My parents had a program – Arts and Letters – that would not work on windows 7.  Luckily, Windows 7 professional and ultimate (not home editions) come with a free windows xp virtual mode.  It requires a download of three items.  I’ll explain more later, but here’s the website:

Windows XP Mode and Virtual PC

PS – Your installed printers are available, you just have to select the “tsport” port for them to work.  I had to do trial and error by printing a test page on each port until it came out.

PPS – You’ll need to click on the start menu option under Virtual PC for “Windows XP Mode” after installing the items from the previous link.  Do not create your own virtual machine.  The installation will be done for you by clicking “Windows XP Mode”
