Windows 7 HP drivers and Universal Print Driver questions

Do you use HP UPD for all HP Laserjet for your organization? How did it work out using iprint and UPD? I rather not use UPD since it got so many issues in the past. It looks like I don't have any choice though. For example I can't find Color laserjet 5500 driver on Hp site (except for UDP). In Imanager broker upload page, built-in drivers for windows 7 does not list hp 5500. There is a function in windows 7 that allow you show more printers drivers if you chose "windows update" option. This will show hp 5500 driver in the list. However, I can't do that step with imanager driver upload page. Therefore I can't upload this hp 5500 to the broker. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you.

I did not spent much time on the HP UPD, but again the current version
did not work for me (could upload the driver, but can not create
profiles). I don't know what HP is doing there, this driver is a ....

Therefor I just selected a driver from the Win7 repository which was as
near to the real printer as possible.

If you need the driver from windows update, you can install this driver
for a local printer (e.g. pretending that this printer is attached to
LPT1). After that you can upload this driver into iPrint.

Re: Windows 7 HP drivers and Universal Print Driver question

I've been working on the same thing the last few days. It seems like after I did the Windows update option, I could access those new drivers through the iManager upload page.
