DesignJet T520
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I just bought a new DesignJet T520 printer. As it will be used on one PC only (with Windows 10), I wanted to connect it using USB connection. But somehow I am unable to make it work.

 

When I turned on the printer, Windows itself detected and added new device but there was a status message that drivers are missing. So, I removed this device.

 

I went to HP download page. I downloaded "HP DesignJet T Series HPGL2 Installer". When I run this installer it searches for any printer and writes that there is no printer found. There are two options to proceed with installation:

- Input IP address or hostname

- Print to File

 

I don't have IP address because I want to use USB connection and I don't understand the "Print to file" option (actually I tried installing using this option but of course I couldn't print).

 

Please help 🙂 What is correct procedure to install this printer when connected with USB cable?
