HP 450C and Windows 7 64 Bit

Does anyone now of anyway I can get my 450C E/AO printer to operate on the nw windows 7 format in 64 Bit ?

I am in the process of upgrading hardware for the new AutoCAD software requirements (current machine slowing down and crashing) and I do not want to dispose of the HP450C.

Re: HP 450C and Windows 7 64 Bit

The 64 bit version of the XP driver is available here.  It should work fine on 64 bit versions of XP, Vista and Windows 7.   Unzip the file to a temporary directory, then go to Add Printer and select "Have a disk", then point to the directory where you unzipped the driver.

I installed the linked driver, and found that I can't print in color, only greyscale.  Is there a Win7/64 driver that includes color capability available?

Re: HP 450C and Windows 7 64 Bit

this driver is for hp 430 monochrome. It will never print in colors. And for what I know, HP is not developing it.
