    I have a 722C hooked to my XP machine. I have been trying to use it thru
    my network ( wired hub) from our new Vista machine. As well as trying it
    directly connected to the Vista machine, it just will not work with it.
    Always says it is missing an .INF file.
    We have updated all the drivers as best we can but to no avail. The
    Vista machine will see it thru the network, but refuses to work.
    I have tried some new printers, but they are grossley inefficient with
    their printing compared this old dino. Would love to keep it around for
    a while longer.
    If anyone has any suggestions to try, that would be greatly
    appreciated. Thank you in advance!!

    I know how you feel about the DJ722C -- one of the best printers ever
    made! I replaced mine with a PS8250, another fine one but now replaced,
    partly to get better photo printing and since I was going to VISTA.

    I haven't therefore used it under VISTA but did you install a driver
    for it on the VISTA machine? I imagine there is one out of the box in
    VISTA.

    Yes according to this HP document:

    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00808543&lc=en&cc=
    us&dlc=en&product=57565&lang=en

    What happens when you use Add Printer there? Is that when you get No
    INF file?

  3. The 722 is a host-based printer. It has a puny CPU and only understands
    a basic graphics mode, which is used for all printing. It typically
    requires full communication between the computer and printer. Making it
    work over a network was iffy at the best of times.

    I don't know if there is anything here that MIGHT be of use:
