Windows 7: HP color laser jet 1600

HP color laser jet 1600

I installed windows 7 RC clean because i had the beta.
I had installed the beta over my vista os with no problems with drivers for all my devices.
After installing win 7 RC i realised that none of my devices were installed, printer, scanner camera etc.
When i tried installing the printer With the old disk it re-directed me to the HP site for the right driver (x64).
After downloading the driver it will not install, i tried using the compability to Vista with no luck , i have tried for hours different ways without success.
I really need the printer, please if anybody has ideas to how to get the driver to install i whould really apreciate it.

Have you tried installing the printer *without* installing a third party driver?

if it is local just install a new printer, tell it local and let it look for the printer to see if it recognizes it on its own....

Actually there was another post HP Color LaserJet 1600 problem that states that the Vista driver works....

Thanks for the fast reply, i had already tried this but i had put the install file on the desktop and could not get to it but i used windows explorer to find the file and it installed fine.
Thanks a lot, Claude
