HP LaserJet p1005 windows 8 driver ?

Hello,

I've been waiting for a while to come out windows 8 64bit driver for my printer HP LaserJet p1005. The windows 7 driver doesn't find my printer.

Please tell me at least how much longer will it take to come out, so I can take the appropriate measures to be able to print when it's important.

Since coming out with Windows 8, Microsoft obsoleted a lot of printers for no reason forcing the user to upgrade to newer hardware.   Just watch the HP web site as they determine to support this product.

Hi pefo_1,

 

Maybe the next steps helps :smileywink:

 

To install on Windows 8 apply the following steps:

 

1. Download the driver that is available on the HP site:

 Note: Download this file to the Windows Desktop.

 

2. Then select the downloaded file with the mouse right click Properties.

 

3. Select the tab that says Compatibility.

 

4. Then check the box that says "Run in compatibility mode for" and select Windows 7

 

5. Under Privilege Level check the box that says "Run as administrator"

 

6. Click OK to close the Properties window.

 

7. Then double-click it on the downloaded file to begin the installation.

Note: Remember that the USB cable must be unplugged before installation.

 

It should appear as follows:

I hope these steps will be helpful with the Windows 8 installation of the Laserjet P1005 printer.

It doesn't work. Gets stuck on "Adding print drivers..."  and I have to shut it down with task manager after hours of waiting.

it crashed. But I found a HP directory in program files after than. There were setup.exe here, I tried to run it in compatibility mode. Crashed too with "file not found message". I extracted *.cab files content from this directory into the same directory. And open device manager. There were other device - HP P1005, I tried to install driver manualy from device manager  and show him inf file from HP directory in program files. And it works.

 

Seems to me that it cannot be recommended to common users. But I was desperate, I needed to print.
