Hello,
I would like to share an HP Photosmart C4780 printer in domain, has somebody installed this printer on a Windows Server 2003? Can you recommend some compatible driver, offcially Windows Server 2003 is not supported. At least 32 bit driver would be great but a solution for the x64 would be excellent. Thank you!

Try the windows XP driver.  It should work.

32bit -> http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3794615#N182

Also you could download the Vista 64bit drivers and try using them...

Good luck!

Hi,
Unfortunately does not let me to install it. I will try to extract the driver files from an XP system. Does somebody know which files belongs to this printer's driver? Thank you!

You should extract them to a folder.  I use WinRAR extracting setup.exe files.  Point to the inf file.  Don't recall which one exactly, but should be something like hp****.inf

You can also try downloading the Vista 64bit drivers.  Extract them also, and retry.

Thank you for the suggestion, I was able to extract the drivers and to install the 32 bit  drivers, the printer is working fine under the Server 2003 x32.  Unfortunately the driver package for the x64 is the same as the x32 and I can't install it on the 64bit version. I'm still searching for a solution...

Compatibility List of drivers for your printer.

Windows XP is only supported for 32bit OS.  So 64bit drivers will be very hard to find for Windows XP, especially for Windows Server 2003 64bit.

Good luck.

P.S.  If you do find them, let me know. )))
