I'm trying to connect to an HP CP4005 printer, which is connected to another computer by a USB cable. Windows can't automatically install the printer, and HP doesn't have the Win 7 64 bit drivers yet

I'm trying to connect to an HP CP4005 printer, which is connected to another computer by a USB cable. Windows can't automatically install the printer, and HP doesn't have the Win 7 64 bit drivers available from their website.

I have tried installing the HP Universal drivers (PCL5, PCL6, & Post Script) but none of these drivers work.

What can I do to properly install this printer so that I can print to it?

All of the other computers that are running the 32 bit version of Windows 7 are able to connect to this same printer and print to it without any problems.

I have resolved the issue by using the Vista HP printer drivers.

Does anyone know when HP will release the Windows 7 64 bit drivers for their printers?
