Trying to install Zebra LP 2844 Label Printer

HP Recommended
HP All-in-One 24-f0157c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Purchased a new HP all-in-one desktop computer and am trying to install my Zebra LP 2844 Label Printer. The new computer is HP All-in-One 24-f0157c running Windows 10.  I've installed the LP2844 successfully on multiple other computers and am getting nowhere with this one. I have tried connecting the LP2844 with both a USB printer cable and a USB serial cable. One issue is that I can't find what ports correspond to the USBs on the back of the all-in-one. I have tried the Zebra Setup Utilities for the drivers, which has always worked before. I can't let Windows install the correct drivers as it does not recognize that the printer is there.

 

Has anybody out there successfully installed an LP2844 to their HP all-in-one?

@klrinfo,

That unit has USB ports on the back.  The keyboard and mouse are USB.

Depending on model, you unit  has (2) USB2.0 and (2) USB 3.1

Yes, I was aware that the HP all-in-one has those USBs. I have tried both printer and serial USB cables to connect the printer to the pc and I have tried different USBs on the pc to no avail. One of the problems I am running into is that the zebra setup utilities software requires me to state what port I'm connecting to on the pc, e.g., com1, com2, lpt1, etc. I can find no information anywhere (I downloaded and checked the user manual on the hp site) that tells me what port numbers those USBs are.

@klrinfo,

Hope you will now have an understanding of those ports:

LPT      Parallel ports

Com     Serial ports

USB001  Virtual Port for Printer

USB002  Virtual port for Fax

I plug my printer into any USB port, and it is USB001
