HP DesignJet 450C with DesignJet 430 64 bit driver - will it work?

HP Recommended
HP DesignJet 450C
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm about to buy a HP DesignJet 450C, but I can't find any 64 bit driver for it. I successfully installed a DesignJet 430 driver on my Windows 10 box.  Can I expect that it will work with the 450C?

 

I'm not interested in color printing, just technical drawings. 

 

I would appreciate any idea, alternative drivers, etc.

Thanks for posting the question.As you mentioned, there is no full software installation for Win 10 64 bit on hp support site.

 

You need to use the built-in driver comes with Windows 10 to install the the printer.

Hello KalmanKeri,

 

HP has stopped selling or providing service support for DesignJet 450C for many years already. So updates for driver, software or firmware are not available. If the DesignJet that you are going to buy is a used printer, you will have to consider printer reliable due to part tear and wear over the years. Service replaceable parts such as belt, motors, gears, rollers, electronics no longer available from HP and may be difficult and costly to get. Please consider about the challenges you may face for hardware support and software/driver support with new Window release

 

Back to your driver query, please review this post and try some of the steps suggested. I hope it works for you.

You may also consider some latest designjet printers that are fully supported by HP, such as DesignJet T120

Hello BOTaK!

 

Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately all the links in the suggested topic are broken so I couldn't download any driver.

 

I think this old model will do it as a first plotter. Its price reflects its condition.  When it finally breaks down I will consider buying a more recent model.
