From 32bit to 64 bit printer. HP photosmart C7100

Trying to upgrade photosmart C7100 all in one printer from 32bit to 64bit.

Old laptop is windows XP that the printer was bought for originally.

I have a Win7 64bit laptop so I reckon the printer will need bringing up to 64bit, as it won’t print from the new laptop.

I have been unable to find an update for this printer even at the HP site.

It brings up 2 slightly different models C180 and C185 does any one know if the 64bit upgrade is the same for all C model printers.

Will it be backward compatibility and still print from the XP? HP driver site

The printer itself doesn't change, it's your Windows 7 computer that requires the 64-bit drivers to use the printer. Therefore, it will continue to work with your 32-bit XP Laptop as it does at the moment.

This page has the 64-bit software & drivers for the C7100 Series which is what you require.

mgmcc Of course not really thinking was I, I do get things mixed up at times. Good job someone can unravel me and see what I am trying to say. Thanks for your time.
