Thank you for all the friends how participated in this post

 

I have just change my mind and downloaded the "hpdj500wx64pclen" from HP.COM instead of hpgl/2

The HP500 and HP800 have Win8.1 drivers from HP.COM?

And the answer to my last question is??? If you don't know what a pc3 file is ask, don't pretend the question is not there.

Your assumption may be true if you have another AutoCAD version on your PC that can plot to your plotter.
Can you print to your plotter from other applications? That's the real test.

It looks like an adjacent post is reporting the same issue with 2015 and another HP device.

Sorry for delay

I was waiting may be Autodesk in collibration with HP issue some hotfixs

 

I think

1  HP up loaded the drivers      in Apr 2013

2  Windows 8.1 update 1 was in Apr 2014

3  AutoCAD 2015 has been     in Apr 2014

 

and these 3 friends should look in to matter and get a remady in near futuer

It in reply of "Autodesk Community Team" which ask to "mark one as an Accepted Solution"
Thanking you
