Universal Printer Driver

Posted: 03-24-2009, 12:22 PM

Hi

I would like to install a Universal Printer Driver

Can someone point me to a good free driver that will run under Window
Vista Home Premium (32bit)

What is the difference between Microsoft's Universal Printer Driver (
cannot determine if this driver is suitable for a home pc, or if i
meant for Vista) and the Generic/Text only driver listed under printe
drivers in Vista

If I wanted to install the Generic driver as well, would I use th
Vista OS disk

Thanks for any help

the universal printer driver is the core component for most PCL drivers,
unidrv.dll. The Generic/Text Only driver also uses the core unidrv
components as well.

There is no driver named Microsoft Universal Print driver.
