Software for C4780 all in one printer

I have a HP C4780 printer installed on a computer with Windows 8.1 but do not have the software to allow it to be used with a USB connection for scanning etc.  My CD is for windows 7 and I had great difficulty installing the printer driver, in fact an online service did it for me due to errors associated with Visual c++ and problems with windows.  Can I load only the software for this printer either from the CD or online and how do I do it?  Thanks in advance.

If you already plugged the printer prior installing the software, I would recommend using the following tool, it will download the driver and remove any existing instance of the printer prior the installation:
