Will the Windows 7 driver for P1007 work on Windows 8 64-bit?

[ Edited ]

Can I use the Windows 7 printer driver for the Laserjet P1007 on a Windows 8 64-bit system - if not, when will the Windows 8 driver be available?

Hi,

 

I don't think a Win 7 driver will work for you. The only information I have right now is that a driver is scheduled for late 2012. What happens when you connect a USB cable to a Win 8 system with this model?  Can you get basic print functionality or does it fail to load an in-os driver?

 

Keep an eye on the downloads page

Hi CherylSan,

 

I am thinking from some of my previous testing it will work. Give it a shot, and let me know what happens?

I just tried it and the Windows 7 driver seems to work fine on Windows 8 for the P1007. I printed an 11 page document and it looks just fine. I downloaded the driver, ran the install and the printer was automatically recognized. Seems to be a good workaround until the Windows 8 driver is released. Thanks for the advice. P.S. This is from a former HP employee:smileywink:.
