windows 8 drivers

are Windows 8 drivers avail. for the 8600 OfficeJet Pro or is there a way to force windows 7 software. am running win 8 eval. version and works well, have only had a cpl probs with older software. most win 7 software loads and runs in win 8.

 

however, the software supplied with the 8600  stops loading, saying that it is not compatible with my operating system, meaning windows 8 eval.

 

any ideas?

Re: windows 8 drivers

Hi:

 

HP is not providing any support for W8 consumer preview.

 

Please see their statement regarding this at the link below.

My recommendation is to use the add a printer wizard and select your printer from the list already in windows 8.

 

It should load at least the basic drivers to get your printer to print.

Re: windows 8 drivers

was able to establish print from Windows 8 (running from a Mac Pro though Parallels) to HP 6800. 

would  not work wireless and required cable connection.

Re: windows 8 drivers

I have just upgraded to  windows 8 on a probook 4530  and found the  alternate function on the numeric button above the alphabetical keyboard is not functioning correclty. Most frustrating the @ function  on the numeric  2 key function.

 

In device manager keyboard shows as a standard PS2  which I suspect requires the driver from HP to get working.

Problem is there is no driver available.

 

Note have had a look on the net and I am not the only one having this issue.
