    According to the Brother web site there is no Windows 7 driver for the 9200PC.

    Joe,
    First, thanks for you kind help.
    Of course, I knew Brother's official proclamation. But how could it help existing orphaned users?
    I wonder if anyone has installed the obsolete driver thru Windows compatibility mode. Is it plausible?

    It's always possible that an older driver will work. If they make a driver for Vista, this may be the most compatible. I had a similar issue with a older HP printer. I lost some functionality for the printer, but it did work with XP drivers. The worst that can happen is that your printer will not work and you have to remove it or uninstall the drivers. It's worth trying if you really wish to use this printer. Your printer does list drivers for XP but not Vista

    Ted,
    Thanks for your help.
    If a program or a driver is set to be Windows XP compatibility mode in Windows 7 Ultimate x64, will it in any degrade the overall performance?

    You must use a 64-bit driver with a 64-bit version of Windows. I don't believe the drivers for XP are 64-bit. Those drivers were released before 64-bit XP was even available. You can try if you wish but I doubt they will install.

    Hi there.
    I have some strange, but functioning solution. It works in Windows 8.1. - (maybe in Win 7 too)

    Connect your PT printer to standard PC COM1 port. In my case it must be in added PCI card (motherboard has NO COM port).
    Install free VirtualBox from Oracle (it is very useful for many other things).
    Then instal virtualized WindowsXP (it can be even your old winXP, imported from your old HDD, or pure installation.).
    Then instal standard PT printer driver (PD92NT0E.EXE) - about 0,5 MB to the virtualized WinXP - (driver can be downloaded from official Brother webpage).
    Printer named "Brother PT-9200PC" appears in virtualized windowsXP as a regular printer.
    Then instal P-Touch editor (pew42212aus.exe) - download size about 38 MB.

    In VirtualBox setting you have to:
    Enable Serial port:
    Number of port: COM1
    IRQ: 4 (default)
    I/O port: 0x3f8 (default)
    Port mode: Host device
    Create pipe: ON (default)
    Port/File path: COM1

    With theese settings it works pretty fine and it save my money.
