I have a problem installing my Helwlett Packard 690C+ - Printer under Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0. The SETUP - Program of the printer seems not to be compatible, it always say me any files that should be in the windows - directory were not found. i think these files are avaiable in windows 95 but nor in NT. Do you know of any solutions ?

Thanx ;)

HP is famous for releasing drivers for '95 but not NT.

Usually, (not always) an eairler driver will work. HP claims that they are backwards compatible. (Maybe yes, maybe no - in the real world).

What I use is SuperPrint from Http://www.zeno.com

This solves the driver issue by using 3rd party.
They may not have the latest version of every HP, but seems to do better than the HP native.
