Ok, so I'm currently using an OLD Compaq as my dedicated laser computer, and was recently thinking of upgrading to more memory, more RAM, a better processor, etc - but obviously I have to use XP (or so I'm thinking).

So I was wondering who out there, who owns a Pinnacle, uses a more modern computer than a P2, and an OS other than XP - and either run XP virtually or somehow runs something other than XP.

What good or bad stories do you have to share?

I have a Pinnacle ZX and I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, 32 bit on an Intel Core i7 based system. It works fine. You can't run the driver on a 64 bit system but it works fine on 32 - no need to run XP mode.

Yep, My driver runs fine on Win 7 32 bit. Intel Quad 4. Luckily the PC has a parallel port!

Are there any known issues running a USB-to-Parallel Port connection ??

My slim tower does not have one ---
