Has anyone been able to copy an existing printer in Windows 7? I know that we were able to do this in XP (not as a direct copy/paste, but by installing the printer twice) but in Windows 7 it doesn't seem to be possible.
Googling the answer is hopeless because searching for "copy printer" or "duplicate printer" you get a bunch of posts about "printer copiers" or people complaining about duplicate printers getting created in the background (precisely what I'd like to be able to do)
It'd be good to know how to do it in general, but if it depends on the printer type, then in our case we are trying to make a copy of an HP Laserjet.
Tried installing from the CD - but the CD is too old for Windows 7
Tried installing via Add Printer and that seems to install the printer but it's marked with an error.
Tried installing via the .exe installer from the HP site and that does result in a successful printer being installed, but it won't let you install the same printer twice (stalls on the "insert USB cable now" step - simply won't enable the greyed out "Next" button).
The reason this is required is so that we can print to one to the feeder and to the tray separately.
