HP 7580b Plotter HPGL Question

Question

The school of Engineering recently donated an old Hewlett Packard 7580b print plotter. The plotter works but windows will not recognize it. I've manually installed it selecting the HPGL/2 driver. So my question is what language does my plotter use, HPGL or HPGL/2? What's the difference and will Windows XP running VectorWorks 10.1 be able to print files if I'm using an HPGL printer.

Thanks for your help,

Matt Rohner

VW prints through the operating system and doesn't require any special drivers other than those needed for the OS.

Check HP's website to see if they have a driver available for the plotter and desired operating system.
