    I had AirPrint working with a non-HP printer with a simple workaround for Windows 7, it was basically just a simple command line execution that allows the printer to be recognized as an Airprint printer. Now after updating to iOS 5, the printer is no longer recognized as an Airprint printer. Just wondering if anybody has any workarounds or ideas on how to get this rectified or if there is a new way to get Airprint to work with a non Airprint printer.

    And there is this article suggesting a newer version of the airprint activator for Mac. I don't know about the Windows version.

    Fingerprint works for me on Windows 7.

    AirPrint Printing finally solved on Windows 7

    Thanks all, FingerPrint worked for me as well. Wow, what a relief. That was a frustrating search for a solution. Problem solved.
