Will a Photo A10 Printer 922 work with Windows 7

I have an old Photo A10 Printer 922 connected to my home network.  I like the features of this old printer and it works well with computers on the network that are running Windows XP.  However, I recently purchased a laptop that has Windows 7 Home premium installed.  I cannot get the printer to work with Windows 7.   I always get a message to install drivers.  I also cannot locate any Windows 7 drivers for the printer on the Dell web site.

Will the Vista drivers work with Windows 7 ?

qcable,

 

Mambers have this printer working with Windows 7.

 

The easier instructions are...

First run Delete Print Jobs to remove any stuck print job in the queue.

Disconnect the printer.

Download and run the patch(printer cleanup utility) until it prompts you to restart your computer.

Restart your computer. Make sure the printer is removed.
Manual Printer Driver Removal

Download the Vista 32-bit drivers for Windows 7 32-bit or the Vista 64-bit drivers for Windows 7 64-bit. Install the Vista drivers in the Vista Compatibility mode You'll get a message, the printer is not connected. Connect the printer at this time(powered on).

Links to the patch/drivers can be found at...
