HP Laserjet 1012 (x64) Drivers

Hey,

I have a HP Laserjet 1012 printer, and I cant get drivers to load, I tried the Vista x64 drivers from HP, they arent seen by the wizard, and if I try to force it to use them (manually pick driver, then "have disk") it reports that there are no drivers for 64 bit in the folder with the drivers in it.. Anyone managed to get this printer working?

I have a Laserjet 1010, and I'm using the x64 drivers from HP without any trouble. Just that I cannor get the pronter preferences page to load.

Try installing the drivers this way:

You probably got your drivers as a self-extracting archive. Extract this archive to a folder.

In the Devices and Printers window in the Control Panel, right click your printer and then select Properties. Change to the Hardware tab.

Here, double click the IEEE 1284.4 Printing Support line to open up its properties. Notice that all the buttons on the Driver tab except Driver Details are greyed out.

Click the Change Settings button on the General tab. Now this dialog will close and reopen.

Change to the Driver tab again, and click Update Driver.

Click Browse my Computer for Driver Software.

On the page that opens, select Let me pick from a list...

Then click the Browse button and navigate to the folder containing the drivers you extracted earlier and select the file hpc1015w.inf. If you have hidden file extensions it should be the only file visible.

It should work fine.

Let us know how it goes.

HP1012 Still off-line

I followed the procedure outlined by Pillainp to the letter and still get the message that hpc1015w.inf doesn't contain any 64 bit drivers. It was looking good right up to the final pop-up dialog box. I'm running Win 7 Pro 64 bit on a Dell XPS420. Any suggestions?

@Bufub:
Dis you specifically download the Vista 64-bit drivers from HP?

The file should be named "lj1010serieshb-vista64.zip".

How about on a network

I've got the Vista drivers now on my Windows 7 PC, but printer is over a home network, connected to an XP based machine. I cannot get it to work with either XP or vista drivers.

Laserjet 1012 on remote XP based system
Can't configure as network printer on local Win 7 based system
do have another remote printer working, so I know I have access over the network, and my Windows 7 system does "see" the shared remote 1012 printer, just cant talk to it

I think you are updating the wrong printing support device. There were 3 in my case.

Double click the IEEE 1284.4 Printing Support line to open up its properties

I had the same problem at first and then realized I am updating the driver for the DOT printing support and not the IEEE 1284.4 Printing Support. I am glad to report that despite what Microsoft and HP tell you that the LaserJet 1012 is not compatible with Windows 7, it runs just fine with Vista Drivers and I can get full functionality including printing preferences etc.
