Windows 7: HP Toolbox does not work

HP Toolbox does not work

After installing Win 7 my HP Toolbox gives me a message that says the Officejet Pro 550 driver is not installed.

This is crazy since the printer works just fine but the Toolbox will not work. The toolbox is mainly needed for ink supply notifications.

HP website says that I have to get drivers from Microsoft Win 7 since they do not plan to provide new drivers from HP until closer to the product release date in Oct.

Anyone else having this problem or have any suggestions on what to do to get the toolbox working again?

You can get nearly all the functionality of the HP ToolboxFX simply by browsing to the printer's IP address in your browser.

Double-click on the printer Under "Devices and Printers" and then on "Customize your printer" - then "Ports" - just scroll down the list. Enter that IP address in your browser.

Everything is there except for the "print cleaning page" function.

BTW, try using Windows to search for an updated driver - it's likely available now (mine was).

Just enter the proper info or while you are there see if your printer has the toolboxFX there.

One major problem with a Chevy Blazer is that it has no place for storing anything, except a tiny pocket where the jack goes, and what little extra space it has is already full. I have Googled some to see if I could find a premade toolbox that would fit the vehicle, but found nothing that I...
