I can offer the following...


Full Feature Software - Download here:

HP Photosmart C5200 All-in-One Full Feature Software and Drivers


This is one of the few drivers that says it supports both Vista 32 bit and Vista 64 bit.

Click the "View all" button to see the supported OS versions.



  • Before you install the printer software, disconnect the USB cable between the computer and the printer.
  • Start the installation - when directed to do so (near the end of the installation), connect the USB cable.
  • After the software is installed, Restart the computer and log in.
