I know it is a bit late but my company had the same problem just a few weeks ago and I figured out a work around that might help.

First of all, we have a computer dedicated to our Savin 2400 that still runs XP. I found this


which allows you to set up a dropbox and has a .vbs script that is set to auto print.

From there it was easy, just go out and download a pdf image writer like this one


or any other document writer and set the default folder it saves to in the dropbox print queue. This will let you hit print, select your document writer (which you can rename to "ricoh") and print away!

Your Gestetner A045 is made by Ricoh. I will be a lot easier finding a Ricoh dealer than a Gestetner one. Here are the equivalent models for your machine. That is, any dealer listing that they service Ricoh, Savin, Lanier or Gestetner should be able to service it.
Your machine is the same as:
Ricoh Aficio 240W
Savin 2400WD
Lanier LW310
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Go to this web site http://www.ricoh-support.com/ and see if there is what you want.
The equivalent model is Aficio 240W.
Go to the quick search and in the left tab scroll to the wide format an in the right tab select the model (240W).
See you!

When you select the user or the path for the folder you can view it on the screen. Simply type in your PC the path to see where you are sending.
On your PC click the start button, then RUN. Write the Path you see in the machine. At last ENTER
Hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you are changing a paper roll, make sure you can advance the paper through the "throat" using the green knob and then manually trim it. If you are loading paper in the cassette tray, make sure you adjust the green sizing guides to match the paper dimension (8.5x11", 11x17), etc.
