Windows 7: Connecting Windows 7 PCs to HP 2605dn through network

Connecting Windows 7 PCs to HP 2605dn through network

We have an HP 2605dn printer connected to a Windows XP machine and networked to our office. We recently purchased two new PCs and have Windows 7 x64 on them. In trying to set up connection on the new machines to the networked HP printer, we can see the printer referenced in the 'Add a Printer' dialog box, but it will not connect. It says that it is "looking for .INF on <UNKNOWN>" and requires us to find this file before proceeding.

What could be causing this? Is it because the host PC for the printer is on XP?

Thanks,
Steve

Are the two new PC's added to the network workgroup name? Has the driver/software been installed on the two new PC's?

Yes, the two computers are definitely on the same Workgroup as the Printer. We have not found the correct Windows 7 x64 drivers. Do you have a link?
