Driver for Officejet 710 under Windows 7 64- bit

Where can I find a driver to run my old Officejet 710 on my Windows 7 laptop?

 

It is connected via generic USB-Parallel adapter.  On plugging in, Windows sucessfully installs "USB Printer Support" but fails to find a printer driver on Windows update.  The manual install procedure (from HP) fails to offer a 710-Win7 driver and a search of the HP website also fails to show a Win7 driver for 700-series.  However, I did find elsewhere on this forum (link at the end) the procedure to patch a 700-Series driver to work properly undet 64-bit, so I assume a driver must exist..

 

Can anyone point me towards a download?

Thanks.

Hi,

I afraid that the Officejet 710 is no longer supported by any Windows higher than XP.

 

The document above refer to the Deksjet 710, which is a different printer model..

 

Only printers listed below are supported by Windows7, your printer is not listed as supported.

That's a shame - it still works fine!

I guess it is a comment on the way things are.  I hope the HP Hardware team are proud that their hardware outlasted the software support!
