Windows 7: Installed Win 7

29 Oct 2009   #11

Windows7 beta 7000

I got the same message so I installed the Vista64 drivers. The computer doesn't recognize the printer properly but it prints. When the new ones come out I'll update.

Oh, and the stupid HP installation program doesn't work. I downloaded the Vista drivers and when they were in my system files I "add printer" and directed it to the .inf file and it loaded.

We have a Photosmart C4680 which Win7 autoloaded drivers for as soon as we turned it on. This driver allows us to print normally, and scan by right clicking on printer in Devices & Printers which brings up Windows scan utility.

When trying to install the special software that came with the printer, it failed repeatedly. We decided we didn't need it anyway. Just took the drivers.

I don't have a printer attached to my computer since it's a laptop and I don't have wireless one either. I was just talking in general.

I got my old HP scanner software to work using a compatibility mode. Now all the buttons work as normal. You may have to install as admin and maybe compatibility there also, don't remember.
