The Adobe Universal PostScript Windows Driver Installer installs the latest version of the AdobePostScript (AdobePS) driver for each supported Microsoft Windows platform:
- AdobePS 4.5.3: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, or Windows Millennium Edition
- AdobePS 5.2.2: Windows NT 4.0
- PScript 5: Windows 2000 or Windows XP
These drivers enable you to print documents from applications running in these
Windows platforms to any printer that includes Adobe PostScript Level 2 or Adobe PostScript 3. You can also use this driver if you received a previous version of AdobePS bundled with an Adobe application, and are printing to any device that supports PostScript language level 2 or later.
This version of the AdobePS printer driver does not work with PostScript Level 1 devices, and does not work with Windows NT 3.5x.
Note: This version of the AdobePS printer driver is only for applications that run in the language and operating system specified. The Universal Installer 1.0.6 installs the version of AdobePS printer driver appropriate for the user's operating system.
This printer driver was jointly developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and

Installation of this driver requires a PostScript Printer Description (PPD) file for your printer. If you need a PPD file, do one or more of the following:
1. Most PostScript printers include a disk that contains the PPD file for the printer. If you cannot find this disk, contact your printer manufacturer for a replacement.
2. Visit your printer manufacturer's Web site or FTP site to obtain the PPD file.
3. Visit Adobe online services such as the Adobe Web site, which may have the PPD file you need. (Note: Adobe redistributes a number of PPD files as a courtesy to Adobe customers but does not guarantee to have the PPD file you need.)
4. If you work with a service bureau or print shop to create professionally printed documents, it may have the PPD file you need.
Your printer manufacturer is ultimately responsible for providing you with a PPD file. Neither Adobe nor your service provider is obligated to provide you with a PPD file.
To install AdobePS:
1. Have your PPD file ready, either on a floppy disk or on your hard drive, before you install AdobePS.
2. Quit all open applications.
3. Double-click the downloaded ".exe" file to begin the installation.
4. Follow the onscreen instructions until the installation is complete.
- Windows 98
If you are using the Microsoft Client for Netware Networks with Windows 98, you
must first disconnect any network drives before adding a new printer. If you do not, you may experience a failure in a system program called MPREXE.EXE or your system may stop responding during the installation. This problem does not occur when using Novell Client for Netware or when no drives are currently connected to Novell servers using the Microsoft Client.
To disconnect a drive, right-click on that drive in Windows Explorer and choose Disconnect from the pop-up menu.
- Windows NT 4.0
If you are using Novell NetWare Client for Windows NT 4.30, you may not be able to install a Network Printer using this software. To install a Network Printer you must first switch to either the Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Client Service for Netware or a different or newer version (4.5) of the Novell NetWare Client. If you do not, you may experience a failure when you click Next after selecting Network Printer as your printer type. Alternatively, you can install a printer as a Local Printer and use the Ports tab on the Properties dialog box for that printer to add the real network port.
You can tell which version of NetWare Client you are using when you first log on to Windows NT. If your screen displays "Novell Netware Client for Windows NT v4.30.410," this version does not work correctly.
You can also check your System32 folder for Netware.drv. Version 188.8.131.52
This printer driver is not for owners of non PostScript printers. To determine if your printer includes PostScript, check your printer's documentation or contact your printer's manufacturer. Please check the support area of the Adobe Web site for up-to-date information about application and printer compatibility issues.
