HP Photosmart 4280 Running on Server 2003 x64. Doesnt see scanner.
Posted on 2008-10-05
I have a michine running Server 2003 x64 Standard and am trying to enable the printers scanning ability. The printer is an HP PhotoSmart 4280. HP Does not have any server drivers available on their site. I've used the XP X64 drivers which work perfectly for printing ONLY. I can see the scanner however in device manager. I cannot see it in "Scanners and Cameras" in control panel.
The HP software also upon install tells me that Server 2003 is an "Unsupported Operating System". I am not using it to print, I've simply extracted the installation files and manually went and had windows search for the proper drivers for each device, scanner and printer.
Has anyone ever experienced this problem or found a way to resolve it?
