HP no longer offers an operating driver for Windows 10 for the printer Samsung CLP 300

Good afternoon,

he issue is that:
HP no longer offers an operating driver for Windows 10 for the printer Samsung CLP 300, see page https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/samsung-clp-300-color-laser-printer-series/19133844.
Only the Samsung Easy Printer Manger, which was already available when I purchased the CLP 300 and which does not contain a driver for Windows 10, is offered for download.
But, as far as can remember, from a certain point in time a version 3 driver for the CLP 300 was automatically installed via the automatic updates of Windows 10, which replaced the version 2 driver of the Samsung Easy Printer Manger.
This driver was apparently programmed for the CLP 315 and other printers for Windows and was also available on the CLP 315 download page. However, it seems now, that for the all printers of the Samsung CPL series are no drivers available for Windows 10.
In case of my CPL 300 printer, the version 3 driver causes an additional consumption of two colors, so that the printouts were smeared with these colors and the toner supply was used up within a short time.
I found out, that the CPL 300 works with the printing language SPL (developed by MS and Samsung).
For this printing language, a framework was developed for Unix. Based on this framework, for the following list of printers, Unix drivers should already exist.

  1.  Could the framework mentioned above generate drivers for the operating system Windows 10?
    

Samsung offered for a printer in the list above up six different printer drivers which used different languages before the Samsung printer driver devision.
2. Are all the six printer drivers in question incompatible to Windows 10?
3. Is the developments of a V4 printer driver for the Samsung CLP 300 printer with the actual Printer Driver SDK by means of the wizard in the Visual Studio 2019 community edition too complicated for an ordinary user?

The vendor of the hardware is responsible for providing the proper driver for that hardware. As you are talking about a Samsung printer, you should contact Samsung support about this issue. Microsoft provides some generic drivers which work in some fashion for some printers, but if you need a specific driver you need to talk with the hardware vendor.
