What printer model? You are probably using the original disks that came with an old printer which would not include the XP drivers. You may be able to download XP drivers from HP's website here. It the printer is an all-in-one you might install an alternate driver as shown here.

For some of the older printers you may find the drivers built into XP, you can use the "Add Printer" dialog.

Hi,

With that, you need to install the printer into your windows 7 computer and windows vista computer.
Even though the printer is installed into your windows xp computer wirelessly and set up as shared printer, you still need to install it on to your other computer because you need to install the driver and other printer's software to maximize the features.

Since the printer is already connected, you just need to run the appropriate installation package, the one that's compatible with your Operating System, and install it via Wireless or via Network. For the correct installation package. You can download it from the hp website and check the Support and Driver's section.

Cheers!

Trying to install HP Deskjet 712c on computer with windows xp


You shouldn't need any software to print to this printer under XP, just let XP find the best or closest match to your printer and install it. It might be a Deskjet 700 or something but it'll work as a printer. The old software was probably for Windows 98.
