HP PCL 6 printer driver for Windows
Introduction
You can change the print job settings through the product control panel, the software program, or the
print driver.
Generally, for features that are duplicated in more than one location (for instance, you can select the
paper input tray from any of them), settings that are established in the software program take
precedence over printer-driver settings. Printer-driver settings, in turn, override product control-panel
settings.
Access print drivers
Depending on the operating system on which you are installing the print drivers, you can gain access
to the print drivers and different print-driver interfaces in several ways.
To gain access to the print driver settings from within most software programs, follow these steps:
1.
Click the File menu.
2.
Click the Print item.
3.
Click the Properties button.
The appearance and names of the driver tabs can vary, depending on the operating system. These
driver settings apply only while that software program is open.
You can control the drivers directly from the Printers folder. Here you have access to two sets of
driver tabs: the Printing Preferences tabs and the Properties tabs. The settings that you make on
14
Chapter 2 Windows software description and installation

the Printing Preferences driver tabs control the driver default settings for each user profile.
Installable options can be configured in Properties driver tabs.
Printing Preferences driver tabs
The Printing Preferences driver tabs change the default settings that are used across all software
programs. To gain access to these tabs, follow these steps:
1.
In Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 7, click the Start button,
click the Devices and Printers.
In Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2, click the Start button, click the Settings item, and then
click the Printers and Faxes item.
2.
Right-click the product icon.

About
Help system
The HP PCL 6 printer driver includes a full-featured Help system to provide assistance with printing
and configuration options.
“What's this?” Help
Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2, Windows Vista, and
Windows 7 support What's this? Help. You can gain access to What's this? Help messages in any of
the following ways:
●
Right-click a feature or control. A pop-up Help window appears.
●
Click the ? button in the upper-right corner of the frame, next to the X, to change the cursor to an
arrow with a question mark. When you use this special cursor to select a control, the pop-up
Help window for that feature appears.
●
Click a feature or control, and then press the F1 key. The Help window for the currently selected
control appears.
Incompatible print settings messages
Incompatible print settings (constraint) messages are unsolicited messages that appear in response
to specific print-driver selections. These messages alert you to selections that are illogical or
impossible given the product capabilities or the current settings of other controls.
NOTE: Constraint messages are limited, and the underlying software architecture might accept
some settings that are illogical or impossible for the product to perform. Sending a job with
incompatible settings can lead to unexpected results. If print jobs do not print as expected, check the
product documentation for the product capabilities.
In supported Windows operating environments, some technically invalid print-driver configurations
result in warning messages. For example, duplexing is not possible when printing an envelope. The
following figure shows an incompatible print settings warning.
16
Chapter 2 Windows software description and installation
ENWW
Figure 2-1 Incompatible print settings warning
If you click the OK button, the Incompatible Print Settings dialog appears.
Figure 2-2 Incompatible Print Settings dialog
To resolve the conflicting settings, click the Resolve all conflicts for me automatically. option, and
then click the OK button. The driver resets the conflicting control back to its previous state.
If you want to keep the conflicting setting, click the I will resolve the conflict myself. option, and
then click the OK button.
ENWW
HP LaserJet software components for Windows
17
NOTE: In this example, the conflict can be resolved manually. If the conflict is not resolved when
the driver is closed, then the same dialog appears again when a print job is sent to the product.
Advanced tab features
NOTE: The Advanced tab is located on the Printing Preferences tab set. For information about
how to access these tabs, see Printing Preferences driver tabs on page 15
Use the Advanced tab to change the layout of printed pages. Use this tab to configure special
controls that are not commonly used, as well as to control features such as collating and font
management in the driver (although most current software programs support these features in the
print dialog box or through the page settings in the software program). The following figure shows the
Advanced tab.
Figure 2-3 Advanced tab
The Advanced tab contains the following controls:

●
Graphic
●
Document Options
Chapter 2 Windows software description and installation
ENWW
Graphic
The Graphic setting contains the following controls:
●
Image Color Management settings
●
True Type Font settings
Image Color Management
This control lists the available Image Color Management (ICM) options used for printing color
graphics. ICM, a set of calculations for color matching, makes it possible for programs to adjust colors
before printing so that the color of images on the screen more closely match the color of those
images when they are printed.
NOTE:
The ICM Method is typically set to ICM Disabled.
True Type Font
Use the Substitute with Device Font option (the default setting) to print documents that contain
TrueType fonts by using equivalent printer fonts. This permits faster printing; however, you might lose
special characters that the equivalent printer font does not support. Select the Download as Softfont
option to download TrueType fonts for printing instead of using printer fonts.
Document Options
The Document Options setting contains the following controls:
●
Advanced Printing Features
●
Printer Features
●
Layout Options
Advanced Printing Features
When the Advanced Printing Features setting is Enabled, metafile spooling is turned on and
Finishing tab options such as Page Order, Booklet Layout, and Pages per Sheet are available,
depending on the product.
Enhanced metafile spooling is used to greatly reduce the amount of time that elapses between a
request to print (initiated by a software program) and the return of control to the software program by
the operating system.
For normal printing, leave the Advanced Printing Features setting at the default (Enabled). If
compatibility problems occur, you can disable the feature. However, some advanced printing features
might still appear in the print driver, even though they have been disabled. If you select an advanced
printing feature in the print driver that has been disabled on the Advanced tab, the feature is
automatically re-enabled.
ENWW
HP LaserJet software components for Windows
19
Printer Features
The Printer Features setting contains the following controls:
●
Print All Text as Black
The feature is Disabled by default. When Enabled is selected, the driver prints all text as black
regardless of the original document text color. Color text is printed as black, except for white
text, which remains white. (White text is a reliable method of printing reverse typeface against a
dark background.) This setting does not affect graphic images on the page, nor does it affect any
text that is part of a graphic.
●
Send True Type as Bitmap
Send True Type as Bitmap provides an alternative for software programs that have trouble
using TrueType fonts for special graphic aspects such as shading, rotation, or slanting. The
setting is Disabled (off) by default. The TrueType fonts are converted to bitmap soft fonts before
downloading. The Enabled setting causes the driver to send TrueType fonts to the product as
outlines, which retains the standard format (outline) of the fonts.
●
Raster Compression
Use the Raster Compression feature to select the graphics-compression method:
●
◦
Automatic. The software determines the best compression method to use.
◦
Best Quality. This option forces the software to use a lossless compression method.
(Lossless means that no data is lost during compression.)
◦
Maximum Compression. Where applicable, this option requires the software to always
use a lossy compression method (some data is lost).
Print Data Optimization
When selected, this feature allows the print job to use the host memory to ensure quick and
high-quality printing. The print speed increases without any print quality degradation.
When this option is selected, you must use one of the following settings:
●
◦
Auto (the default setting)
◦
Optimize for Raster
◦
Optimize for Text and Vector
Alternative Letterhead Mode
Alternative Letterhead Mode feature affects the way you load letterhead or preprinted paper.
This setting is turned off by default.
When selected, this option eliminates the need to flip or reload letterhead or preprinted paper in
a tray, whether you are printing on one or both sides of the sheet. Load the paper the same as
for printing on both sides. If the printer tray has an icon that indicates whether to load paper
either face-up or facedown, load the paper in opposite orientation of that shown.
20
Chapter 2 Windows software description and installation
ENWW
When this option is selected, you must select one of the following options in the Paper type
setting on the Paper/Quality tab:
◦
Letterhead
◦
Preprinted
Layout Options
The Layout Options setting contains the Page Order setting.
Page Order specifies the order in which the pages of your document are printed. Front to Back
prints the document so that page 1 prints first. Back to Front prints the document so that page 1
prints last.
NOTE: The page-ordering operation works on whole sheets of paper rather than on individual
logical pages. Accordingly, if you set Pages per Sheet (on the Finishing tab) to be greater than one,
the ordering of logical pages on a physical sheet of paper does not change.

Paper sizes
The Paper sizes setting is a drop-down menu that lists all of the supported paper sizes.
When you move the mouse over the dimensions label, the mouse cursor changes from an arrow to a
gloved hand. Click the dimensions label to toggle between English and metric units.
Because paper-size settings in most software programs override driver settings, it is generally best to
use the driver to set paper size only when you are printing from software programs that do not include
a paper-size setting, such as NotePad, or when you are producing a book or a booklet that does not
require different paper sizes.
NOTE: Certain software programs can override the size command and specify different paper sizes
within a single document.
When you change the print-driver setting to a paper size that is not currently loaded in the product, a
control-panel message appears that prompts you to load the paper size or select another tray.
When the Settings under the Special Pages section have been changed, the Paper sizes, Paper
source, and Paper type menus change also, offering a variety of options.
Custom Paper Size
The Custom Paper Size dialog box appears when you click the Custom… button on the Paper/
Quality tab. The following figure shows the initial appearance of the Custom Paper Size dialog box.
NOTE: The HP LaserJet Pro 300 color M351 and HP LaserJet Pro 400 color MFP M451 support
custom paper sizes up to 14 inches in length. To use this paper size, set the custom paper size to
match the custom paper size that you are using, up to 14 inches in length.
Name
Use the Name text box to type a new name for a custom paper size. When you change the name to
something other than Custom, the Save and OK buttons become active.
30
Chapter 2 Windows software description and installation
ENWW
The name that appears in the Name text box depends on the following conditions:
●
If a saved custom paper size has been selected from the drop-down menu on the Paper/Quality
tab, then the Name text box shows the name of the selected custom paper size.
●
If a standard paper size has been selected on the Paper/Quality tab, then the Name text box
shows the default name of Custom .
●
If a new name has been typed into the Name text box for the purpose of saving a new size or
renaming an existing size, then that new name will remain in the text box until the new size is
saved or the dialog box is closed.
If you type a new name into the Name text box, but then do not click Save, you can change the width
and height values without losing the name. However, if you close the dialog box without clicking
Save, any unsaved name or size values are lost without warning.
Paper size
The width and height values can be changed by typing numeric strings into the edit boxes in the
Paper Size group box.
Any entry that is greater than the maximum limits of the width and height control is rounded down to
the maximum valid entry, while any entry that is smaller than the minimum limits of the width and
height control is rounded up to the minimum valid entry.
If units are in millimeters, the custom paper-size range minimum is the limit rounded up to the nearest
whole millimeter. The custom paper-size range maximum is the limit rounded down to the nearest
whole millimeter. Any non-numerical entry reverts to the minimum value. Width and height entries are
validated when the focus has changed.
The resolution of each control is 1 millimeter or 1/10 of an inch, depending on the current
measurement units.
Units
To change measurement units, click one of the options in the Units group box (either Inches or
Millimeters).

No mechanism exists for manually adding custom paper types through the driver. Use HP Web
Jetadmin to add custom paper types. Custom types can be added only by using bidirectional
communication, so they must already exist in the product when the bidirectional query occurs. If
bidirectional communication is enabled, then an updated list of paper types is returned. If bidirectional
communication is not enabled, then the driver looks for custom paper types that have been saved
from a previous bidirectional communication query, and uses those. Otherwise, no custom paper
types are available through the driver.

Actual size
Actual size is the default setting. It prints the document without changing the document size.
Print document on
Click the Print document on option to format the document for one paper size and then print the
document on a different paper size, with or without scaling the image to fit the new paper size.
The Print document on control is disabled by either of the following conditions:
●
The % of actual size value is not 100.
●
The Pages per sheet value (on the Finishing tab) is not 1.
When Print document on is selected, the drop-down menu shows the paper sizes on which you can
print. The list contains all of the standard paper sizes that the selected paper source supports. When
Print document on is selected, Scale to fit is automatically selected. Clear this check box if you do
not want your document reduced or enlarged to fit on the selected paper.
Scale to fit
The Scale to fit option box specifies whether each formatted document page image is scaled to fit
the target paper size. By default, Scale to fit is selected when Print document on is selected. If the
setting is turned off, then the document page images will not be scaled, and are instead centered at
full size on the target paper. If the document size is larger than the target paper size, then the
document image is clipped. If it is smaller, then it is centered within the target paper.
When the size for which the document is formatted (that is, the logical size) differs from the target
size, the preview image uses a dashed gray line to show the boundaries of the logical page in relation
to the target paper size.
% of actual size
The % of actual size option provides a slider bar and input box to use for scaling the percentage
setting. The default setting in the entry box is 100% of actual size. Actual size is defined as the paper
size that is selected within the driver or what the driver receives from the software program (if the
software program does not negotiate the paper size with the driver). The driver scales the page by
the appropriate factor and sends it to the product.
ENWW
HP LaserJet software components for Windows
37
The limits of the range are from 25% to 400%, and any values outside the range are adjusted to
those limits as soon as the focus is removed from the control (that is, when the Tab key is pressed or
another control is selected).
Any change to the scale also changes the page preview, which increases or decreases from the
upper-left corner of the preview.
The slider bar controls the scale directly. The value in the edit box changes as the slider-bar indicator
is dragged, and the document preview image is updated to the new image scale. Each click on the
arrows increases or decreases the scale by 1%. Each click on the slider bar affects the scale by 10%.
You cannot achieve an exact value by dragging the slider-bar indicator. Instead, either use the sliderbar indicator to approximate the value that you want and then use the arrows to refine the value, or
type the value into the entry box.
The following settings disable % of actual size:

Chapter 2 Windows software description and installation
ENWW
●
Draft
●
SAMPLE
The Watermarks feature can be configured using the Driver Configuration Utility.
If the [Username] watermark is selected, the driver will use the network username of the logged in
user for the watermark.
The drop-down menu shows alphabetically sorted watermarks that are currently available on the
system, plus the string "(none)," which indicates that no watermark is selected. This is the default
setting. Any watermark that is selected from this list appears in the preview image.
When the First Page Only check box is selected, the watermark is printed only on the first page of
the document. The First Page Only check box is disabled when the current watermark selection is
"(none).”
Watermarks are applied to logical pages. For example, when Pages per Sheet is set to "4" and First
Page Only is turned off, four watermarks appear on the physical page (one on each logical page).
Click Edit, and the Watermark Details dialog box appears.
Figure 2-7 Watermark Details dialog box
The dialog box shows a preview image and provides options for creating a new watermark and
controlling the message angle and font attributes.
Click OK to accept all of the changes that are made in the Watermark Details dialog box. However,
clicking Cancel does not cancel all of the changes. If you make changes to a watermark and then
select a different watermark or click New, all of the changes are saved, and only the current, unsaved
changes can be canceled.
Current watermarks
The Current Watermarks group box in the Watermark Details dialog box contains a list of available
watermarks, both predefined watermarks that are available in the driver and any new watermarks that
you have created.
ENWW

To create a new watermark, click New. The new watermark appears in the Current Watermarks list
and in the Watermark Message edit box as "Untitled" until you name it. The name that you type in
the Watermark Message field appears in the Current Watermarks group box in the Watermark
Details dialog box and in the Watermarks group box on the Effects tab.
To name the new watermark, type the selected watermark text in the Watermark Message edit box.
To delete a watermark, select the watermark in the Current Watermarks list, and then click Delete.
A warning appears asking whether you are sure you want to delete the selected item. Click Cancel if
you want to keep the watermark. Click OK to delete the selected watermark.
NOTE: You can have no more that 30 watermarks in the Current Watermarks list at one time.
When you reach the limit of 30 watermarks, the New button is disabled.
To edit an existing watermark, select the watermark in the Current Watermarks list. If you change
the Watermark Message for that watermark, you are, in effect, creating a new watermark.
Watermark Message
The Watermark Message is also the name that identifies the watermark in the Current Watermarks
list, except when more than one watermark has the same message. For example, you might want
several different watermarks with the message DRAFT, each with a different typeface or font size.
When this occurs, the string is appended with a space, a pound sign, and a number (for example,
Draft #2). When a number is added, the number two is used first, but if the resulting name is also in
the list, then the number increases until the name is unique (Draft #3, Draft #4, and so on).
Message Angle
Use the controls in the Message Angle group box to print the watermark in different orientations on
the page. All settings center the watermark string within the page; the selection of a particular setting
affects only the angle of the string placement. The following settings are available:
●
Diagonal. This is the default setting. Select this setting to place the text along a line that spans
the lower-left to upper-right corners of the page.
●
Horizontal. Select this setting to place the text along a line that spans the mid-left and mid-right
edges of the page.
●
Custom. Select this setting to place the text at the specified angle across the page. Use the
numeric spin box to select the angle.

Orientation refers to the layout of the image on the page, and does not affect the way that paper
feeds into the product. You can specify the orientation of the print job. The three available
orientations are portrait, landscape, and rotated. The default orientation is Portrait.
NOTE: Nearly all software programs establish the orientation for the printed page, so the page
orientation in the driver is useful only for the few software programs that do not set an orientation.
The Orientation group box contains the following options:
ENWW
●
Portrait. The top edge of the document is the shorter edge of the paper.
●
Landscape. The top edge of the document is the longer edge of the paper.
●
Rotate by 180 degrees. This creates a landscape or portrait orientation in which the image is
rotated 180°. This setting is useful for printing prepunched paper.

Photo (sRGB)
Select Photo (sRGB) to enhance documents in which the content is mainly bitmap images, such
as .GIF or .eps files. This setting instructs the product to use the best color matching for rendering
sRGB bitmap images. This setting affects only raster data; it has no effect on text or vector-based
graphics. Using glossy paper in combination with this setting provides the maximum enhancement.
Photo (Adobe RGB 1998)
Select Photo (AdobeRGB 1998) for documents that use the AdobeRGB color space rather than
sRGB. For example, some digital cameras capture images in Adobe RBG, and documents that are
produced with Adobe PhotoShop use the Adobe RGB color space. When printing from a professional
software program that uses Adobe RGB, it is important that you turn off the color management in the
software program and allow the product software to manage the color space.
Vivid (sRGB)
The Vivid (sRGB) feature instructs the printer to increase the color saturation in the midtones. Less
colorful objects are rendered more colorfully. This value is recommended for printing business
graphics.
None
Select None to instruct the printer to print RGB data in raw device mode. To render documents
properly when this option is selected, you must manage color in the program in which you are
working or in the operating system.
CAUTION: Use this option only if you are familiar with the procedures for managing color in the
software program or in the operating system.
Document preview image
The document preview image is a line-drawn image of a page that represents graphics and text. The
document preview image is always oriented so that the contents of the page are right-side-up. The
document preview image appears in the upper-right corner of the following Printing Preferences
driver tabs:
●

Form to Tray Assignment
A network administrator can use Form to Tray Assignment to specify the paper size in each input
tray.
The product supports more than one source of paper. You can assign a form (which defines the
paper size and margins) to each paper source. When a form is matched to a source, you can select
the form when you print. The product prints from the tray to which that form is assigned.
Network administrators can use the Form to Tray Assignment setting to specify, in the driver, the
paper size that is loaded into each available input tray. The use of forms constrains the choices that
are available in the paper-size list on the Paper/Quality tab in the Printing Preferences driver tabs.
This constraint prevents (or reduces the likelihood of) tying up the product with paper-mount
messages that occur when users request sizes or types that are not available.
The trays listed in the Form to Tray Assignment setting include standard trays and optional
accessory trays. Generally, items that are installed separately have a separate Installable Options
setting.
The input trays listed here are also listed as paper sources on the Paper/Quality tab.
Configuring the trays
1.
Select the appropriate tray in the Form to Tray Assignment list.

Driver configuration for Windows
The HP print drivers feature bidirectional communication technology which, in supported
environments, provide automatic discovery and driver configuration for product accessories at the
time of installation.
Some accessories that are automatically discovered and configured include the duplexing unit,
optional paper trays, product hard disk, and dual inline memory modules (DIMMs).
Driver autoconfiguration
Automatic discovery and driver configuration through bidirectional communication occurs in the
following circumstances:
●
When a print driver is installed by using the installer
●
When using the Update Now feature for a driver that is already installed
However, as shown in the following table, driver autoconfiguration and Update Now are not available
in Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2, Windows Vista, or
Windows 7 operating systems over a direct connection when the product is installed by using the Add
Printer Wizard.

Bidirectional communication
In environments that support bidirectional communication, the computer communicates with the
product during installation, determines the physical configuration, and then configures the driver
accordingly.
Bidirectional communication is the capability of the product to respond to data inquiries from the
computer and report information back, such as what type of print paper is available or what
accessories are connected to the product. Bidirectional communication depends on the network
operating system and on the type of connection that exists between the computer and the product. If
the connection does not have this capability (that is, if it has no bidirectional mode), it can only accept
commands from the host and cannot report information back to the host computer.
Enterprise AutoConfiguration
Enterprise AutoConfiguration (EAC) uses bidirectional communication to provide autoconfiguration
functionality for installation of the print driver over a network, whether you use the installer on the
printing-system software CD or the Add Printer Wizard to install the driver. Driver installation that
includes EAC is configured with the same settings as the physical configuration of the product.
Configuration occurs without user interaction.
If bidirectional-communication software has been installed previously, EAC is not activated, and the
pre-existing bidirectional-communication software is used to configure the print driver.
If bidirectional communication software has not been installed, EAC installs bidirectionalcommunication software that allows it to communicate with the product and automatically match the
print driver with the actual product configuration. EAC is activated during installation of the driver or
whenever the Update Now feature is used.
If the product configuration changes after installation, the driver can be automatically updated with the
new configuration in environments that support bidirectional communication by using the Update Now
feature.
The following tables show the availability of EAC for various operating systems and network
environments that support bidirectional communication.

HP Driver Configuration
HP Driver Configuration is a software architecture and set of tools that permits HP printing-system
software to be customized and distributed in managed corporate printing environments. Using
HP Driver Configuration, information technology (IT) administrators in corporate and enterprise
environments can preconfigure the printing and device defaults for HP print drivers before installing
the drivers in the network environment.
HP Driver Configuration is most beneficial when configuring print drivers for multiple workstations or
print servers for print queues that share the same configuration. Two types of features can be
configured:
●
Product settings
●
Printing-preferences settings
The driver is configured to match the product hardware so that access to all of the product
accessories through the driver is enabled correctly (for example, for duplexing units and additional
input trays). Most driver-feature settings can also be configured.
HP Driver Configuration configures the driver to match the accessories that are installed on the
product, or to match the settings that IT administrators make in the configuration (.CFG) file (for
example, optional trays, total amount of memory, job-storage settings, or mopier settings).
The configuration process consists of three basic steps:
●
Driver acquisition
●
Driver configuration
●
Driver installation and deployment
These steps can be accomplished in different ways, depending on the tool that is being used to
define the configuration.
The driver configuration process is supported through three distinct tools. All three are designed with
the same basic user-interface (UI) controls for interacting with the .CFG file, but are packaged
ENWW
HP LaserJet software components for Windows
61
differently, either to support established product installation workflows or to leave the deployment and
installation of the driver entirely up to the user. The following tools support driver preconfiguration:
●
HP Driver Configuration Utility. The HP Driver Configuration Utility is a small, standalone,
Windows-software program that the administrator can use to open the .CFG file that is
associated with a particular driver and make modifications that are applied when that driver is
installed on the target computer. It is intended for use in environments that have an established
process for deploying drivers. This is the preconfiguration tool of choice to support any Novell or
HP Print Server Appliance (PSA) and Point and Print environments. It is used in the way that
any ordinary Windows software program is used.
The HP Driver Configuration Utility is available at the following Web site:
www.hp.com/go/dcu
●
HP Web Jetadmin Driver Configuration Plugin. HP Web Jetadmin provides a queue-creation
program that can be used to create printer queues on Windows 2000, Windows XP,
Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2. The HP Web Jetadmin Driver
Configuration Plugin adds a number of screens to the existing queue-creation workflow from
which the drivers that are being installed for the queues can be customized as part of the
process. The plug-in is limited to Internet Explorer browsers. Netscape Navigator is not
supported.
HP Web Jetadmin is supported by the following:
◦
Windows XP (Professional only)
◦
Windows Server 2003 (R2 only)
◦
Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2
◦
Windows Vista (Business and Enterprise Editions)
The HP Web Jetadmin print management features are supported by the following:
●
◦
Windows XP Professional (with Service Pack 2 or higher)
◦
Windows Server 2003
HP Driver Deployment Utility. The HP Driver Deployment Utility (HP DDU) was created to
simplify the deployment of print drivers onto a client computer. It is a simple utility that packages
the print-driver files, and the code needed to deploy them, into two files: an .EXE file and a .CAB
file. These files are run on the client computer to copy the print-driver files to the Windows driver
store and, for network packages, to install the product. This utility is supported on Windows XP,
Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2, and Windows Vista operating
systems.
To gain access to the HP DDU, insert the software CD into the CD-ROM drive, and then navigate to
the Driver Deployment Utility folder.
For more information about the HP DDU, refer to HP Driver Deployment Utility on page 156.
For detailed information about gaining access to and installing these tools, see the HP Driver
Configuration Support Guide at the following Web site and click on the Manuals link.

Chapter 2 Windows software description and installation
ENWW
Continuous export
The term "continuous export" refers to the ability of the print driver to copy the latest print-driver
settings back to the working copy of the preconfiguration file. Using this feature, the exported values
can be transferred when a compatible version of the print driver is used to upgrade the print driver.
For instance, if the orientation is set to Landscape for a driver originally installed in Windows XP,
then the orientation setting automatically remains Landscape when the operating system is upgraded
to Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2. The
continuous export feature functions transparently from the user's perspective and works only between
print drivers of identical product models.
NOTE: Not all of the driver parameters can be exported; however, the exportable components are
always the same as the components that can be preconfigured.

HP LaserJet software components and utilities for Mac
The printing-system software for Mac is composed of an HP-created postscript (PS) printer definition
file (PPD) and a Printer Dialog Extension (PDE) file that work together with the Mac OS printing
system. These files are used by the Mac OS printing system to determine default printer-driver
settings and to allow the user to select between the various print options and settings. An HPsupplied Mac printer configuration utility is provided, which allows the user to access the
HP Embedded Web Server (HP EWS) for additional configuration and product status monitoring. The
following are provided on the printing-system CD:

A postscript printer description (PPD) file is a text file that contains keywords and other information to
specify printer features, options, and settings. PPD files are created by printer vendors for a specific
postscript printer or printer family. PPD files are created by printer vendors to describe the set of
printer features available for their postscript printers. On the Mac, PPD files provide all the information
necessary to describe a postscript printer’s features, including options and default settings. They also
contain the postscript code used to invoke those features.
HP LaserJet Pro 300 color M351 and HP LaserJet Pro 400 color MFP M451 PDE
A Print Dialog extension file can specify one or more PDEs to load in the Print dialog box to provide
HP printer specific features. A printing dialog extension (PDE) is a way to extend the Print dialog box
in Mac OS X with custom printer features.

Linux information
HPLIP (Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging & Printing) is an HP-developed solution for printing, scanning,
and faxing with HP inkjet and laser based printers in Linux, distributed under the MIT, BSD, and GPL
license.
HPLIP supports most HP printers and MFPs sold over the past 20 years. More specifically, HPLIP
currently supports Deskjet, Officejet, Photosmart, PSC, Business Inkjet and LaserJet products. For a
complete list of supported devices, go to http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/supported_devices/
combined.html.
HPLIP consists of several distinct but interconnected pieces of software and is available as either a
single compressed (tar) file or as a single auto-install (run) file. As installed, HPLIP’s primary
elements are device drivers, setup and installation utilities, and a device manager (aka: a toolbox)
which provides access to maintenance tools, supplies levels, and status information.
HPLIP works succesfully across a wide breadth of Linux distributions (distros). It does not work on
Windows or other non-Linux operating systems. The latest HPLIP release is tested with the following
major distros:
●
Ubuntu
●
openSUSE
●
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED)

Unix information
UNIX systems require a Model Script to set up the UNIX environment to be able to print to the
product. The HP LaserJet IIISi, or any generic HP LaserJet printer Model Script, should work. These
files are written and provided by the individual UNIX vendor. Contact a UNIX Vendor to obtain copies
of these files.
For more information on Unix support, go to http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/

HP provides the model script files for an HP LaserJet product provided it is being used over a network
with an HP Jetdirect print server and is using HP-UX or Sun Solaris. The model script files are
installed by using the HP Jetadmin utility for the respective version of UNIX.

File to E-mail utility
The File to E-mail utility collects the data specified in an .INI file and then attaches the data files to an
e-mail that can be sent to HP Customer Support to assist troubleshooting. The utility runs on the
computer, but does not interact with the product.
The tool is included on the installer CD, but is not copied to the computer during the software
installation. HP Customer Support can also send the utility by e-mail or by posting it to an HP Web
site.
The tool is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Win 7.
The File to E-mail utility runs with any MAPI-compliant e-mail applications. It does not run with Webbased e-mail services such as Yahoo, Hotmail, or AOL.
Depending on the speed of the computer, it might take a few minutes for the utility to gather the log
files and attach them to an e-mail message.
The File to E-mail utility consists of two files that are located in the util folder on the product printingsystem software CD:
●
<CD-ROM drive>Utilities\FileToEmail.exe
●
<CD-ROM drive>Utilities\FileToEmail.ini
To use the File to E-mail utility, copy these files to the desktop, navigate to them in Explorer, and
double-click FileToEmail.exe to open the utility. The utility generates files, opens an e-mail message,
and attaches the files so that you can send them to the system administrator.
If the File to E-mail utility is not successful for any reason (for instance, if you cancel the new
message or you are using Web-based e-mail software), all the files are copied to a folder on the
desktop that is named HpCCC, possibly with strings of zeros attached to the end. You can zip these
files and e-mail them separately.

CUPS is the software you use to print from applications like Web browsers. It converts the page
descriptions produced by the software application into something the product can understand and
then sends the information to the product for printing.

Capture PRN for Mac (CUPS capture)

HP Driver Deployment Utility
The HP Driver Deployment Utility (HP DDU) was created to simplify the deployment of print drivers
onto a client computer. It is a simple utility that packages the printer-driver files, and the code needed
to deploy them, into 2 files: an .EXE file and a .CAB file. These files are run on the client computer to
copy the printer-driver files to the Windows driver store, and for network packages, to install the
product.
The HP DDU works with print drivers that can be installed by an .INF file. It is designed to work with
print drivers that have their files contained in one directory structure. Because this utility is generic, it
does not detect how specific print drivers are packaged. It packages all files in the directory (and
subdirectories) where the print driver .INF file is found. The print driver must be expanded so that the
HP DDU can process the .INF file. If you download an .EXE file with the print-driver files, you need to
run it first to unpack all of the files. Then, run the HP DDU to package it for deployment on the client
system.
HP DDU can be used to pre-configure a print driver for deployment. When the package is run on the
client computer, the new configuration file is used to configure the print driver after it is installed. This
does not break WHQL certification.
If the print driver was WHQL certified, and the print-driver files are organized within one directory
structure, then HP DDU will not break WHQL certification. HP DDU packages all of the files found in
the printer-driver directory structure without modifying them. If printer-driver pre-configuration is done,
the new configuration file is used to configure the print driver after it is installed. This does not break
WHQL certification.
NOTE: If you need the ability to configure unique settings for printer-driver deployment, the
Universal Print Driver installer may be a better choice as an install tool. The Universal Print Driver
installer allows the configuration of settings from the command line.
The HP DDU can be used with the Universal Print Driver installer, but the Universal Print Driver
command line will not be accessible. The HP DDU is designed to package and stage/install print
drivers. Print-driver specific features, like those found in the Universal Print Driver installer, are
specific to the Universal Print Driver installer and not supported by the HP DDU.
The HP DDU installer could be used with the Universal Print Drivers to deploy a direct connect driver
in traditional mode or a network install in traditional mode.
NOTE: Administrative rights are necessary on the client system where the install is being
performed. For a direct connect, administrative rights are only required to run the .EXE package. The
user can then connect the product without administrative rights. For a network connection, the .EXE
package will copy files to the driver store, create the port, install the print driver and create the printer
object.

directory. This utility packages the print driver and the code needed to stage/install the print
driver into an .EXE file and a .CAB file. An informational .XML file is also created and can be
used to identify the package selections.
2.
Run the new printer-driver package (created in step 1) on the client computer. It can be copied
to the client computer and run by double clicking, or it can be run from a server by pointing to it
and double clicking. The package can also be run in a batch file.
For a direct connect package, the HP DDU will silently copy the printer-driver files into the Windows
driver store and exit. Prior to exiting, an optional dialog can be shown to prompt the user to connect
their product after the files are copied. Upon completion of the package executable, when the user
connects the product to the computer, the operating system will install the product using Plug and
Play software.
NOTE:
If the product is never connected to the computer, the product will not be installed.
For a network package, the HP DDU will silently copy the printer-driver files into the Windows driver
store, and then install the product using the network information entered by the administrator.

●
Package Source describes the package type and printer-driver location that you want to create.
●
Package Target identifies the name and location of the installation package.
●
Create Package initiates the package creation process.

Figure 5-1 Package Source
Driver Directory — Use the Select Driver button to enter the directory where the print driver resides
by browsing or typing the path. You should only have one printer-driver package in this directory
because this utility will package all the files found in this directory (and sub directories) into the
executable file. If you have downloaded a compressed printer-driver package, you must expand it
before using this utility.
In some cases, you may have multiple print-driver .INF files in the directory (sometimes one is for
color and another for monochrome products). In this case, an additional dialog will allow you to select
which printer driver to package.
You will also get a warning if the directory is large. This is to help prevent packaging more than one
print driver. You can choose to continue or not at this point.
Once the printer-driver directory is selected, and one print driver has been found, the printer-driver
information is displayed below the directory selection box.

For print drivers that support preconfiguration, the check box below will be enabled. Selecting this will
run a configuration dialog after clicking the Create Package.
Install Type — For direct connections, use the Silently preload the driver option. A future Plug and
Play event will be necessary to install the print driver, but all the files will be installed in the Windows
driver store by this package for future use.
By default the executable file runs silently. If you would like to prompt the end user to connect the
product at the end of the install, select the Show a prompt to connect the printer checkbox.
For products using a network connection, select the Silently create the network port and install
driver option. The Network Settings button will become enabled, and you should click on it to enter
the required network settings.
NOTE: If you do not select the print driver first, an error dialog box appears. You must select the
print driver first so that the product name can be derived from the printer-driver name.

HP DDU Frequently Asked Questions
How do I use the HP DDU to deploy a direct connect driver with preconfiguration?
If you load multiple PDLs for one product, the operating system will determine which one satisfies the
Plug and Play event. The operating system will create one printer object for that PDL.
1.
Run HPDDU.EXE to start the package creation.
2.
From Package Source section:
3.
a.
Select the print driver to package by browsing to the .INF file in the directory.
b.
Select the Pre-configuration checkbox. This checkbox is enabled only for print drivers that
support preconfiguration.
c.
Select the Silently preload the driver install type.
d.
Select the Show a prompt to connect the printer check box if you want to prompt the
user after the files are copied.
From Package Target section:
Select the output name and location. Three files will be written here: an .EXE file, a .CAB file,
and an .XML file with information about the package.

5.
From Create Package section:
a.
If you want to suppress any error messages, select the Suppress all end user error
messages check box.
b.
Click the Create Package button
Run the new .EXE file from the client computer. You must have administrator rights to run
the .EXE file because it will be copying files into the Windows driver store. Now the printer-driver
files are on the system, and any user can connect the product to trigger the Plug and Play event.
NOTE: The printer object is not created until the product is connected.
NOTE: If you deploy multiple direct connect print drivers, with preconfiguration, and they all use a
pre-config file with the same name, the first one connected will be the only one configured properly.
This might happen if you deploy the PCL6 and PCL5 print drivers for the same product. The reason is
that the config file is copied to the \3 directory awaiting the product being connected. Each
deployment will just copy over the same config file since they all use the same name. Once the
product is connected, this config file gets consumed and deleted. Future Plug and Play events will not
have the config file available.
How do I use the HP DDU to deploy a network product with preconfiguration?
NOTE: Before running the HP DDU, you must download the driver you want to package, expand
the driver, and place the driver in its own directory on the computer where the HP DDU will run.
1.
Run HPDDU.EXE to create the package.
2.
From Package Source section:
3.
4.
a.
Select the print driver to package by browsing to the .INF file in the directory.
b.
Select the Pre-configuration checkbox. This checkbox is enabled only for print drivers that
support preconfiguration.
c.
Select the Silently create network port and install driver install type.
d.
Click the Network Settings button to enter the network settings.
From Network Settings dialog:
a.
From the Required Settings section, enter at least one way of identifying the product (IP
address, Hardware address, or Hostname).
b.
Make any changes to the Additional Settings section (port name, product name, default
printer, sharing and share name). You can leave the default settings if you don’t need to
make changes.
From Package Target section:
Select the output name and location. Three files will be written here: an .EXE file, a .CAB file and
an .XML file with information about the package.

c.
The configuration dialog will open and allow you to set configuration details for this print
driver. After accepting the configuration changes, the package will be created.
Run the new .EXE file from the client computer. You must have administrator rights to run
the .EXE file because it will be copying files into the Windows driver store. A port and printer
object will be created with the information provided above.
Common Problems
I get a warning when I select the print driver.
If there are too many files in the driver directory, or the directory is really large, a warning appears so
that the user doesn’t accidentally package up something they didn’t intend to (like the root directory).
Some print drivers are really large, and you can choose to ignore this warning and continue.
To minimize package size, each print driver should be in it’s own directory. This is usually the default
behavior when you expand a print driver.
I get an error when I try to open the “Network Settings” dialog.
You need to first select a print driver before opening the “Network Settings” dialog. This populates the
product name field based on the printer-driver name.
The Create Package button is not enabled.
This button will not be enabled until you have:
1.
Selected the print driver.
2.
If network connect – filled out one of the required network settings.
3.
Selected the Save as name and directory.
How do I exit the HP DDU?
Use the Windows close button in the upper corner.
The Network Settings dialog keeps displaying an error, and I just want to close the program.
If you do not want to save settings, or change your mind and don’t want a network install, you need to
close the network settings dialog with the Windows close button in the upper corner. Using the OK
button causes the HP DDU to try to validate the settings, and that is what is causing an error.
What if the user connects the printer before the HP DDU package is run?
If the user connects the product, but then cancels the Plug and Play event before it finishes, this
creates an incomplete Plug and Play event. After copying the printer-driver files to the Windows driver
store, the HP DDU code will cleanup incomplete Plug and Play events for products supported by this
print driver. Then it will refresh the bus, causing the operating system to Plug and Play the product
(installing the print driver and creating the printer object.)

This chapter contains information on the following topics:
●
Using the HP Universal Print Driver for Windows in Citrix environments
●
The difference between the Citrix and HP UPDs
Using the HP Universal Print Driver for Windows in Citrix environments
The HP Universal Print Driver (UPD) for Windows is supported by HP in Citrix and Terminal Server
environments.
Traditional mode
The HP Universal Print Driver can be installed in static or traditional mode on the Citrix server and
perform as a print driver for all compatible auto-created printers or redirected printers.
For auto-created printers, the HP Universal Print PCL 5 driver can be mapped to print to all PCL 5capable HP client printers or the HP Universal Print postscript (PS) emulation driver to all postscriptcapable HP client printers through driver mapping in the Citrix management tools. To install the HP
Universal Print Driver in static or traditional mode, run install.exe from the command line on the server
and then configure the mapping from within the Citrix Server. Alternatively, you can use Add Printer
Wizard or Add Printer Driver Wizard to install and configure the UPD.
For more information and to download the UPD, go to: www.hp.com/go/upd
Dynamic mode
Installing and using UPD in dynamic mode on Citrix and Terminal Server clients, and using it as an
auto-created printer in a Citrix or Terminal Services session is a supported configuration. However,
there are a few things to be aware of.
●
When a job is printed from within the Citrix or Terminal Services session, no dynamic mode UI is
presented. The print job will automatically print to the last printer that was selected on the client.
●
If the UPD dynamic mode installation is new and no printing was ever done, UPD dynamic mode
will default to LPT1. If there is no printer connected to LPT1, the print job will fail.
If the user wants to change the physical printer that the job will go to, there are two options:
1.
168
HP UPD is installed on clients in dynamic mode, and the Citrix auto-create policy is configured
so that the Citrix UPD is the driver that is mapped to the HP UPD on the client. This is the
recommended configuration. These steps can be performed from within a Citrix session:
●
When the user selects Print from within an application, select Preferences.
●
When the Citrix UPD UI appears, select Local Driver.
Chapter 5 Engineering details
ENWW
2.
●
The UPD dynamic mode UI will be displayed. The user can then select the desired printer.
●
When the UPD print preferences UI is displayed, the user can click Cancel.
If the HP UPD is installed as a driver on the Citrix or Terminal server and mapped to the
dynamic mode UPD on the clients, the user must perform these steps prior to logging in to a
Citrix session or published application:
●
Open the Printers folder and select the dynamic mode UPD printer.
●
Right click the printer and select Printing Preferences.
●
The UPD dynamic mode UI will be displayed. The user can then select the desired printer.
●
When the UPD print preferences UI is displayed, the user can click Cancel.
Installation of the HP Universal Print Driver in dynamic mode on the Citrix server is not supported in a
multi-user environment. The Windows operating system limits a print queue to one port at a time.
Multiple users will compete for the single port bound to the HP Universal Print Driver queue if installed
in dynamic mode.
For more information and to download the UPD, go to: www.hp.com/go/upd
Running the Citrix StressPrinters test using default settings
Citrix Knowledge base article CTX109374 suggests that you use the default setting LPT1 as the
Printer port name when running the StressPrinters test. However, using LPT1 will give erroneous
results.
The HP UPD needs to make queries to the printer during the auto-creation process to obtain the
printer's configuration. If an invalid printer port like LPT1 is selected, these queries will time out and
fail. The indication is either exceptionally long auto-create times or test failure.
To get results that are accurate and reflect actual performance, use a valid auto-created port instead.
These ports can be easily identified because the name is preceded by the string “CLIENT:”.
The difference between the Citrix and HP UPDs
The Citrix UPD for Citrix Presentation Server 4.0, 4.5, XenApp 5.0 or XenApp 6.0 works well for autocreated client printers and Microsoft Windows XP, or Windows Vista® clients. The Citrix UPD cannot
be used for auto-created session printers configured by a Citrix policy that are network print shares
connected at login. Discrete print drivers must be installed on the Citrix server for any session printer.
The Citrix UPD also requires Windows 2000, XP, or Vista on the client. The Citrix UPD is not
supported with thin clients that utilize embedded operating systems because the Citrix UPD works in
conjunction with the Windows print driver installed on the client for communication of print settings
and rendering of the print jobs locally.
The HP UPD works well for mapping to any HP PCL or Postscript client print driver for auto-created
client printers. It works well for any client, including thin clients with embedded operating systems.
The Citrix UPD has the ability to provide all printer configurations and user settings from the client
printer, such as print on both sides as default, to the auto-created printer within the Citrix user
session. The HP UPD has the ability, if the client printer is a network printer, to communicate with the
printer and determine its configuration, such as tray configuration. But the HP UPD cannot determine
ENWW
Citrix
169
user settings of the client printers from the client. The auto-created printers using the HP UPD will
have default print settings, such as print single-sided as default.

Known limitation of the UPD when used for auto-created printers or redirected printers
with client printers that are directly attached
The UPD, outside of a Citrix environment, has the ability to configure itself according to the actual
configuration of the printer, such as tray configuration, by communicating directly with the printer.
Currently, version 5.1 of the UPD has the limitation that, when installed on the server and mapped for
auto-created printers, it cannot communicate with the printer installed on the client if the client's
printer is directly attached to the client machine, such as via USB. If the printer is networked,
automatic configuration is supported. For directly attached printers on the client, such as USBconnected printers, the UPD PCL driver defaults to black and white with no extra trays and no devicespecific paper handling. The UPD PS driver defaults to color, no extra trays, and no device-specific
paper handling.
NOTE: Printers that are attached to the client via network ports are not affected. The UPD, installed
on the server, can communicate with client printers that are available on the network.
Client printer settings not reflected in auto-created printers
This is a limitation of Citrix MetaFrame 3.0 and older versions. Driver settings, such as tray
configuration, duplex unit, printer memory, and quick sets are not read at auto-creation. Paper size
and orientation are the only client settings that are read during auto-creation. The remaining settings
are determined by the default settings of the driver installed on the server.
Citrix has provided this functionality in Presentation Server 4.0 and beyond by using the Citrix UPD
for client printers. The Citrix server must be at least 4.0 and the client must be a Windows client
(Windows 2000, XP, Vista) with at least ICA® version 9.0.
Driver settings can be configured manually if Feature Release 1 and Service Pack 1 or later is
installed on a MetaFrame XP Server. To configure the driver manually, go to the properties of the
auto-created printer. There, you can set the tray configuration, duplex unit, and hard disk settings.
The settings will be saved to the user's profile when the user logs out and these printer settings will
be restored the next time the user logs in.
