    Ah, a good ol' manual install! Great guide and very good visuals, Atom Ant. Thanks!

    I'd say this guide is pretty useful regardless of whether you use windows 8 or not. I never had to use that method for a local printer, but I had to go through similar steps for a network printer in my office. I ended up doing the configuration for half the people in my office too.

    Also, when it comes to HP computers, I'd do it like this any time of the day. Every HP printer I ever got had so much bloatware in the installer package that it wasn't even funny anymore.

    Thank you for your instructions. However, I am trying to connect my Windows 8 laptop to my HP LaserJet 1012 that is connected directly to a desktop running Windows Vista, where the printer is enabled to be shared. I am unable to print to the LaserJet 1012 even though I can connect to it via the home network. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi there, randcal44, and welcome to the forums. Would you mind elaborating? What happens (if anything) when you attempt to print?

    Hi, I have spent hours in frustration now trying to make my hp laserjet 1010 work on my Windows 8. I did all the steps in this guide, but when I get to point 10. trying to install the driver, I get the error that the printer can not be installed RPC failed. In my language (norwegian)

    "kan ikke installere skriver

    Det eksterne prosedyreskallet (RPC) Mislyktes" Wich roughtly translates to "Can not install printer, the exsternal procedure shell (RPC) failed.

    I am Running Windows 8 32-bit my printer is connected via usb to my computer.

    Please Help:/

    Thanks for this Atom Ant, but it is not working for me. I am trying to install a HP LJ1010 on my new Windows 8 laptop and am ok until I get to Step 7 when hpc1010w doesn't show up in the window. This is despite browsing to the folder where I have the decompressed hpc1010 files. I have hpc1010e, hpc1010h.gpd, hpc10120h, hpc1010w and hpc1015w files in the folder. Properties for the hpc1010w file show it is an ini file whereas the window is looking for an inf file. I have tried changing the name of the hpc1010w.ini file to hpc1010w.inf but that doesn't work. Any ideas please?
