Just refurbished a 1050C Plus. I have Windows 7

Customer Question

Just refurbished a 1050C Plus. I have Windows 7 Professional. Plotter is connected through my router. No drivers exist for Windows 7 64bit - so I loaded the XP. Computer thinks I am out of paper. Any general advice on getting this beast to talk to my computer and ideally print out dwg's from Autocad 2007?

you can try running vmware to get a virtual xp mode on the computer. It might work it might not. its better at running programs than device drivers. but its worth a shot

if you give me the exact make and model of the plotter i can see if there are any known work arounds for the issue.
