Windows 7: HP Laserjet 1000 driver in 64 bit W7

Success!

Don't know if anyone's still having this problem, but this worked for me, and was actually quite easy (and worked for both my HP LaserJet 1100 AND Canon Pixma iP6000D, neither of which had x64 drivers). When installing my printers as network printers, the "Windows Update" option for drivers was not showing up.

I plugged the printer into my Win 7 PC. Everything installed fine. I then moved teh printer back to its network position. Added the printer as a network printer, just chose the Generic -> Text Only driver (it doesn't matter which you choose). Then I right click the printer and selected Printer Properties. Under Advanced, you can either use the dropdown menu under Driver to select the proper driver, or click New Driver... and THEN the Windows Update option appears.

I did this and everything is working flawlessly.

ENGLISH (Google translate):

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.

I believe the thread was specifically about the HP Laserjet 1000
The Laserjet 1100 did originally have x64 drivers on the Windows x64 installation CD's whereas I believe the Laserjet 1000 has never had x64 drivers of any description.

Here're the basic steps:

  1. Install pdfCreator from PDFCreator | Get PDFCreator at SourceForge.net 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.
I now print my document form Windows 7 64 bit to a laptop XP professional.

Thanks a lot!

Alternate Resolution

The way I got this to work was to print from XP Virtual PC on my 64bit Win 7 machine.

I'm going to try the XP Virtual PC fix though I have no idea where to begin other than doing a search for that software. I have an XP notebook but cannot use it as a print server because it's usually in my warehouse and I don't want to haul it back and forth to the house.

I have a new Win7 64 bit PC and was trying to get my HP Deskjet 1000 series printer to print from my machine and have just discovered what all you already have - that HP is a bunch of asses and I will never buy another HP printer and that's not an emotional statement just pure fact.

In the meantime if this suggestion by monaghk works that would be great - I think.

Windows 7 64-bit and HP Laserjet 1000 solution

I resolved this problem recently. Host the HP Laserjet 1000 on a 32-bit machine like WinXP. Assign this as your print server on your home network. Your Win7 machine will be somewhere on the network. Install the host based drivers on the WinXP machine. Modify the DOS driver and change the port to USB. On the Win 7 64 bit machine, install a new printer as a LOCAL PRINTER (although it is not attched to the Win 7 machine). Create a new port. Local port type. For the port name use \\PrintServerName\PrinterShareName. Click on Windows update button next to update the drivers. Choose HP Laserjet 1100 MS as the driver for the Win 7 machine. Save with whatever name and do a test print.
