Printer Problems

How peculiar.

Having had the RC running like a breeze since the day it was first available, I know find that I cannot install my HP printer using the just released retail version, and HP still insist they don't support Windows 7.

Perhaps I'll reinstall the RC for a couple of months!

So does the scanner etc work after all that?

Yes but that was before the new drivers were posted yesterday morning on the hp website I think

HP Drivers were causing mega problems after a round of recent updates..especially for the Deskjet F4180 series!!
I have always found all HP updates to be "padded out" with excessive and useless clutter that causes more problems than they cure!
The depth at which HP software invades the registry has to be seen to be believed .I ditched HP drivers altogether and allowed Windows7 to configure the printer..It works better than ever on my machine ...and Yes..its' the Final Release version received yesterday!
I don;t use HP's Photo Software so I don't miss it and everything else works just fine.Maybe this will not happen with respect to all HP hardware..but if anyone has worries over a Deskjet F4180 ...then from my recent experience I can say that the F4180 works o/k

Can you provide a link to the W7 drivers as when I go to the site I get the same as sunnystaines quoted at 16.38 yesterday.

I have got my 2575 printing using the 2600 series on W7 though

This page gives a choice between 32 and 64 bit drivers

However, I haven't downloaded or checked them, so can't tell if they include scanner etc

Still doesn't explain why the RC worked alright for five months but the retails version fell over on installation!
