I have been running this printer successfully on a Windows 2000 partition. Because I wanted to use newer fonts available in XP, I decided to try to install the printer software and driver on the Windows XP partition. I have succeeded only in turning the printer into a brick.
I was able to download the XP printer software from HP. My problems started when the install failed because of a Java VM problem, specifically "Unable to start the application, The java virtual machine cannot be loaded". That attempted install disabled the printer.
I found this very helpful advice about installing msjavax86.exe. Unfortunately, all of the copies of that that I have found fail with the message " This setup will only upgrade over an existing version of the Microsoft VM." I can't seem to find something to download to get that "existing version".
I have J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 4 and Java(TM) 6 Update 23.
Any advice that you can give me about getting the correct Java VM installed would be greatly appreciated.
