    Question HP deskjet printerdriver needed for win7

    I have an HP 695c deskjet printer. Installed it with the Windows 7 installer, but the computer can't communicate with the printer. I could see only once the message that "fdprint.dll" cannot be found.
    The win setup had the similar problem in xp too.
    I tried to install a universal hp driver, windows update, but nothing seems to fix it.
    The printer itself works fine, is able to print a page when I hold down the page button..
    Anyone knows where I can get a proper driver or the dll file, or any other ideas how to fix this?

    fdprint.dll should be in the directory C:\Windows\System32 .

    Is it ?

    If it is, then try to manually re-register it.

    Been there, done that. Pls note what HP says on that link:

    "Driver - Product Installation Software
    (‏1)
    Install the Driver Using Windows Update with a USB Connection (Downloadable Driver Not Available)
    2009-10-15 , VersionN/A
    HP Single-Function Printers - Installing the Product with the USB Cable and Using the Windows Update Driver or the Driver Located in the Windows 7 Operating System

    - this is the thing that does not work

    Use Microsoft or HP websites - they have the following drivers there.

    Click on Start->RUN and paste the following:

    c:\windows\system32\regsvr32.exe C:\Windows\System32\fdprint.dll

    EDIT: That should be a ONE Line command with a space after the regsvr32.exe

    (on my screen it is showing to be two lines)

    In Win 7 you may need to use an elevated command prompt -> http://www.sevenforums.com/performan...nd-prompt.html

    edit: which I think is what Steve's suggested command line achieves
