LASER JET 4 PLUS -- WINDOWS 7 64 BIT DRIVER

Considering purchase of new PC and have question regarding drivers for Windows 7 - 64 bit O/S.

Will I have issues if purchase of 64 bit O/S or shall I stay with 32 bit O/S.

Printer is Laser Jet 4 Plus.

 

Printer is old but very trusty running with Windows XP professional and want to keep it around even if it has an old trusty parallel cable connection.

Believe I saw or read a post that issues with 64 bit might not work once I purchase the new PC with Windows 64 Bit.

Any advice or help appreciated.

The driver for the LJ4 is built into windows7 so that is not a problem.

The real problem is the parallel connection to the printer...........most of the new PCs do not have a parallel port and using a parallel/USB adapter/cable has a 50-50 chance of working.
