I have finally gotten my new computer sort of set up. Now I find all the issues that kept me from upgrading my win 7 machine to win 10.

After some help here I got my qimage ultimate transferred over to the new machine and I find I no longer have a driver for my epson 7600.

After lots of trial and error still not able to load a driver to the new computer. I have read that there is no driver for win 10 but I have also read
that some folks have found work arounds and are able to load the driver. I have not been able to find anything specific to try.

So any help or links to info would be greatly appreciated.

I have a 9900 that has given me more trouble than it's worth and the 7600 never let me down. That is one reason I want to keep it going. Another is I print film  negatives
for sandcarving and this printer has produce the best results out all the printers I have tried. Last but not least, covid has hit hard and there is no budget this year for a new printer that would not get used enough to keep from getting head clogs.

So again, any help would be  greatly appreciated.

The advise I have seen is to download the XP driver and install it in compatibility mode.  I don't know anyone personally who has ever gotten that running correctly.  And later versions of Windows 10 may not even allow you to install a driver that is not digitally signed.  I found this thread on the topic:

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware-winpc/windows-10-does-not-recognize-epson-sylus-pro-7600/a49fc41a-b521-4400-9099-bd2634cf7afb?page=1

Thanks for the input.

Yes, I have turned off the signing requirements and tried the vista and xp drivers with no luck.

I know with my vinyl cutter some rips offer compatibility. I wonder if a RIP would work or maybe my printer should just RIP??

Right now I have to save down a version in my design program as the latest version will not work with win 7 so I save down, transfer to the old computer and print. Not ideal by any means.

if the 9900 didn't have so many issues I would just get rid of the 7600.

Thanks again for the tips.
