Hi Robert,

 

the best and only option is to use an older computer with Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

Andreas

Thank you so much for your reply again, 

What if i was to uninstall windows 10 and revert back to win 8.1 ? Would this be compatible? Its just because ive just spent £1000 on two new computers. So thinking of any solution. 

 

Thank you

Hello, just been reading another thread that you commented on,

But for Win10 the UPD driver is available.

Here: Install the HP Designjet Universal Print Driver (UPD) (Windows 10)  

 

Would this not work me, i seen you posted it about ho designjet

No, see here: HP Designjet 500 Series Printers - Product Specifications 

And the next problem is your Windows 10 in S-Mode!

 

Take a look here HP DesignJet 500 Printer series
