The XPS printer driver (XPSDrv) is an enhanced, GDI-based Version 3 printer driver that was used prior to Windows Vista. XPSDrv printer drivers (like the GDI-based ones) consist of three main components.
To use this site to find and download updates, you need to change your security settings to allow ActiveX controls and active scripting. To get updates but allow your security settings to continue blocking potentially harmful ActiveX controls and scripting from other sites, make this site a trusted website. If you need a driver for the PCI network card, chip RTL8139 or RTL810x, then we advise to download Realtek PCI Fast Ethernet Drivers. Download drivers (Upd: ): Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller LAN Driver 711 for Windows 7 (10 MB). This download provides the Realtek. High Definition Audio Driver for the 3.5mm audio jack on the Intel® NUC Kits NUC8i7HxKx. This audio driver is required if you plan to connect a microphone or headset to the audio jack or want to use the TOSLINK connection on the back of the Intel NUC.
These are the three main components of XPSDrv printer drivers:
The configuration module of an XPSDrv printer driver provides the same functions as the configuration module of the Printer Interface DLL of a GDI-based driver, but the XPSDrv configuration module also supports the Print Ticket and Print Capabilities technologies.
The render module of an XPSDrv printer driver does not, necessarily, use the GDI-based rendering functions of a GDI-based printer driver. Instead, the render module of an XPSDrv printer driver consists of zero or more filters and a configuration file that describes the actions of each filter. The filters in the rendering module of an XPSDrv printer driver must also support the Print Ticket technology to correctly process the print job for the printer.
