    Has anyone found a driver for HP LaserJet 4 plus that will work with Windows 7(64)? It's shared on my network from XP machine but Win 7 can't use it unless there is a driver on the local machine. And the HP site stops drivers at XP. ... Granted it's an old printer ... but it still works perfectly.

    Try the Microsoft Update Catalog for ""windows 7 laserjet 4""
    There may be no 64 bit support for this.

    Thanks. I tried this site a few days ago, and it kept crashing. Accessed it today ... each of the files are full of multiple files with somewhat cryptic file names ... Don't see anything referring to 64 bit ... but I'll keep looking.

    Okay. There are two 64 files IA64 and AMD64. My machine happens to be Intel, so I'm guessing maybe IA64 is the one. Maybe not. (I have them both anyway.) But .. these appear to be CAB files with what looks like file for about 50 different printers. I've never worked with a CAB file. What do I do ... extract them all to some temp file and let the installation grab the .inf file and go from there? ... Sorry to sound stupid, but this part is new to me. Usually the drivers come as .exe file and you just click on them and they install.

    I found another answer to the LJ4Plus driver question for Windows 7. ... Instead of installing/or connecting as a network printer in Control Panel I tried install as a local printer. Eventually it came to a window to select the printer from a list. It (of course) wasn't there. But there was the option of Windows update to look for more printers. It took awhile, but eventually came up with an increased list, which included the LJ4Plus. I requested install, which again took a little while as it downloaded the drivers. It then found the printer on the network (it had already been marked as shared). And after that it worked fine. So the LJ4Plus drivers are available for Win7(64) through the local printer install.

    Thanks for your help.

    That's great you were able to get it going. Don't forget to write all your steps down or preserve a copy of the driver(s) you downloaded.
