This driver version for the Xerox Xprint 4915 PS printer contains the PPD or PosctScript (PS) printer description files. These files are text files that are capable of providing a standardized method for utilizing the different features of devices that have PS interpreters. These features are memory size, page sizes, various film and paper handling methods, finishing features like duplex stapling and printing, and font availability. These files provide applications with the required information pertaining to a device’s functions, including default settings, feature selections, changing the settings, requesting current settings and others that may be useful in scheduling print jobs. Every device has a PostScript printer description file related to it. These files for devices that are available to a host PC are located on that same PC. The applications on the host PC are capable of parsing the PPD files for determining the feature list accessible to a device.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The PPD files utilized by the Xerox Xprint 4915 PS printer device also has structures that enable blind parsing of a feature list and applications are allowed to parse the structures regardless if they have an understanding of the feature list or not. The application can then create a UI (user interface) for the feature list contained in the PPD file for the chosen device. The same file also holds the PS language code for invoking every feature. In the event that a user chooses a feature via the UI like duplex printing or manual feed for example, each chosen feature’s code will be extracted from the file and placed in the output file prior to the sending of the output file to a device. Local customizations can likewise be added to a PPD file at the user site for accommodating modifications to the printer device like the device’s configuration or addition of memory. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Xerox XPrint 4915 PS errors before installing any driver updates.
