[Note: I don't use Windows.]

The situation is not as bad as it may seem.  IIRC, there exists a
small printer driver which does essentially nothing, only passing the
file directly to the printer without any processing, and this is what
you really need.  I know that this small utility is freely available,
but unfortunately I've forgotten its name and where you can download
it (the last time I've heard about it is a few years ago, so I don't
know whether it has ever been updated to recent Windows versions).

A search in some ftp servers for Windows stuff might help to find it.
