Hello
I'm looking for the printer driver for a "HP Designjet 500 42" I can only find the one from Windows NT and one from 2006 and they do not work with Windows Server 2019 / Windows 10

Where can I find a current printer driver?

Thanks a lot
René

Go to "add printer" feature to add your printer. When you get to the window where you select the Manufacture and Model select HP and look for Designjet 500. If it's not in the list click the blue button "windows update" this does not update your operating system, but it will update your cab files, driver files. The update takes a few minutes, after look under HP, not Hewlett Packard, in the manufactures list, then you will find the "Designjet 500 42" by HP" driver for your W10 computer.
