Has anyone gotten any of HP's Photosmart series printers to work on x86? I downloaded the Windows 7 client HP 7800 series driver for my 7850 from catalog.update.microsoft.com and tried to install by device manager. It said that it was incompatible. I tried to install anyway and no go.

I checked Windows Update and had the OS search specifically for a driver. They both found nothing.

Then I downloaded right from HP the Vista x86 driver. Tried to install normal, in compatibility mode for Vista, and also their SPs and still no go.

Anyone have this or similar successfully installed? I even read that MS tested my printer specifically for Windows 7, so I dunno. I mean, I even got my ancient ATI TV Wonder PCI goin here in 7 just recently haha.

They are windows .cab files. Windows should open them, as they are just compressed files. You can use a common program like winzip.

Yeah, I extracted to a folder and tried to install from that. It did what I said, unfortunately.

I just visited the MS site again and it seems when I type in Photosmart 7800, there are all sorts of drivers listed. I'll probably be able to sort it out. TY.

You only need the AMD64 one the others are not for your system.

You don't need to extract the cab files just browse to where they are located.

Choose LPT1: (printer port) as indicated here

If the 3600 series do not work you can use the 3500 series
