Adobe collaborated with Microsoft to create a (good) Windows Postscript driver, which includes the PSCRIPT5.DLL as a part of a Microsoft Windows installation. The driver (PSCRIPT5.DLL) is 'table-driven' via any vendor-supplied (or custom, for that matter) PPD file. Firstly download or create the printer-specific PPD file. Then to add this Postscript driver, do the following:
- Add a New Printer manually (this allows you to specify the port and driver)
- Choose the correct port (USB, Network IP Address, whatever)
- For the driver, choose Generic (Vendor), MS Publisher Color Printer (or Imagesetter - for other features) (printer)
- Give it a name and finish.
After you have added the printer you then need to do some file system jiggery pokery:
- In C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\x64\3\ delete the following 2 files: MSGENCOL.PPD and MSGENCOL.PPD
- In the same folder add your MYPRINTER.PPD and rename it to MSGENCOL.PPD
- Go back into the Printer properties and check the Device Settings tab - in particular the printer-specific stuff, also Postscript version, DPI, trays and tray settings.
