Use the Windows XP driver instead (ver 4.65).
File name is pl465en.exe it is a self extracting file.

When doing the Vista driver install, indicate that you have your own driver and guide Vista to the where you did the extraction.
It will find the INF file there.

So far this works fine for me.

However I am using Vista Home Premium thru an Ethernet router connected to an HP JetDirect 300X connected to the Centronics port of the 450C.

Also, since my 450C only has 8M total memory, I had to tell Vista to do the rasterizing. In Control Panel-->Printers select the 450C and right click "Printing Preferences". In the "Advanced" tab select "Process document....in the computer".

    Sorry. But after checking the information at this link, HP states that the DesignJet 450c is no longer supported, & hence they have not released Windows Vista drivers for it.

I can't print from any program in Vista 64 to my HP 755cm plotter. HP said they no long support this plotter so I can't find a driver. Any suggestions to make this work?


If HP don't support it for Vista you will not be able to get a driver unless you are willing to pay a programmer several thousands of pounds to go into the Vista OS and findout what information it needs so that he can write the drivers. He would also need developer ststus from Microsoft for the source codes etc. Either bin Vista (it's being replaced later this year) or buy anther plotter.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. (HP ****!!)

**you need a good driver:
whilst ordinary printer drivers may treat plotters like very large, slow, desktop printers, our driver uses the native vector graphics capabilities of your large format plotter to render CAD and line drawings at maximum speed.

Go here

Third Party Product;
and they are those recommended from HP, Autodesk and work great with Corel Draw, Power Point, Micrografx Designer, EXCELL, Lotus, Word and all vectorial-oriented Windows applications, under W95, W98, WME, NT 4.0, W2000, WinXP, Win VISTA.

I have a Roland Camm-1 CX-24 cutting machine that has a parallel connection. I have recently bought a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a Windows Vista OS. I have a USB to Parallel cable to connect the two. I have...


connect the printer and the comp. and boot up....windows should recognize the new device.
did you add the plotter to "add printers" and its driver and to the correct port?
make sure your plotter is on and loaded and function key pressed.
also some cable manufacturers supply a driver...so download one if need be.
what software are you using? is the software cutter driver set to the correct printer and port?
(by default it never is)!!
