SOLVED USB Printer Driver for HP Laserjet 3500 for Windows 7

[ Edited ]

Actually this is not a question, it is a solution.


Download the Laserjet 3500 driver for Vista

Run the file, let it unzip to your hard drive

Go to Start\Devices and Printers\Add Printer\Add a Local Printer

Create a New Port\Standard TCPIP Port

Choose a bogus ip, something that does not ping. Uncheck the "Query the Printer"

The computer will try to detect the IP port that does not exist.

At the "Additional Port Information Required" screen, choose next.

The next page will install the printer driver, choose  "Have Disk" and browse to the folder that the Vista driver was unziped

Mine was c:\HP CLJ3500, choose the inf file that appears and the computer will install the driver.

Next,, Plug in your USB cord and Viola! The computer will load the printer and driver and create the USB port.


The computer might ask you to use the existing driver, if so, say yes,, of course.
