Will software and drivers for 8710 work for an 8610 printer?

HP Recommended
HP OFFICEJET 8610
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

My work lap top will not connect to software downloaded. I think its because they have sent Win 8 software.Lap top is win 10, printer is HP 8610. Will the 8610 run off 8710 software, as this my only option to order? Thanks

Answer: 

Likely the 8710 software will not work - different printer.

The software will likely "install" - just not to the point where it connects to the "not an 8710" printer.

The printer software for  HP Officejet Pro 8610 e-All-in-One Printer series  is not a "Windows 8" only package.

 

The Full Driver software for the 8610, last released in 2019, is rated through Windows 10.

 

==============================================================================

If you cannot download the installation package it is not the package that is the issue.  Your employer might restrict downloads / connections in their work environment.  Talk to your IT department.

 

If you cannot install the software on a work computer (or while using your computer in a work environment), it might be because your employer restricts downloads / connections / installations while at work.  Talk to your IT department.
