Manual driver installation - HP-GL/2 Raster driver
If you cannot or prefer not to use the standard installation process, you can install the driver from the CD-ROM by following these procedures:
  1. If the output you send to the printer will go directly to the printer by network without being stored on another computer, you must create a network port before installing the driver (consult your network documentation or network administrator for more information).
  2. Click Start, Settings, then click Printers to open the Printers dialog box.
  3. Double-click the Add Printer icon to open the Add Printer Wizard dialog box. We recommend that you do not use the New Driver button in the Printer Properties dialog box to install or upgrade this driver.
  4. Follow the steps displayed on your screen.
Below are some questions that you may be requested to answer depending on your system configuration. Complete the steps that follow the questions to proceed.
How is this printer attached to your computer?
  1. Select Local Printer if the output you send to the printer will go directly to the printer by cable or network without being stored on another computer.
    Select Network Printer if you will send output to the printer via another computer. In this case, all settings for the printer will be managed by a printer server that has been set up by an administrator.
  2. Click Have Disk.
  3. In the Install From Disk dialog box, enter the location of the HP-GL/2 Raster driver on the CD-ROM, and click OK. The HP-GL/2 Raster driver is in the folder called "HPGL2Ras." Choose the correct path for your language and operating system.
  4. Select your HP Designjet printer from the list, and click Next.
Would you like to keep the existing driver or use the new one?
Select Replace Existing Driver. If you are installing files for a new version, and you see this question, we recommend replacing the existing driver.
Do you print from MS-DOS-based programs?
We recommend that you select No. Select Yes only if you have an MS-DOS driver that can print to an HP Designjet series printer.
