HP Designjet 750C Plus driver for Windows 7

I just upgraded to a new Windows 7 computer, running Land Desktop 2005. Everything works fine except my HP Designjet 750C Plus plotter. Windows 7 can't find a driver for the plotter. Does anyone know of a solution for this problem? I saw a post elsewhere that suggested using an XP Pro 64-bit driver instead. Thanks!

Try the 1050c plotter. It works for our 455c except for adjusting
margins. Can't use center the plot any more. Note, the Windows test
print gets screwed up, but autocad works, so test with a small, simple
drawing to see if it works. Apparently Windows sends a raster image,
which is not compatible, but the HPGL is perfect.

Thanks!! I'll give that a try. I figure if the plots don't work well in AutoCAD, I could plot to a pdf file and try printing that.

Hi jg!

Saw your post about Win7 vs XP64.

I found the HP 1050c driver on the HP site and dowloaded the zip file. But I am clueless on how to install the driver and tell either Win7 or AutoCAD that I'm using a 1050c plotter. Can you help me with this? Sounds like it would solve our problem and easier than re-installing AutoCAD in VPC/XP Mode just for plotting.

Thanks!

PLOTTERMANAGER while inside AutoCAD, set up the available HP750c driver.
Done.

2 methods
1) see Dean's message
2) from windows devices and printers, add a printer, choose local port
and type of connection or add a tcp/ip port and fill in blanks for ip
address, choose have disk for printer driver and point it at the
directory you unzipped the driver to.

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.

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.
