deskjet 1280 windows 7 32-bit driver

It seems HP doesn't have a Win7 32-bit driver for this printer. What do I do? Throw it away??

Any ideas anyone?

I needed a Win 7 Home 64-bitdriver - no way!
But we found out that the Win Vista 64-bits worked! You could try the 32-bits Vistaversion. It might work too.

Thanks. I thought of this, but HP said "Don't do it!" :-)

I'll give it a try.

And the Vista driver for 1280 is working in Win7. If not you have done something wrong in installation.
Correction about 1220 driver in Win7. Think they withdraw the driver from rc1 to rtm.

No, correction again. The Deskjet 1220c driver is in Windows 7 :)

Re: deskjet 1280 windows 7 32-bit driver

I've got to say that, while I'm a seasoned programmer, this issue has me completely stumped!

According to the HP site, a limited Win7 driver should have been installed the moment I connected the USB cable to the printer. This, of course, hasn't happened in my case.
The same goes for the 1220c Win7 driver - the HP site says the same thing. That also means that there is in fact no driver that is downloadable.

Clearly I'm totally fuddled by this.
What would be the best way of getting this printer to work - step by step :-)

Thanks!

Go to the usual "add printer wizard" under devices and printers in Windows 7 and click on "Microsoft update" button to get the 1220 driver.
