I have a Epson PictureMaid and HP 7410 Printer that I want to install onto my new Win 7 Home Premium desktop. I have the old disc for both of them and they both are not compatible. I know there is a way to run compatibility in Win7 and install the programs. I forgot how to do it, can anyone give me the instructions?

thanks

It's not clear from your post: Are you trying to install device drivers for these printers or some other kind of software? AFAIK, XP device drivers are not compatible with Win 7; you have to search around for new drivers. Go to the websites of each printer mfg. and see what they have for these particular printers.

Both those seem to be offering win7 compatible drivers for your printers,
but it seems less common to offer up the install CD that seems like is often needed.
Perhaps the support folks for each of those would be able to explain how to get this working.

I think I got the Epson working.

For the HP, I have problem with the new software driver that I even have a different thread for that, It has not been resolved, that's the reason I post this to try to run in competitive mode instead.

I am really getting desperate, I paid a lot to buy a Window 7 computer because I have issue with Win 8 on the other computer. I have an older Win 7 Laptop, that is 64 bits and I had no problem installing at least the HP printer. I can even install HP printer onto the new Win 8 laptop for my wife.

thanks
