Hp Designjet 700
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hopefully someone can help.

I'm trying to install a Hp Designjet 700 on a Windows 10 32bit laptop.

I'm using a parallel to usb adapter cable.

I've down loaded the driver straight from the Hp site.

I get the following message

Windows can't install the Hp Designjet 700 (d/a1) by Hp kernel-mode print driver. To obtain a driver that is compatible with the version of windows you are running, contact the manufacture.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On this old a machine  trying to run on USB is going to be a real challenge and a parallel interface installed in your computer is likely a better solution.  From there the old NT drivers may be trickly as well. You can check Autocad's site as they often offer more current drives that might work better. 

If you find the information provided useful or solves your problems, help other users find the solution easier by giving kudos and marking my post as an accepted solution.
