Microsoft Windows 11

I an looking at purchasing a used Designjet 4500 plotter for my small business.  All computers are now on W11 and before buying I would like to confirm compatibility as I see several other printers of a similar age that are having issues or are non functioning due to W11.

As this device is at end of life, any support or drivers will be by guess and by golly and support from HP be either be limited or non-existent. You would be better served by setting up a print station with Windows 7 on it than trying to print from 11.
