Install "HP LaserJet 1300" printer on Windows 7 and Windows 8

I have a HP Laser jet 1300 black printer. It was installed over Windows XP, but when i tried to install it over windows 7 it was unsuccessful even I downloaded drivers of HP Laser Jet 1300 for windows 7 from HP official website. Then I tried some other manual ways and was successful.

Here are those steps to install HP LaserJet 1300 printer on windows 7.

1.  Download “upd-pcl5-x32-6.1.0.20062.exe” (download here)



 2.  Plug USB cable of printer to PC.
 3.  Install “upd-pcl5-x32-6.1.0.20062.exe” (this installs two ports for printer but cannot install drivers for printer.) after installation click "Close/OK."

 4.  Go to :   Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers.

 5.  Add printer and locate port for your HP printer, click next.



     6. Select printer “HP Universal Printing PCL (v6.1.0) in printers section. See image shown below.
 7. Next. You can change your printer name.
 8. NextFinish.
That’s all installing your HP Laser Jet 1300 Printer over the Windows 7…
