x86 printer driver for 64 bit Windows 7

I have Windows 7 (64bit) on my computer.  I want to install an x86 driver for my HP Photosmart C6280 printer so my XP laptop can print to this printer through my home network.  I started by clicking on Devices and Printer, clicked on the Photosmart printer icon, right clicked the icon and selected Printer Properties.  I clicked on the Sharing tab and the change setting button.  I then selected Additional Drivers.  I put a check in the box next to x86 and clicked OK.  Windows wants me to provide the driver.  I can find it on the installation disk for the printer.


How do I get this driver installed on my computer?

Re: x86 printer driver for 64 bit Windows 7

If you were able to install anything for the printer, then uninstall it. Next, download the correct software from this location:


During the install you can select drivers only or the full software package, I believe.


I was a support engineer for HP.

If the advice resolved the situation, please mark it as a solution. Thank you.
