Windows 7: HP Laserjet 1000 driver in 64 bit W7

64 bit Older Laserjet drivers

I was not thinking about older devices when I purchased a 64 bit WIN 7 system. I have a Laserjet 5M, 10 or 15 yrs old? on our network. I chose to have WIN 7 get the driver automatically from the internet and I was up and printing in less than a minute.

Windows 7 64-bit

Yes and that works because those printers have their own print processors. Laserjet 1000s are host-based printers, dummy printers that rely on the OS of the machine they're attached to in order to print. As there is no 64-bit driver for the HP1000, this is simply not possible with any 64-bit OS.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

My old HP 1220C inkjet printer is supported, even on x64 through Windows Update. I can't see any system how hp decides to support some printers, ans others not.

And what is nearly unbelievable: My Epson Stylus Color 600, more than 12 years old, is supported too.

Windows 7 Home Premium X64

For some crazy reason, they still don't want to support the Lazerjet 1000. It's not on that list. And if it's a host-based printer, how come it works with the computer turned off. I can start a print job of 500 copies, shut the computer off and the printer keeps on going until it finishes, or runs out of paper. I can add paper and it will continue. The only time I need to fire up the computer again is to start another job going.

Anyway, I guess I can just hook the printer to the old XP computer.

Hi, I was able to configure the HP laserjet 1000 in win 7 to 64 bit. I have Ubuntu installed via CUPS printer sharing, and taking the driver Generic "MS Publisher Color Printer", I hope they serve, is the only way in which I could configure the printer, a greeting.

An even better work around!

Here're the basic steps:

  1. Install pdfCreator from PDFCreator | Get PDFCreator at on your Windows 7 machine. This is a 'virtual printer' that turns anything you send to it into a PDF file. It appears as a regular printer in windows.
  2. Create a shared folder on the computer with the printer attached. I called mine 'Spool' and put it in my root directory.
  3. Open up PDFCreator and go to Printer --> Options --> Auto Save.
  4. Check the 'Use Auto-save' box. Select pdf as the format to use.
  5. Check the 'Use this directory for auto-save' box. Enter the shared folder on the other computer that you created in step 2.
  6. Close the pdfcreator properties window.
  7. Install Batch Doc Print from batch print pdf and doc files,print directory on the machine with the Laserjet 1000 attached.
  8. Open Batch Doc Print. Go to Tasks --> Watch Folder.
  9. Click 'Browse' and select the shared folder you created in step 2.
  10. Check the 'Monitor the folder when windows start up box.'
  11. Click 'Add' and then OK.
Now all you have to do is set PDFCreator to be your default printer on your Windows 7 machine and make sure your printer computer is turned on when you want to print! The only downside to this is that Batch Doc Print isn't free, so you have to click 'Try' every time your computer starts up. This doesn't limit it's functionality, so for me it's not a big deal.
OK, you got me thinking about this work around. So I tried it. And it works, but not to my satisfaction. That Batch Doc Print is okay, but annoying and not cheap. So then I had the epiphany! I installed PDF Creator on my XP box instead and set it up as a network printer (so it would download a variety of drivers for 95, 98, xp, vista, win7, etc).

Then I configured PDF Creator to auto-save to a specific folder (using timedate as default name). Then I told it to print after the save to the LJ1000 hooked to it via USB.

Next I set the new PDF Creator printer as a sharable printer.

Next, on my WIN7 I created a new network printer and selected the PDF Creator.

Now, whenever I print I just select the PDF Creator printer and voila! The document is printed on the LJ1000 just like old times.

I hope this is helpful.

Win7 Home Premium 64 bit
Win 7 64 bit prints to XP 32 bit with laserjet 1000 printer USB

Just did it in about 15 min. Next install will take about 5 min.

TraderDoc, you are the man with that PDF Creator program. My Win7 64 bit laptop now prints to my XP 32 bit laptop with a HP laserjet 1000 attached via USB.

Make sure to install the PDF creator as a SERVER on the XP computer.

Ive been refilling my 15A cartridges using inkowl refills at about 10.00 a reload

The printing is a little slow, but hey you dont have to buy another printer.
