this will download the "mflpro" folder. Open the "mflpro" folder and select "Setup9700" and follow instructions. Voila! your Brother MFC-9700 now works in Windows "7".
I've since printed numerous documents in Windows "7" using the "Vista" driver for the MFC-9700 now, without one hitch!
ISSUE that was solved: after upgrading OS to Windows 7, now discovered that "Windows 7 is NOT compatible with Brother MFC-9700 printer."
TRICK: So again, even though you recently upgraded to Win "7", the Windows "VISTA" driver DOES work for successfully operating the Brother MFC-9700 in Windows "7".
Note: on the Windows VISTA download page, you do "Not" need to download "add printer wizard driver" at all. Skip it. The only download you need is the Windows VISTA "Full Driver & Software Package" (58.67MB)
