HP Designjet 800 Plotter Drivers

HP Recommended
Designjet 800
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good day everyone

 

       I am trying to find the driver for an HP Designjet 800 42 inch plotter. I am running Windows 10 64 bit and it seems I am having a rather difficult time locating this driver from a virus free zone. I would very much apreciate anyones help or assistance in locating this driver.

 

Thank you all very much for your time and wish you all a great day.

 

Thanks

The Windows 7 x64 drivers available from HP here for the Designjet 800 should work fine in Windows 10 x64.

The driver pages have been reorganized, the current link for Designjet 800 drivers for Windows 7 x64 (which should work fine in Windows 10 x64) are here:

Has anyone been able to find the printer driver/software for HP Designjet 800.  Just spent an hour on the phone with HP and they said it was discontinued and nowhere to be found - please help!

FYI... None of these drivers work for the HPDJ 800.

What operating system?  I just downloaded the driver on my Windows 10 x64 system and it installed fine.  Note the installation is a bit different - you need to run the downloaded file.  This will prompt for a location to unzip the driver.  Make note of the directory where the files are unzipped.  You can then go to the Devices and Printers folder, add a printer, select the proper port, then select "Have disc" and browse to the folder where the driver was stored.

 

The driver is signed and there are various models of Designjet 500, 510 and 800 offered.

We use Windows 10 x64 on all of our computers.  I could not find a driver for the HPDJ 800 so I used the one for the 500 as someone suggested.  They load fine but when I am done and go to print a test page, I get an error.  I also tried printing right from AutoCAD and it has an error stating a problem with the driver.

 

Can you point me to the driver for the 800?
