Printer driver updates for Window 7

HP Recommended

I am running the full retail version of Windows 7. Does anyone know when HP is going to update their printer drivers for it? I have had to use generics and that leaves me short on functions. I have tried asking support and have gotten several different answers.

P.S. Microsoft has a winner with 7. Soooo much better than Vista.

If you are using generic drivers why don`t you download the correct software from hp,i.e.put your model number in and download the vista software ,save it to your desktop.Click on it and under properties run it in vista sp2 compatibility mode,mine works perfect,all the software,printer,in fact everything.

The only difference is I am running 32 bit but I doubt that would make a difference. The printer I am trying to use is an officejet J6450 all in one. I don't know if that makes a difference either. I wouldn't think so.
