We have only HP's - totalling 9 of the things - things because the software support is terrible - even on the small MFP 9100's, Design Jets 500's HP 950's name it. To get support - asking for a new heaven.

It doesn't appear that HP has a driver for the Design Jet 500 series with Vista 64 at this point.

If they don't provide the driver, it's next to impossible to print to it.

Hi Katie

Looks like it - can't believe it though - such a big company, guess too big.

Try the XP 64 bit edition. I'm running the XP drivers in Vista for the DesignJet 430 and it works fine.

I read a bit about Vista Ultimate and it strike me that it was based to a certain extent on the Server 2003 X64 Bit OS which originated from the old workhorse Windows NT so there is a golden thread in the 64 bit editions then. Downloaded it and it currently printing - I guess the Windows XP one will work too then. But tx for the input. Will put it on the HP 500 site as a lot of people groan.

I can confirm I am running the HP DesignJet 500 with the Windows XP 64-bit driver. It seems to be working fine at this point.
