Printing to a PostScript file from Word

I run the an agencies print shop and we use overlays that are stored on two Ricoh Pro 8220 S printers.  Nobody I've spoken to at Ricoh or with our maintenance vendor have any idea as to how we are writing to the hard drive on the printers.  The problem I have is that the PostScript driver I have is so old, it won't install on Windows 10.  I'm trying to "Print" a Word Document to a Postscript file so I can save it to each printer for a new version of a letter.  Any help is appreciated.  I need to be able to select the PostScript print driver from the printers menu and write the PostScript file.

You might be able to install a generic old printer driver, but it won't be able to make use of the overlays. Maybe you need to set up a heritage system running ancient Windows, to install your driver.

Hey Test.  Thanks for the reply.  That would make sense needing an older version of Windows.  I'll have to see if I can have a vitual machine set up as we migrated to Windows 10 quite some time ago.

I'm going to suggest a weird workaround you can try.

Save your Word file to PDF, then "Export to" > Postscript, in Acrobat
