In the Devices and Printers window in the Control Panel, right click your printer and then select Properties. Change to the Hardware tab.

Here, double click the IEEE 1284.4 Printing Support line to open up its properties. Notice that all the buttons on the Driver tab except Driver Details are greyed out.

Click the Change Settings button on the General tab. Now this dialog will close and reopen.

Change to the Driver tab again, and click Update Driver.

Click Browse my Computer for Driver Software.

On the page that opens, select Let me pick from a list...

Then click the Browse button and navigate to the folder containing the drivers you extracted earlier and select the file hpc1015w.inf. If you have hidden file extensions it should be the only file visible.

And to fix the speed issue

1. Go to Start, right click Computer and choose Manage
2. Go to Device Manager
3. Find 1284.4 dot4usb Printing Support
4. Right click it and choose Update Driver
5. Choose ‘Browse my computer for driver software.‘
6. Choose USB Virtual Printing Support
7. Follow the prompt, exit out of Device Manager
8. Go to Start>Devices and Printers
9. Right click HP 1012 HB, choose Printer Properties
10. Go to the Port Tab, find Virtual USB Printing Support (Not dot4) and check that.
11. Click Ok.

Does anyone know how to script batch cmd method to install this driver ? Time to time I have to
reinstall 3 of my computers hoping to find a easier way of installing this HP 1012 windows 7 64 driver.

LaserJet 1012 on x64
I have an HP LaserJet 1012 print hooked up to my 7 x64 RC computer. It does print; however, it prints one page about every 10 seconds--much slower than when it was hooked up to XP or Vista. Is there something wrong w/ the drivers for it? Or is it time for a new printer?
