HP DeskJet 970 Series Printer Driver
version 3.2 for FOR CORPORATE USERS (Windows Terminal Server)
The HP DeskJet 970C series printer driver, version 3.2 supports the HP DeskJet 970Cse and 970Cxi printers in Windows NT 4.0. This driver is designed for Corporate Users. It should be used on computers that are directly connected to the printer from the computer's parallel port. It does not include the Toolbox or other accessories for printer control.
Please note that with this driver version:
The toolbox is disabled.
There is no installer shell.
There is no bi-directional communication so users will not see status messages.
Printer driver icon shortcuts are not installed on the desktop.
Driver messaging and Manual Duplexing are disabled when the driver is installed on Windows NT4 Terminal Server Edition.
Note: For client based installs in a Windows Terminal Server environment, consult your Windows Terminal Server admin for the preferred installation method. You must also run the Uninstaller from the printer driver CD included with your printer before you attempt to install this downloaded file. You must also reboot your computer after uninstalling the old driver. For help uninstalling the driver, locate the document "How to Remove the Printer Software in Windows 95, 98, Me, NT 4.0, and Windows 2000" located on the HP DeskJet 970 support page.
Create a new directory on your hard drive. For this example, we'll say c:\dj970.
Change directory to c:\dj970.
Download the driver to c:\dj970.
Double-click on the exe that you just downloaded. This will extract the files.
You will see a 3-letter language directory. For example, if you downloaded the English driver, you will see a directory enu under c:\dj970.
Before you install this software, the printer's power cord must be plugged in and paper must be loaded. Turn on the printer and insert the print cartridges. Make sure that the Parallel cable is NOT connected!
Click on Start -> Settings -> Printers. Double-click on Add Printer.
Click Next, Choose Printer Port (typically LPTx:), Click Next again.
Click Have Disk, then Browse.
Double-click on the drive where you downloaded the driver files (in the example c:\dj970) and locate the <3 letter language code>\drivers\Win_NT\ directory.

Choose the appropriate printer (hp deskjet 970c series), click next.
Choose Replace if a dialog asks you, click Next.

The location of the driver file will be, for example, C:\dj970\enu\drivers\Win_NT\. Your path may look different from the example, depending on where you saved the downloaded file.
