Not necessarily. The issue was also discussed here. Read the thread through and you might find a solution.

HP now has Windows 7 drivers for the C3180 (all-in-one) which I also have.
Here is the link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...146331&lang=en&

From there you go to Windows 7 32 bit
or Windows 7 64 bit. I downloaded the 64 bit version yesterday, but was unable to
install it as I am still using the Windows 7 RC 7100 and I received an error that it had
to be at least 7600 (which probably means non-evualuation copy).
However, I am curious as to whether these drivers work with Windows 7 because I am
unwilling to purchase a new HP all-in-one printer, scanner, copier at this time.

I have a HP Photosmart C4140. The printer came with an installation CD. I plugged the printer in, then ran the CD. I then turned on the printer and it was recognized.

Thanks.
HP Photosmart C4140, isn't that a fairly new model?
The reason I am asking is that HP does not support printers, etc. for more than 4 years.
I found that out the hard way by giving my HP photosmart 1115 to my daughter because
I no longer needed it and she did. I found out they did not produce a Vista driver for it.
I bought if for an older XP machine and it worked like a charm, but it is now useless because
she had Vista and not XP. I had looked for the windows 7 drivers for the C3180 earlier and
did not see them. I searched this forum and found this thread and searched for the driver and
found it. I was just curious if anyone got it to work for the C3180. I cannot remember how old
it is and I do not want to have to buy another model just because HP does not offer the
windows 7 driver for it.
I am about to dual boot my system with Vista and Windows 7. If no one else reports back about the C3180,
I will when I get a chance to verify if it works.

Works like a charm for HP C3180 all-in-one. Much improved too!
OP get the actual Windows 7 driver (32 or 64 bit) here HP C3180 Windows 7 drivers and mark this thread as solved!
