HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 driver not available

HP Recommended
HP OfficeJet Pro 8710
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

One HP laptop will connect to the 8710 printer wirelessly but my wife's goes through the connection process and results in a Driver is Unavailable message.  The laptops are the same model. We reloaded / downloaded the drivers and HP software a number of times but to no avail. I've even tried copying files from my laptop to hers but with no success on a connection.  I've spent hours on this and have run out of ideas.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
