Problem installing Laserjet 4050 in Windows 7 x64, No driver in Universal Print Driver v5.0.3

I am trying to add a 4050tn printer to my home network (NOT an It professional).  The printer is shared on an XP computer.  I have two laptops (W7-64 home) that are connected wirelessly to the same switch the XP machine & printer are on.  I followed the directions in the first reply (Add local printer / add port etc).  When I "Enter a port name:"  I use this name  \\DEBS_INSPIRON\Debs_Printer.  when I do I get an error "The network name cannot be found."   I can "see" the shared printer via windows explorer.   Is there something wrong with the printer or computer name?

What worked for me for "4050N" is:

 

1. Do the Windows update to get the full list

2. Select the Laserjet "4050 Series PS"

 

This is with LPT01 as a port as it's still using the old serial printer cable.  No USB.

HP Universal Print Driver does not work on my computer, with Win10 32 bits,... my printer is an old HP LaserJet 4050 T,... what am I doing wrong ?
