Windows * rejects my Dell V313W printer

I have a new HP laptop running Windows 8 and am trying to connect my Dell V313W printer. I used this printer successfully with my Toshiba laptop.  When I insert the set up disk from Dell, Windows reads it then declares that the printer is not supported. Suggestions?

Since windows 8 is so new you have to go and download the drivers for item that where pre windows 8.

Here is an additional DELL support article for that printer with Windows 8

The dell forum specifically tells how to use old drivers in compatibility mode, but does not link to the new actual Windows 8 drivers.
