I had no problem using the Vista 64 bit driver with my 1012 when I was running Windows 7 Beta, but since the new RC release the driver do not work anymore.
Some people suggest installing driver in compatibility mode, but this does not seem possible with the driver for the 1012 since there is no setup packaged with the drivers.
Driver for vista x64 are located here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/S
I have also tried the 32 bit, and the driver for the 1018 with no success...
Is there any compatibility list for windows 7 from HP, as there was one for vista a few years back?

I hate to say it, but when I do the Windows 7 upgrade, it has told me that this hardware will not be compatable with Windows 7. I would surely hope that this printer would be able to be supported somehow.
Does anyone have any thoughts for installing the Vista driver for the 1012?

Many thanks for the procedure! Getting my LaserJet 1012 working with Windows 7 (64 bit) was the last major problem I had to solve with the upgrade from Vista. I really appreciate the good advice.

Hmmm...The 3055 driver stopped working after a couple of weeks, probably related to a Windows 7 update. Now I get the message "Unsupported Personality: PCL" on the printer instead of the text I was trying to print.
Fell back to a 1015 host based driver, which takes about 10 seconds to start printing. Anyone have a better solution?

I also installed the 3055, and it worked for several days. Then I also got an error message: "Unsupported Personality: PCL"
