Solved Epson 7600 Printer Driver for Win 8

Can anyone provide instructions to get the vista 64-bit driver for an Epson 7600 working in Windows 8? Epson will not provide a new driver. The vista driver worked in windows 7. I followed the instructions on the Epson driver website, but the driver installation did not work. The printer shows up as an unrecognized device in the Win 8 hardware list.

Yes, I read the Epson statement and instructions on the 7600 driver. However, those instructions did not work. Then I called Epson tech support and talked to a real person. He said that the message on their site was just boilerplate and was not true. There was no Win7 driver for the 7600, and there will not be a Win8 driver either. He also said that no one at Epson tried the work-around instructions because they themselves do not have a 7600 printing to try them on. Unbelievable, but that's what he said! He could only suggest that I contact Microsoft for driver support.

I am hoping that someone has a better answer, and a way to get the vista 64-bit driver working with Win8.

Thanks.

[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif]I am trying to use my Epson 7600 on Win 7. I downloaded the Vista driver, but I get red lights, so it doesn't work. Can anyone advise me on how to use that driver or other alternatives, such as a generic Epson driver? Thanks.
