Hello everyone. I am having issues adding some older printers to our print servers. I need, for example, a driver for Windows 7 64-bit for an HP CLJ 5M printer. This driver is available for download from Windows Update, but my place of employment does not allow our machines to connect to it. I have had limited success with the Universal PS drivers, but those can be a bit flaky.

I am wondering, if anyone knows of a place to just download the drivers that would get installed through Windows Update. I have searched Microsoft's site and have not found a link to just get the driver packed that is pushed out.

Any help with downloading those, or if anyone knows of a driver for Windows 7 64-bit that works for the Laserjet 5M printer, would be greatly appreciated.
