I can't find a printer driver for an HP 712c series printer that works with Windows XP. I got one last year, but have searched endlessly online and the only ones available are for earlier versions of Windows.

According to Microsoft, a driver for the 712c is already provided in Windows XP.

I am asked to install something from Windows XP when I try to connect to the printer, but I don't have that disk.

What is it asking for? Probably a system file that might already be there.....

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

Using the add hardware wizard in control panel, offer to select a printer from a list. 712c will appear in the HP listing.

Right, but it might be prompting for an XP system file to support it, not necessarily a driver, which is what I am hoping will be answered soon for us....
