If you have problems printing any file from the computer, contact Apple Support, Microsoft Technical Support, or the printer manufacturer. Make sure that the printer is on and check the physical connections between the printer and the computer. The solution could be as simple as reconnecting a loose cable.
Many printer manufacturers frequently update their software drivers. If you haven't updated the printer driver recently, contact the printer manufacturer for an updated driver, or download one from the manufacturer's website.
Ensure that the printer has enough memory to print all page elements. To print at 300 dpi, make sure that the printer has at least 2 MB of available RAM. To print at 600 dpi, make sure that the printer has at least 4 - 6 MB of RAM. For instructions on determining available printer memory, see the printer documentation.
If the file prints correctly, network-related issues or problems with your printer or its device drivers could be the cause. Contact your network administrator, consult the documentation for your printer, or contact the printer manufacturer for assistance.
Disclaimer: Some of these solutions require you to change the printer driver properties. The locations for specific properties vary by printer and by printer driver. Therefore, Adobe Technical Support cannot provide detailed information about the location for each property. Contact the printer manufacturer or refer to the printer documentation for more information.
A PostScript Printer Description (PPD) file describes the capabilities of a PostScript printer for settings such as margins, color, and resolution. Incorrect or outdated PPD files can increase print times or cause other problems. Configure your printer in the Printers Control Panel with the PPD file that the printer manufacturer recommends.
If you set up the printer driver to output PostScript code that's optimized for portability and in binary format, the amount of scaling the driver must do is minimized, thus preventing it from losing portions of images.
If you use a network printer, install a printer driver that's compatible with your operating system. Print servers don't always provide drivers for operating systems running on client computers. So, you could be using a printer driver that's appropriate for the print server's operating system but not for your computer's operating system.
VGA mode is a startup option that forces the system into standard 640 x 480 16-color VGA mode by using a video driver that is compatible with any video adapter. Enable VGA mode for your video card to resolve problems related to your video card and it drivers.
If you can print correctly from Photoshop using the Windows VGA driver, then the driver for your video card could be damaged, outdated, or incompatible with your printer driver or Photoshop. To obtain an updated video card driver, contact the manufacturer of your video card.
Adobe PostScript was at the forefront of the Desktop Publishing Revolution. It was released in 1984 and was not only the first device-independent Page Description Language (PDL) but also a programming language. It was originally designed to print documents on laser printers but was soon adapted to produce high-resolution files for imagesetters used by commercial printers.
Much of the power of the PostScript language derives from its ability to not only allow the description of images but also vector graphics, text, color and shades UNLIKE the raster formats of the day (and today). It can deal with the general class of raster output devices (printers and displays) as it can be used as an interactive system for controlling them. The defining property of a raster output device is that a printed or displayed image consists of a rectangular array of dots, called pixels, that can be addressed individually. The ability to individually set colors of pixels means that printed or displayed output can include text, fonts, arbitrary graphical shapes, and reproductions of sampled images.
The PostScript RIP was a common component for laser printers until the 1990s. Today, Adobe PDF has replaced PostScript as the preferred print file format and is also the dominant format for document sharing and collaboration across devices and platforms. Adobe Embedded Print Engine is the next-generation RIP for driving desktop and multi-functional printers (MFPs). It can natively process PDF files for fast reliable printing in the office and home environments. It is optimized for printing via mobile and cloud and accurate output to low print-speed, low-resource devices without compromising performance and print quality.
The Adobe Captivate demonstration below illustrates how to install a printer that uses a PostScript printer driver. For more information about viewing this demo, see Viewing Adobe Captivate Demos in Knowledgebase Documents (kb403894).
To expand on the previous response, what you tried to install was an Adobe PostScript Printer Driver Installer dating back to 2002 in terms of its last update. It was designed to install the AdobePS PostScript Printer Driver on Windows'95, Windows'98, and Windows'ME as well as a special version of the AdobePS PostScript Printer Driver on Windows NT 4.0. It also supported associating a PPD file with the standard Windows PostScript driver, a joint project of Adobe and Microsoft, that shipped with

It also supported associating a PPD file with the standard Windows PostScript driver, a joint project of Adobe and Microsoft, that shipped with Windows 2000 and later versions, to create a driver instance associated with the printer type described in the PPD file selected.
Support for the driver installer ended with Windows XP 32 bit. It either doesn't work at all or improperly runs on any newer version of Windows including all 64-bit versions of Windows and all varieties of Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. For that reason, Adobe stopped distribution of this driver installer many years ago. There are no plans to update it.
To install PostScript printer drivers now, you use the Add a printer or scanner function of the Printers & Scanners settings dialog. It will assist you in creating a proper PostScript printer driver instance with the correct PPD file and parameters using the built in PSCRIPT5.DLL driver that ships with Windows 10.
Alternatively, most printers come with a driver installer or one may be downloaded from the printer vendor's website. Given that older printers packaged with the device may not be compatible with Windows 10, checking the vendor's website is the safest bet. May sure you choose the proper printer model, the PDL you want (i.e. PostScript as opposed to PCL or whatever), and operating system version (i.e., Windows 10, 32 or 64-bit).
I am also trying to install the PostScript driver in my system but I am getting an error every time. This is my Epson WF-3640 Blurry Printing model. If anyone can help me out, please reply to this forum.

I was able to check another computer of mine and was reminded that I'd used a Lexmark C510 PS (MS) driver when the Adobe Generic PS driver installation program had stopped working and that did the job.
Absolutely Wrong! The Microsoft PS Class Driver is a generic, highly-discredited (even by internal Microsoft developers) Windows Type 4 Microsoft printer driver that converts XPS to PostScript and can yield more errors than an early Mets game!
Since most Windows applications (including Microsoft Office applications) actually generate GDI, using this Microsoft PS Class Driver causes application GDI commands to be translated to XPS which is then translated to a generic PostScript and much can and is lost in this two-stage convertion to PostScript. That driver does not support any application which generates its own PostScript including Adobe applications such as Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Acrobat, and FrameMaker as well as third party applications such as AutoCAD, CorelDRAW, and QuarkXPress. Forget about use of any CMYK colorants, separations, Pantone colors, printer-specific imaging options, etc. You have very few options with this driver and its use is most strongly discouraged by Adobe.
My postscript printer driver has disappeared from my system. I need it to create an oversize pdf using Photoshop. I have searched Adobe and tried downloading several old drivers and it just sends me in circles. I am running Windows 10 and Photoshop CC. Where do I find a current printer driver to create a postscript (.ps) file so that I can use Adobe Distiller to create my pdf file?
I have serious trouble getting colors to print accurately on my Xerox laser printer. There have been some other issues as well. In working with the tech, he provided a .ps of my document generated from the PDF I sent. Not only did the artifacts from the border of a .png file disappear from the gradient color block, but the color was finally correct! So he determined it was driver or application issues and not the printer since printing directly to the printer in PS3 came out correctly. 350c69d7ab
