Vista Duplex Patch for Deskjet 5500 Series

Some printer models with automatic duplexers do not properly print the back page in Vista.  In these models the back side is printed updside down regardless of the driver settings.

 

The attached zip file has a patch and instructions to correct this issue for the Deskjet 5500 printers.

 

Patches for other models may be available here.

 

 

The zip file has two files:

 

DJ5500.pdf     contains detailed instructions to apply the patch.  Opening this file requires Adobe Reader or a similar pdf viewer, available for free download.

 hpf4a63l.gpd  is the actual patch file.

 

To apply the patch download the zip file attached here.  Extract the files into the %temp% directory, then open the  DJ5500.pdf file and follow the instructions.
