Installing HP Printer Software for a USB Connection in Windows Vista

This document is for installing full-feature HP inkjet printer software in Windows Vista for all HP inkjet printers released in 2009 or earlier.
This document explains how to install the print driver and software for your printer for a USB cable connection. You can either download the software from the HP website or use the printer CD.
Don’t worry if you don’t have the product CD! You can download the most current software available for your product from the HP Web site at no cost. The following information might help you decide which installation method to use:
For a new product:
CD installation is a quick and easy method.
If you do not have a CD, you can download the software you need.
For an older product:
CD installation might not work if you are installing the product on a computer running a newer operating system that released AFTER the HP product released.
Downloading the software provides the best results for your older product. Even though it takes more time than using the CD, downloading the latest software can help you avoid installation issues.
Downloading is the recommended method if your computer operating system released after the HP product released.
About the software:
The software on the CD is current to the date of the product release.
The software that you can download from the HP Web site is the most current software available for your product. HP often updates software and drivers AFTER the product and CD release to the market.
