not appear to provide any drivers for the
LaserWriters, and the Apple and Adobe versions of drivers will not install
under Vista. Do any of the upgrades to Windows Vista contain the Apple laser
printer drivers? Does Microsoft have any intention of providing these
sometime in the future? They would be extremely helpful because I don't want
to give up the printer. Thanks for any feedback.

Re: Apple LaserWriter printer
You can install the XP Apple drivers onto Vista if you have the XP
installation CD.

Use the have disk option in the Add Printer Wizard.

point to the CD \i386 directory

Re: Apple LaserWriter printer

I went straight to Vista from Windows ME and so don't have an XP
installation disk. Is there any other way I can get the Apple
Laserwriter Select drivers onto Vista?

Re: Apple LaserWriter printer

I called apple support and they said to check their Downloads
page. I couldn't find anything there newer than Windows 98 drivers - I
thought it useless to try them.
