Printer drivers


Recommended Posts


Is there a way to download the printer drivers from Windows Update

to integrate in Win7.

I have a HP Laserjet 4050 and have to use Win Update to be able to

choose the right driver. It takes forever to do that everytime I install Windows

grab the universal drivers: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=18326&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3DswEnvOID%253D4158%257CswLang%253D%257Caction%253DlistDriver&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken#Driver- Universal Print Driver


and you can install it via command line






just add the drivers you extract to a folder make a bat file to run the commands and (i've used) winrar sfx to compress and make an exe that runs the bat file on the pc.


but the printer i use this for is a networked laserjet 4200 on a jetdirect so I had to create the ports and such.


heres my script.

cscript %WINDIR%\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\Prnport.vbs -a -r IP_192.168.6.61 -h -o raw -n 9100rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /m "HP Universal Printing PCL 6" /F "M:\Printer\upd\hpcu170c.inf"rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "Computer Lab Printer" /F "M:\Printer\upd\hpcu170c.inf" /r "IP_192.168.6.61" /m "HP Universal Printing PCL 6"regedit /s M:\Printer\disableprinternote.reg --this one disables hp print popup
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\Computer Lab Printer\PrinterDriverData]"SSNPDriverUISetting"=dword:00000000this is the code to disable the popup

kinda long and unorganized but hopefully this helps ya.

Hi again!

Found this and it worked perfect

Go here: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx

Search for your printer , download (cab file), extract and install.

I guess It works for integration too with the .inf file.

There were drivers for win 2000, XP, Win7,Windows 8,Windows 8.1 Drivers,Windows Server 2008 R2,Windows Server 2012,Windows Server 2012 R2

It was also for x86, AMD64 and IA64  :cap:
