Under Microsoft Windows version 3.0, you can install the generic PostScriptPrinter driver to use your printer's PostScript capabilities. Under Windowsversion 3.1, you should install the specific model name of your printer.

The generic PostScript Printer driver still exists for those applicationsthat require this generic driver name to run properly with PostScriptfunctionality. However, you should only use the generic driver as a lastresort. It doesn't perform all operations as well as using the specificmodel for your printer.
With version 3.5 of the generic PostScript driver (shipped with Windows3.1), any settings required for the print job need to be specified fromControl Panel, not from within the application you are printing from.
