Apollo 1200 printer Drivers w/Xp Pro OS,

I have an Apollo 1200 Printer that worked fine with Microsoft 98 back in the day. The printer is still a very good printer and i would like to use it with my new Operating system, Xp. I can't seem to get anything that would work with Xp for  this printer. I have Xp Pro.

Re: Apollo 1200 printer Drivers w/Xp Pro OS,

Use Driver from Microsoft driver database


Start ---> settings ---> printers and faxes-----> Add a printer--->Next ---> Select a Local printer   ----> select port LPT1 -----> Select Manufacture ---"Apollo"


Select model Apollo pro xxx

Select Default --------> Select Test page ---> print and test driver



(Need Xp Pro cd to Copy Files to windows directory) Insert CD when ask
