It is not supported period.

You could try older drivers from Windows NT or Windows 2000 for the device but they may not work or may crap out your system.

Now that i've said that you should also know that brother is one of a few companies that makes its devices compatible with each other and backword compatible with older similar devices.

The MFC-7000FC driver built into Windows "may work" with your 7050C as well as the MFC-5100C driver though some functions may not be the same and you might get unexpected results.

I would try the 5100C driver with the 7050c and see what happens, you might luck out, otherwise, too bad so sad, XP is not known for its truly excellent legacy support

Cheers
