Re: setup installation of hp photosmart for windows 8

Muchas gracias amigo!  Yes, I used your recomendation and install succesfully just the driver for HP Photosmart 5515 for Windows 8.  Now, what I cannot use is the scanning software.  The printer software IS NOT applicable for Windows 8 and I cannot install the scanning capabilities (the setup disk wil not run with Windows 8.  Any solution for that, maybe a different scan software or compatible printer?  Thanks again.

Re: setup installation of hp photosmart for windows 8

Hi,

 

I believe all vendors will release drivers and utilities .... for their products around the same time with Windows 8. BUT not all, some older products (say 2 or 3yrs old) may miss out. I've posted my comments few times: A product has been running flawlessly and MS "makes" it useless. Who is at fault ? MS, HP, Dell, Brother, Toshia, Samsung, Sony ... or user ?

 

Hope this makes sense.

Many thanks, the registration process for the printer is a little labourious but once done should be quicker. The link above works perfectly. Thank you.

Re: setup installation of hp photosmart for windows 8

Can't find software suite for Windows 8.1.  My model is HP Photosmart B110A.  Prints fine but scan software incompatible.  Other threads on here seem to indicate that it isn't and won't be available - is this correct?
