I started my own engnieering company with a new computer with Windows 7 (64 bit) with AutoCad 2011. Bought an HP 750C Plus plotter but cannot find the driver. I saw the note on this site for downloading the driver for the 1050C to work with Windows 7. I downloaded the 1050C driver from the HP site but I do not know how to assign the driver to the hardware that my computer detects after I plugged in the 750C.
Do I need an original driver for the 750C to make this all work? I am just a user, not an installer.
Guess what. The 750c driver for XP-64 works on 7-64. A little trickier to install, but of course since it is the actual driver for the plotter, it works perfectly. Also works better for 455ca than the 1050 driver
The key point is to set temporary User account control settings off, then install inf file, restart and again set user control settings to default value.
OK I also dont really know what this means i have the same windows 7 problem and I need to get it to work on my plotter. can you give a more detailed list of instructions please?
thanks you can reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
download and unzip the file to a directory on your machine. Go to control panel users and turn off user account control. restart your computer. Add the plotter as a printer (you may find it easiest to specify that it is connected on lpt1 and change that later) using the unzipped directory for the driver. Go back to control panel users and turn user account control back on. Reboot. go to printers and devices and adjust the settings as desired, including the port. You may need to add a port if it is connected by a dedicated printserver, but that is specific to the printserver. That's it.
