I was not able to make this driver file work. However I did find a workaround to my problem.

These steps did resolve the issue:
1. Open Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del)
2. Click Sevices Tab and then Services Button (Bottom Right)
3. Under Name find "Windows Update"
4. Right click "Windows Update" and select Stop. do not close
5. Open Window Exploper and browse to C:\Windows
6. Delete the Folder "SoftwareDistribution"
7. Go back to Servies, Right click "Windows Update" and select Start
After this, do your usual routine to install the printer, and select "Windows Update" to find driver (it shouldn't fail now), and afterwards, you should be able to find the correct (in this case LaserJet 5si) driver.

I hope this helps.

I thought you were looking for the 5N driver, which is what my original post is about. I've used the same file on 3 different Windows 7 installs and it's never failed me.

Hopefully you didn't delete anything important in that folder. There are a lot of log files and install files in there

Strange happenings.......of course we are working with Windows, so it's somewhat expected........

No, I meant the folder on your computer (C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution). Glad it all worked out for you.

there's a thing that is called Fixio Driver Finder. this program scans your system and downloads drivers specifically to it easy, you don't have to be a computer expert and know all the details.

The file is on the way to you, Michael! After you save the attached file in the email, when you go to install the printer and it asks for the driver location, use the "Have File..." options and locate the oem25.inf file. The HP5N as well as a bunch of other golden oldies, are in there also.

I can't verify that it will absolutely work on your 64-bit software, but I'm thinking it should be backward compatible.

Hope it helps you out!!! Good luck!!!
