Despite initial appearances, Windows 7 supports this printer directly.
Click the launch (start) button, and go to devices and printers
Choose the port it's attached to
if the port isn't listed because the printer isn't hooked up, just choose LPT1 for now
Click on Konika Minolta and then click the WINDOWS UPDATE button ****IMPORTANT*** if you don't click Windows update, your printer will NOT be in the printers list.
there may now be 2 Konika Minolta listings on the left, choose the one that has more than 1 printer in it
The papgepro 1300W will now magically be in the list - choose it, and hit next
Follow the prompts and share the printer if you need to, or not if your computer is the only one using it, and on the screen after that, choose whether or not you want this printer to be the default printer
After the driver is installed, if you chose the right port already you can go ahead and print a test page.
If not, don't print a test page, and finish the installation, then plug in the printer - it should come up as new hardware, but now you have the driver for it and it should default to it during the installation.
You will now have 2 copies of the print driver if you didn't have the right port the first time, Either set the new driver as the default, or delete the first one you installed on LPT1: after the installation completes
If you just put the driver in for the right port, go ahead and print a test page.
