There is no such thing as a foolish question Tony

The answer is yes you do have to install printer drivers for both OSes
The drivers may well be different for both Windows versions.
Make sure you have XP and 7 drivers. It should say on the cd.
If not you can get them from the manufacturers website
In the beginning there was the command line.
