Windows 8 64-bit driver update for LaserJet P1006?

When will Windows 8 64-bit driver update be available for HP LaserJet P1006?  I would prefer to not have to purchase a new printer.  I have checked the website for downloads, but the message says the update will be available in late 2012.... it's now 2013!  I'm ready to print!

Re: Windows 8 64-bit driver update for LaserJet P1006?

Hello kitkat915,

 

Try with the basic driver with the following steps:

 

1. Download the next driver to the windows desktop >> ljP1000_P1500-HB-pnp-win64-en.exe [1/1, 3.54M]

 

   2. Once downloaded in the desktop right click the driver file and select Properties.

 

     3. Click on Compatibility tab.

 

        4. Check the box where it says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"

 

           5. In the dropdown option select "Windows 7"

 

      6. And in Privilege Level check the box where it says "Run this program as an administrator"

 

   7. Now click on Apply and OK buttons to close the Properties window.

 

8. Then start the instalation, double click the driver file "ljP1000_P1500-HB-pnp-win64-en"

 

It may look like the next screenshot:

Some of the HP printers do accept this workaround (see HP's Support Page for the P1006), but many do not. Unfortunately, the P1006 is one of those.

Re: Windows 8 64-bit driver update for LaserJet P1006?

It is still not avilable and it is April 25. I can print with every new Linux distro but my family can't print. I run the compatiable mode and other drivers and it prints once and than never prints again!

 

I should expect that a printer can last longer than 5 years? People dont print much anymore and I don't need to have a laser printer that the drivers go out.

 

Plus one for Open Source and Minus one for Windows 8 and closed drivers.

When will Windows 8 64-bit driver update be available for HP LaserJet P1006? I had to buy a new printer when I started Vista. I don't like to do it again.

Does anyone have any confirmation that they are actually going to make a driver for this printer?  I'm beginning to have doubts.

The website says it is coming soon. If you are having trouble printing, you can try to download an alternative driver to get it functioning. 

 

(Shane_R) has a great post on how to download it.

The alternative driver does not work for the P1006.

 

Coming soon means? 1 day, 3 months?
