Want JUST the print drivers!

Want to add a printer queue to a Windows server for an HP Photosmart 8700.  Looking for JUST the print drivers...not that 70+MB extracted .exe file that uses a Setup screen.   Print drivers typically just need files like .inf, .dll, .cat, .cab    and should be less than 20MB.


I can't just copy specific files from the extracted .exe file....when I try that and add a printer, it wants file "hpzpm313.dll" and it is not there.

Re: Want JUST the print drivers!

I copied the whole folder to the server and it worked when pointing to the enu.... folder.  But this still kind of sucks that HP can't just put out printer drivers for a lot of these specialty printers and mfp's.
