HP 810C Printer Setup on Win XP

I need to setup my HP 810C DeskJet Printer on my new XP machine using parallel Port cable.  When I use the original install CD-ROM I right click the install.exe file and select properties -> Legacy Install. The app installs mostly but the drivers are too old and do not install.  I managed to figure it out once on my other machine but I don't remember how I did it.  I appreciate your help.

Normally, you  can get it working with the drivers included in XP; so in the printer section, just do a add printer wizard and follow the screens.

on the HP page, there are no drivers  for XP :

control panel,

printers and faxes choose add new printer, select local it will either detect it via P&P or select LPT1 >> next

select your printer from the boxes >> next >> next >> next

If that doesnt work but it should use the have disk option when selecting the printer

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Dear Nobus,

Thank you very much for replying to my posted question.  I apologize for any confusion regarding my point reward.  In the two years or so that I have been using Experts-Exchange, I have found that the best answers are those that include specific details even though they may seem mundane and unnecessary.  In your reply you said the following,

" in the printer section, just do a add printer wizard and follow the screens."

While, had this been the only response to my query, I would have found the wizard after going to Control Panel and I would have awarded you the points.   Rvision's response was a more precise answer to the original question, however, and left no room for error.  It was a complete answer and a "better" answer for my needs.  Not only did I feel it deserved the points, but that that type of reply is better for other users who are searching for an already resolved issue.  I did want to acknowledge your reply and did so by adding points to the original value of the question.  Also, your link was a valuable contribution worthy of an assist.

Well, WizeOwl, you can do the points distributing entirily as you like, no problem with that. If you feel a comment like this  :
----------------
control panel,

printers and faxes choose add new printer, select local it will either detect it via P&P or select LPT1 >> next

select your printer from the boxes >> next >> next >> next

If that doesnt work but it should use the have disk option when selecting the printer
-------------------
carries more  than :
    "in the printer section, just do a add printer wizard and follow the screens"

that is up to you, but i do not see anything more in it....

Have a nice day !
