How to install drivers from downloaded file (34 Views)
03-26-2012 12:00 AM
I have an HP Photosmart 8050 printer, just given to me, no installation CD. I downloaded this ridiculously large 180 mb file/folder to get the drivers. But there are no instructions for using this 180mb file/folder, and I have no idea where to start after it's been unzipped. I'm using Win2000, and would appreciate some simple basic instructions...the kind that HP can't be bothered to give at the download website. Thanks...Dan

Forgot to mention, I located and tried to run this msi file: PS8000.msi but a "preparing to install" screen flashes for one nanosecond, disappears, and nothing more happens. Dan
