    HP Mobile Printer Driver (XP Home)

    Has anybody any experience with the HP Mobile Printer Driver PCL5? This provides access to HP printers from a laptop without the need to install individual drivers.

    I have had this installed on my notebook for some time to print to a networked LJ1200. This worked fine until I updated the print server PC to SP2 and all the latest Windows updates. Now the driver works the first time after I install it on the notebook, but refuses to print after the notebook is rebooted. There is no print message, and no indication on the print server of a file waiting. On the laptop, it shows one file printing, no error. But nothing happens.

    I can print OK with direct network connection to the printer via //<pcname>/<printername>.

    If I remove and reinstall the driver, it works again the first time, but won't work again after reboot. I have checked that I have the latest driver version from the HP site.

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried chatting with an HP support specialist. They're usually pretty good about solving this kind of problem.
