Printing from Win 10 to an Imagewriter II or LQ?

I used to print from Windows 2000 to an IWII shared from my G4 Cube that had a serial port in place of the modem. I've not done anything recent with it.

Any Windows drivers were for the C-Itoh 8510, which the ImageWriter was based on. Those drivers are ancient and not supported with Windows 10. On the Linux side, GhostScript used to have a built-in rudimentry black and white driver (appledmp) that has since been dropped from the GhostScript build tree due to lack of use and maintenance.

That linked driver site is deeply sketchy. Man.

Anyway, not Windows 10 but I can attest having success printing fine from DOS programs after building a cable to go from a PC 9-pin serial port to an Imagewriter II. The C.Itoh 8510 doesn't have *great* driver support but it was common enough to usually get by. Windows, er, 2.11 had a driver...
