HP Laserjet P1505 not printing under Windows 8 CP

HP Recommended

I Installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview on my system and also installed my HP Laserjet P1505 using the latest driver software from HP support. The printer installs correctly and also shows correctly in the Device Manager. However, when i try to print - test page or from any application - Win 8 reports: "The printer couldn't print...".

 

Interestingly, the printer was working under Windows 8 Developer Preview.

 

Any idea how to make the HP Laserjet P1505 work under Windows 8 Consumer Preview? 

 

Thanks.

Any update HP?

 

The Laserjet P1505 is still, to this day, not working with Windows 8.

 

My toner is sitting unused.

 

Anyone find a fix?

 

The lack of response from HP on these forums is downright disappointing.

The Laserjet P1505 is still not working on Windows 8.

 

I went to HP's site hoping to find the latest drivers:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3435668

 

This is what I'm seeing:

 

"HP is committed to providing the best product experience for the Windows 8 operating system. Today, a solution for your printer is not available for Windows 8. However, a driver update will be available in late 2012. HP aspires to provide the most up-to-date information on HP drivers and software. Please check back for updates."

 


It's November 5th, 2012.

Windows 8 launched on October 26, 2012.

NOTHING has been addressed since I last posted my request on April 27, 2012 (above).

This is beyond frustrating.

Nice if it works for 64 systems, I am working away on a 32 bit system (Windows 😎 and all this HP stuff is a real pain as the printer does nothing at all. Wondering how a big coproration can get away with this bullying behavior.
