Windows DriversV. 3.0.3.0
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10Transact Core Driver Package

Description:
The Transact Core Driver Package provides a convenient way for users to integrate their Transact 203 DPI thermal printer (280, 430, 480, 610, 630, 880, 3000, 8040, 9000, and Ultra) with the Windows Operating System.

The installation wizard allows the user to select 1 of 4 different default paper widths: 304 dots, 576 dots, 608 dots, or 640 dots.  NOT all printers support all widths, so the user must make sure that they choose a default paper width that is compatible with the Transact printer they are installing.  For example: the 3000 printer only supports 640 dots wide paper, so the user should select 640 dots as the default width.

This installation package will also install the Transact Printer Properties application that allows the user to edit certain print job characteristics such as add Start of Print Job and End of Print Job commands, End of Print Job line feeds, an end of Print Job knife cut, et cetera.  This application is nearly identical to and in addition to the Transact Printer Properties tab provided under the Printer Properties dialog in Devices and Printers; however, there are known Privilege/Access issues with some Windows setups that prevent users from making changes via the dialog.  Hence the inclusion of the separate application.
 
Latest Version:

Generic/Text Only Driver (Included in Windows)
Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 32-bit or 64-bit systems

If you are installing a Series 50, Series 70, Series 80/80PLUS, Series 90/90 PLUS, or a Series 150 printer, unfortunately we don’t have any Windows drivers for these printers and don't plan on developing any since they are our older printers. Instead you want to install a Generic/Text Only driver, which is included in Windows, and will allow you to print.  When you go through the Add Printer Wizard, just select Generic for the Manufacturer, and Generic/Text Only for the Printer, and you should be ok and should be able to print to your printer. Please follow the Windows Driver Installation Guide.pdf instructions on how to do this.
