How can I use an Apple LaserWriter with a Windows 8 PC?

I’m trying to connect an Apple LaserWriter 16/600 PS printer to a Windows 8.1 Update (32 bit) PC. The connection is through a parallel port. Windows 8 does not list Apple printers in its list of printers. Does anyone know if it’s possible to get it working either by downloading a suitable driver or by using another driver?

Thanks

    Thanks Hovsep, have already tried these, but unfortunately they don't work with Win 8.

      you can try to install with administrative rights and compatibility, or use another driver of another laserwriter more updated?

    Introduced: 9/1/1994, perhaps no more supported so to find the correct driver can be difficult
