Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Trying to install the HP Color LaserJet 3600n to my new laptop.  Using Windows 10.  The printer is not located in my printers & devices. It is an older model printer.  I have not been able to successfully download driver software.  Any suggestions would be welcome.

The LaserJet 3600 series printers are old devices which are host-based.

 

As such, there are no Windows 10 drivers available - because (being host-based) they use a proprietary, model-specific, Page Description Language, it is presumably not thought to be cost effective to write new drivers for a relatively small number of such devices.

 

There does appear to be a workaround - use Windows Vista drivers - see https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c03515691

I've no idea whether or not this supports all the features of the device.
