Windows XP printer problem

By hstennes ·
I have an HP Officejet 1170Cse printer and have just purchased new computers with Windows XP. Under older Windows versions two sided printing was supported. Under XP MS an HP no loger support two sided printing which I use extensively in my business. HP appears to indicate they have no plans to add two sided printing support to the drivers. I tried using an older driver but XP does not allow me to load it. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your help in this matter.

Windows XP printer problem

You could try downgrading one of your machines back to win2k - or whatever WAS supported, plug the printer into that and do your printing exclusively off that machine for double sided.

You will need to ensure that it can map network drivesfrom it back to the XP machines to open the documents remotely.

...and you may want to consider using terminal services (or a freebie like VNC) to allow remote usage of that machine from your XP machines.

Not the perfect solution, I know. But if HP aren't going to upgrade their drivers, you may not hace a lot of choice.
