Windows 8 drivers/software for C7280 Photosmart Printer/Scanner

[ Edited ]

Hi,

I have a HP Photosmart C7280 printer/scanner. I have recently installed Windows 8 Release Preview and discovered that the software that I installed on Windows 7 doesn't seem to work so well. On the installer the only butotn displayed is "Exit" - hence I can't install the software/drivers.

 

Are there any available solutions for Windows 8 yet (even if its only beta software - I'm happy to give it a go)?

 

Thanks

Jamie

Re: Windows 8 drivers/software for C7280 Photosmart Printer/Scanner

Hi Travis_C,

Thank you very much for the reply.

 

That gets me as far as scanning using Windows' built in scan wizard which is OK however that only gives me the ability to save as a bitmap, .jpeg, .gif, .png or .tiff.

 

HP's software that I used in Windows 7 alowed me to save the scan as a PDF which is what I want in this case. Is there any way of getting that software to run in Windows 8? Moreover, will you be brining out a Windows 8 version of that software?

 

thanks

Jamie

Hello jamiet

 

I am not aware of the software plans for Windows 8. It is still a preview though and there may be changes later. You may want to have a Windows 7 machine on the side or dual booted if PDF functionality is important for you. I hope I have been helpful.

I figured out how to install the full set of drivers for the C7280.  Go to my post here:

When I installed my printer I wasn't able to find the C7280 model and used the closest thing listed which was the 7500 series. It has worked fine for the Windows 8 64bit.

Issue has not been resolved and I have been driving myself crazy and found out many others are also having issues with the HP software.  After install, the HP Solution Center states that "HP Solution Center cannot run because your device installation is NOT complete.  I ahve tried every which way to install successfully.  I have even removed all registry entries for my printer/scanners and did a fresh install of the driver.  It just PLAIN does NOT work PERIOD.
