Windows 7

  • Download the correct drivers. For most HP printers, the drivers below will work.
    • Windows Vista/7/8/10 32 Bit - Upd-ps-x32-6.1.0.20062.exe
    • Windows Vista/7/8/10 64 Bit - Upd-ps-x64-6.1.0.20062.exe
    • If your printer will not work with the HP Universal Printer Driver or you are connecting to a non- HP printer, you will need to go to the Printer Manufacture's website to download the correct drivers. For HP, you can go to Drivers In the search box type in the model of your printer and click the search button. Select your operating system from the list. Now download the driver for your printer (We recommend downloading the PostsScript Driver).
    • Once you've downloaded the drivers you will need to double click on the file. It should extract the file into C:\HP Universal Print Driver PostScript v5.1.0.1 or something similar for HP printers.
