I need to use a PCI card with a parallel port on it with my PC but I am not able to find a driver for it, so, how can I use this card?

The only information I can read from the card is

ZEON2 94V-0 on the backside and PCI-1284on the front.

My OS is Windows 7 with 64 bit.

Is there a way to use such a card without having the driver?

Below you can see some images of the card ...

    insert the card into your PC and look for the Hardware IDs of the used chip and google for this ID to find a driver. – magicandre1981 Jun 7 '16 at 4:21

    It is from 'Oxford Semiconductors' and I got the driver from some driver webpage. The official Oxford webpage had many drivers for their devices but not for my card so I had to look somewhere else, but after some time I was lucky. – fizzpin Jun 8 '16 at 7:37

From the pictures we can't tell you wil chip is uses. Install the PCI card to your system, run Device Manager and find the device. Look at it's properties and under details select Hardware Ids:

Now look in a PCI Database which chip it is and google now for a driver.
