NOTE: The HP PCL 6 discrete print driver is installed by default.
Use the HP ePrint Software
The HP ePrint Software makes it easy to print from a desktop or laptop computer to any HP ePrintcapable product. After installing the driver, open the Print option from within your application, and
then select HP ePrint Software from the installed printers list. This single driver makes it easy to find
HP ePrint-enabled products that are registered to your ePrintCenter account. The target HP product can
be at your desk or in a remote location, such as a branch office or across the globe—you can do
remote printing by using the Internet. The target product can be anywhere in the world; if it is Webconnected and registered in ePrintCenter, you can send a print job to the product.
For Windows®, the HP ePrint Software supports traditional direct IP printing to local network printers
on the network (LAN or WAN) to supported postscript products.
Go to www.hp.com/go/eprintmobiledriver for drivers and information.
Supported operating systems

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, printer 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, Windows® Vista, or
Windows® 7 operating systems over a direct connection (USB) when the product is installed by using
the Add Printer Wizard.

The table applies to Windows® XP, Windows® Server 2003, Windows® Server 2008, Windows Vista®, and Windows®
7.
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.
ENWW
Driver configuration for Windows®
15
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. For more information, see Update Now on page 16.
Update Now
If you have modified the configuration of the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 or HP
LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP M575 product since installation, the driver can be automatically
updated with the new configuration in environments that support bidirectional communication. Use the
Update Now feature to automatically reflect the new configuration in the driver.
For example, if the product is installed and an optional paper-handling accessory is added later, use
the Update Now feature to query the product and update the settings to match the new product
configuration.
The feature automatically updates the registry and changes the configuration information that appears
on the Device Settings tab.
NOTE: Depending on which settings were updated, the Update Now feature might change the
configuration information that displays on the print-driver tabs, instead of (or in addition to) changing
the information on the Device Settings tab.
To activate the Update Now feature, follow these steps:
1.

ICC/CMS
HP provides cyan-magenta-yellow-black (CMYK) and standard red-green-blue (sRGB) International
Color Consortium (ICC) profiles with the product. The CMYK profile can only be used with a postscript
print driver; the sRGB profile can be used with any of the product print drivers. The profiles are
available at the following HP Web site under software downloads:
●
For HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575: www.hp.com/support/lj500colorMFPM575
●
For HP LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP M575: www.hp.com/support/ljcolorflowMFPM575
The ICC profiles describe the way that color will be interpreted in the default CMYK and RGB modes.
These profiles can be used for color conversions in a color-managed workflow. The sRGB profile
matches the default RGB mode (sRGB), which is enabled with the Default (sRGB) or Color setting in
either a PCL or postscript print driver. The product interprets CMYK data according to the Specifications
for Web Offset Publications (SWOP) simulation when Default CMYK+ is the selected CMYK Color
setting in the postscript print driver, and a more accurate SWOP rendering can be produced by
selecting the SWOP setting. This standard defines how a particular set of CMYK ink colors should
behave. Emulation for Dainippon Press (DIC) and Euro-standard CMYK inks used in Asia and Europe
are also available and can be selected from the print driver.
PANTONE color matching
PANTONE has multiple color matching systems. The PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM® is very popular
and uses solid inks to generate a wide range of color hues and tints. For details on how to use
PANTONE Colors with this product, see:

Printer Adminstrator Resource Kit (PARK)
The HP Printer Administrator Resource Kit (PARK) is a collection of tools, scripts and documentation to
help print administrators install, deploy, configure and manage the HP Universal Print Driver.
The following PARK tools are described in this document:
●
HP Driver Deployment Utility
●
HP Driver Configuration Utility
For more information about the PARK, its components, and how to download, go to the following Web
site and click the Resource Kit tab:
www.hp.com/go/upd
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.
HP Driver Configuration Utility
The HP Driver Configuration Utility (DCU) is a small Windows® application used to edit the
configuration file associated with a particular driver. The configuration file controls the print driver
settings and takes effect when the driver is installed.
The HP Driver Configuration Utility does not handle any part of the deployment or installation of the
driver. Instead, the default driver configuration file is modified and saved back to the same driver
directory in which it was opened (hpcpu*.cfm) or saved to the local host's directory [filename].cfm.
After modification of custom settings, the settings become the defaults used during driver installation.
Please reference the HP Universal Print Driver System Administrator's Guide and the HP Driver
Configuration Utility documentation for full details on installing and using the utility. These documents
are available at www.hp.com/go/upd.

HP PCL 5, PCL 6, and PS emulation
drivers for Windows®
Introduction
This chapter describes the driver printing preferences and printer property settings for the HP LaserJet
Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 and HP LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP M575 PCL6 discrete driver
and the HP Universal Printing PCL 6, PCL 5 and PS Drivers.
You can control print jobs from several places:
●
the product control panel
●
the software program print dialog box
●
the driver user interface
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 print-driver settings. Print-driver settings, in turn, override product control-panel
settings.
When you install the printing-system software in Windows®, the HP PCL 6 Discrete Print Driver is
installed by default through the installer. The HP PS Universal Print Driver and the HP PCL 5 Universal
Print Driver and the HP PCL 6 Universal Print Driver can be installed by downloading the software from
the Web.

Help system
The HP PCL 6 Print 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, 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 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. Duplexing, for example, is not possible when the Transparency paper type
is selected. The following figure shows an Incompatible Print Settings message.
Figure 3-1 An Incompatible Print Settings message
To resolve the conflicting settings, click Restore my previous settings., and then click OK. The
driver resets the conflicting control back to its previous state.
If you want to keep the conflicting setting, click Keep this setting, and I will change it later.,
and then click OK.
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.
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 copies 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 3-2 The default appearance of the Advanced tab
The Advanced tab contains the following controls:
●
Paper/Output
●

Document Options
Paper/Output
The Paper/Output setting contains the Copy Count setting.
70
Chapter 3 HP PCL 5, PCL 6, and PS emulation drivers for Windows®
ENWW
Copy Count
Copy Count specifies the number of copies to print. This driver setting is useful for software programs
that do not provide a copy count. If a copy count is available in the software program, set the copy
count in the software program.
The number of copies that you request appears in the Copy Count option. You can select the number
by typing in the text box or by using the up and down arrows to the right of the text box. Valid entries
are numbers from 1 to 9999. The copies value will not advance from the maximum number (9999) to 1
when the up arrow is used, or change from 1 to the maximum number (9999) when the down arrow is
used. When you click another group box or leave the Advanced tab, invalid entries into the text box
(such as non-numerical input, numbers less than 1, or numbers greater than the maximum allowed) are
changed to the last valid value that appeared in the text box. The default number of copies is 1.
Because you can set the number of copies that you want from some software programs, conflicts
between the software program you are using and the driver can arise. In most cases, the software
program and the driver communicate, so that the number of copies set in one location (such as the
program) will appear in the other (such as the driver). For some programs, this communication does not
take place, and the copies values are treated independently. For these programs, setting 10 copies in
the program and then setting 10 copies in the driver will result in 100 copies (10 x 10) being printed.
It is recommended that you set the number of copies in the program, whenever possible.
When the Copy Count option is set to more than 1, the Collated check box becomes available.
Select this check box when you want the product to collate (collect and combine in proper order) the
printed copies. Most current software programs support the collating feature in the print dialog box or
through the page settings in the software program.
Graphic
The Graphic setting contains the following controls:
●
Image Color Management settings
●
ICM Intent
●
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 control is typically set to ICM Disabled.
ICM Intent
This control specifies how color images are created to produce the best looking image on the printed
page.
ENWW
Advanced tab features
71
The following options are available:
●
Graphics: The best setting to use if you are printing a chart or using fully saturated, bright colors.
●
Pictures: The default setting. Use this setting to maximize the contrast for photographs or pictures
where the colors blend together.
●
Proof: The setting to use if your document uses a color that you need to match exactly, and you
are sending the document to a printer that has that specific color of ink.
●
Match: Allows you to preview the color settings from another printer.
True Type Font
Use Substitute with Device Font (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 Download as Softfont to
download TrueType fonts for printing instead of using printer fonts.
Document Options
The Document Options setting contains the following controls:
●
Advanced Printing Features
●
Print Optimizations
●
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 your product.
Enhanced metafile spooling is used to greatly reduce the amount of time that elapses between a request
to print (initiated by an application) and the return of control to the application 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.
Print Optimizations
The default setting for Print Optimizations is Enabled. When this feature is enabled and your
document contains overlapping text and graphics, the text that is placed on top of a graphic might not
print correctly. If the printed output is not correct, you can disable this feature. When this feature is
disabled, print optimization-features, such as substituting device fonts for TrueType fonts and scanning
for horizontal and vertical rules, are turned off.

Chapter 3 HP PCL 5, PCL 6, and PS emulation drivers for Windows®
ENWW
Printer Features
The Printer Features setting contains the following controls:
●
Print All Text as Black
Print All Text as Black 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.
●
Alternative Letterhead Mode
When selected, Alternative Letterhead Mode 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 as you would for printing on both sides. If the product tray has an icon that indicates
whether to load paper either face-up or face-down, load the paper in opposite orientation of that
shown.
When this option is selected, you must use one of the following options in the Paper type
setting:
◦
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
(default setting) 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.

pages of the document. The following figure shows the Paper Options group box and the selections
that are available by default.

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.
For information about paper sizes, see Media attributes and commands on page 168 .
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. For more information, see
Special pages on page 82.
Custom Paper Size
The Custom Paper Size dialog box appears when you click Custom… on the Paper/Quality
tab. The following figure shows the initial appearance of the Custom Paper Size dialog box.
Figure 3-7 Custom Paper Size dialog box
NOTE: Both the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 and the HP LaserJet Enterprise color
flow MFP M575 products support custom paper sizes up to 14 inches in length and 8.5 inches in
width.
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.
The name that appears in the Name text box depends on the following conditions:
ENWW
●
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.
Supported paper sizes
This product supports a number of paper sizes, and it adapts to various media.
See the User Guide for a complete list of paper sizes.
NOTE: To obtain best results, select the correct paper size and type in the print driver before printing.
Paper source
The Paper source setting specifies the source tray to use for printing a document. The list of source
trays depends on the product accessories that are installed. Any optional source trays that are installed
through the Device Settings tab also appear here.
The Paper source drop-down menu can contain the following options, depending on what has been
installed on the product:
●
Automatically Select
●
Printer auto select
●
Manual Feed in Tray 1
●
Tray 1 (100-sheet multipurpose tray)
●
Tray 2 (250-sheet tray)
●
Tray 3 (500-sheet tray)
The default setting is Automatically Select. When this setting is selected, the HP LaserJet Enterprise
500 color MFP M575 or HP LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP M575 uses the source tray that supports
the paper size that you have selected. If you select a source tray other than Automatically Select,
make sure that the correct paper size is loaded in the source tray.

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, 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.
NOTE: To download a current version of HP Web Jetamin and for the latest list of supported host
systems, go to the following Web site:

If you select a setting other than the default, make sure that the correct paper type is loaded in the tray
that you selected in the Paper source setting..
When you change the print-driver setting to a paper type that is not currently loaded in the product, a
control-panel message appears that prompts you to load the paper type or select another tray.
NOTE: To only use a specific tray for special paper such as letterhead, set the tray up as letterhead
at the printer control panel. Select letterhead in the driver when you want to print to that tray.
To prevent accidently printing from a tray specified for special paper, specify plain paper at the printer
control panel and driver for other print jobs. Otherwise, paper may be pulled from the wrong tray.

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 and
any custom sizes that you have created. 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. The following figure shows

preview images for a document formatted for Legal-size paper with the Print Document On check
box selected, and the target size specified as Letter.
Figure 3-13 Preview images – Legal on Letter; Scale to Fit off (left) and on (right)
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.
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 upperleft 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:

existing watermark. The following watermarks are preset in the driver:
●
(none)
●
[Username]
●

SAMPLE
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 unchecked, four watermarks appear on the physical page (one on each logical
page).

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 from the mid-left to the
mid-right edge 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.

Print on both sides automatically
The duplexing unit in the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 or HP LaserJet Enterprise color
flow MFP M575 product prints on two sides of a sheet of paper when the Print on Both Sides
option is specified in the print job.
This product supports smart duplexing. The smart duplexing feature increases printing performance by
preventing one-page print jobs or single-sided pages of a duplexed print job from going through the
duplexing unit even when the duplexing feature has been selected in the driver.
All paper types support the smart duplexing feature, except for paper types that cannot be printed on
both sides (such as labels, transparencies, and envelopes) and the following paper types:
●
Prepunched
●
Preprinted
●
Letterhead
●
Cardstock
When the paper type is set to Unspecified, the smart duplexing feature is disabled.
To achieve the best print quality when printing on the second side of the page, the product needs to
make adjustments to its print modes. When you select a paper type, you are, in effect, instructing the
product to use a group of settings (such as fuser temperature and print speed) to print the paper with
the best possible quality. This group of settings is known as print mode. A different print mode is used
with each paper type. Print-mode adjustments for the second side of a duplexed page are automatic.
Flip Pages Up
Use the Flip Pages Up check box to specify the duplex-binding option. By default, the Flip Pages
Up check box is not available. It is available only when Print on Both Sides is selected. The
following table demonstrates the results of selecting this check box, depending on the paper orientation
selected on the Finishing tab.

Book and Booklet Printing
The HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 or HP LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP M575
supports book and booklet printing.
A book is a print job consisting of at least two pages. It can have a different paper type for the front
cover, first page, other pages, last page, or back cover. Use the Covers and Print pages on
different paper settings on the Paper/Quality tab to select different paper for the front cover, first
page, other pages, and back cover.
A booklet is a print job that places two pages on each side of a sheet that can then be folded into a
booklet that is half the size of the paper. Use the Booklet Layout drop-down menu on the Finishing

Orientation
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:
●
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.
You can toggle orientation between portrait and landscape by clicking the document preview image. If
you select the Rotate by 180 degrees check box, the document preview image icon does not
visually change on the driver screen to reflect this setting.

Use the job-storage feature to store print jobs in the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 or HP
LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP M575 product memory or hard disk for printing at a later time.
The Job Storage tab appears among the driver tabs only if the job-storage feature is enabled on the
Device Settings tab. To support job-storage features for complex jobs, or if you often print complex
graphics, print postscript (.PS) documents, or use many downloaded fonts, HP recommends that you
install additional memory, install a hard disk, or both. Added memory also gives you more flexibility in
supporting job-storage features. A minimum total memory of 288 MB is required to use the Proof and
Hold and Personal Job job-storage features. A hard disk is required to use the Quick Copy and
Stored Job job-storage features.

Job Storage Mode
Use the Job Storage Mode options on the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 and HP
LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP M575 product to store documents at the product and then control
their printing at the product control panel.
Both the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 and HP LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP M575
products offer the following Job Storage Mode options:
●
Off
●
Proof and Hold
●
Personal Job
●
Quick Copy
●
Stored Job
These options and the settings that control them are described below.
Off
When selected, this option turns the job-storage feature off (it is disabled), which means that the print
job will not be stored in the product.
Proof and Hold
To use the Proof and Hold option, the job-storage feature must be enabled.
When selected, this option stores the print job in memory and prints only the first copy of the job,
allowing you to check the first copy. If the document prints correctly, set the number of copies to print at
the control panel and then print the remaining copies of the print job. You can set the number of proofand-hold print jobs that can be stored in the product at the control panel.
NOTE: When using the Proof and Hold option, only one copy of the print job is sent to the printer
even if multiple copies are specified in the software application you print from. If multiple copies are
needed while using the Proof and Hold option, they must be specified at the control panel.
After it is released for printing, the proof-and-hold job is immediately deleted from the product. If more
copies are needed, you must reprint the job from the software program. If you send a second proofand-hold job to the product with the same user name and job name as an existing proof-and-hold job
104
Chapter 3 HP PCL 5, PCL 6, and PS emulation drivers for Windows®
ENWW
(and you have not released the original job for printing), the job overwrites the existing job. Proof-andhold jobs are deleted if you turn off the product.
NOTE: The product configuration can be set to hold a maximum of 50 quick-copy or proof-and-hold
jobs. The number is set at the product control panel in the CONFIGURATION menu, and the default is
32. When this preset limit is reached, the new document overwrites the oldest held document. Also, a
document that has the same user name and job name as one that is already stored on the printer hard
disk will overwrite the existing document.
Personal Job
To use the Personal Job option, the job-storage feature must be enabled.
When you select Personal Job, the print job is sent to the product, but is not printed until you request
the job at the product control panel. Selecting Personal Job activates the Make Job Private/
Secure group box.
If PIN to print is selected in the Make Job Private/Secure dropdown box, the print job can be
printed only after you type the correct PIN at the control panel. After the job is printed, it is immediately
deleted from the product. This feature is useful when you are printing sensitive or confidential
documents that you do not want to leave in an output bin after printing.
The PIN number for Personal Jobs must be exactly four digits (0 though 9). If non-numeric characters
are entered for the PIN number, they disappear from the input field. If more than four characters are
entered for the PIN number, the characters past the fourth are truncated. The default value for the PIN is
0000 for Personal Job.
If Encrypt Job (with password) is selected in the Make Job Private/Secure dropdown box,
the print job is sent and stored on the product encrypted. The password must be four to 32 digits (0
though 9). If non-numeric characters are entered for the password, the Confirm field will remain
grayed out. If more than 32 characters are entered for the password, the Confirm field is grayed out.
After the personal job is released for printing, it is immediately deleted from the product. If more copies
are needed, you must reprint the job from the software program. If you send a second personal job that
has the same user name and job name as an existing personal job (and you have not released the
original job for printing), the job overwrites the existing job, regardless of the PIN. Personal jobs are
deleted if you turn off the product.
Quick Copy
To use the Quick Copy option, a printer hard disk must be installed, and the job-storage feature must
be enabled.
When you select Quick Copy, the entire print job prints and a copy of the print job is stored on the
product, after which you can print additional copies of the print job at the product control panel. The
number of quick-copy print jobs that can be stored in the product is set by using the product control
panel.
NOTE: The product configuration can be set to hold a maximum of 50 quick-copy or proof-and-hold
jobs. The number is set at the product control panel in the CONFIGURATION menu, and the default is
32. When this preset limit is reached, the new document overwrites the oldest held document. Also, a
document that has the same user name and job name as one that is already stored on the printer hard
disk will overwrite the existing document. Quick Copy jobs are deleted if you turn off the product.
ENWW
Job Storage tab features
105
Stored Job
To use the Stored Job option, a hard disk must be installed on the product and the job-storage feature
must be enabled.
Use the Stored Job option to send a print job directly to the printer hard disk without printing it. The
print job is stored in the product as if it is an electronic file cabinet. After the print job is stored on the
printer hard disk, you can print the job at the product control panel.
The job remains stored in the product until it is deleted or overwritten by a document that has the same
user name and job name. Stored jobs remain on the printer hard disk when the product is turned off.
Use this feature for forms and other common or shared documents.
A stored job can be managed in two ways: as either a public or a private job .
To make a stored job public, set the Make Job Private/Secure dropdown box to None.
To make a stored job private, set the Make Job Private/Secure dropdown box to either PIN to
print or Encrypt Job (with password).
If PIN to print is selected in the Make Job Private/Secure dropdown box, the print job can be
printed only after you type the correct PIN at the control panel. After the job is printed, the job is
immediately deleted from the product. This feature is useful when you are printing sensitive or
confidential documents that you do not want to leave in an output bin after printing.
The PIN number must be exactly four digits (0 though 9). If non-numeric characters are entered for the
PIN number, they disappear from the input field. If more than four characters are entered for the PIN
number, the characters past the fourth are truncated.
Select Encrypt Job (with password) to set the private mode with encryption. In this mode, the print
job is sent and stored on the product encrypted.
The password must be four to 32 digits (0 though 9). If non-numeric characters are entered for the
password, the Confirm field will remain grayed out. If more than 32 characters are entered for the
password, the Confirm field is grayed out.
After the job is printed, the job remains in the product and can be printed again at the product control
panel.
The group box labeled Make Job Private/Secure is usually inactive. The PIN to print and
Encrypt Job (with password) options only become available when you select Stored Job or
Personal Job. If you select PIN to print or Encrypt Job (with password), you must type a PIN
or password to make the stored job private or else select None.
NOTE: A private stored job is not the same as a personal job. Personal jobs are deleted from the
product after they are printed. Private stored jobs are retained in the product after printing, but require
that a PIN be typed each time they are printed. A printer hard disk is required for Private stored jobs.
Make Job Private/Secure
The Make Job Private/Secure drop-down menu is available when Personal Job or Stored Job
is selected.
106

PIN to print
Select PIN to print from the drop-down menu, and then type a 4-digit PIN number in the box
provided. The personal or stored job is sent to the product, where you must enter the 4-digit PIN on the
control panel to retrieve the job. For more information on the PIN to print option, see Personal Job
on page 105
Encrypt Job (with password)
The option Encrypt Job with password provides end-to-end secure print job transmission with mutual
authentication on the supported devices. The print job is sent and stored encrypted, and can only be
printed after entering the password on the device.
Set a password for encrypting a job
1.
Enter a sequence of numeric characters, from 4 to 32 characters in length, in the Password
field. Each numeric character will accept numbers from 0 to 9.
2.
Confirm the password you entered by retyping it in the Confirm field.
NOTE: The key icon next to the Confirm field will change to green when you correctly retype
your password in the Confirm field.
NOTE: The Confirm field will be grayed out if you enter an invalid password (less than 4 or
greater than 32 characters, or characters other than 0 through 9) in the Password field.
3.
Select Save as default password to save your password and then click the Apply button.
NOTE: If Save as default password is not selected, the password is not saved even if you
print twice from the same application while the application is still open.
If Save as default password is selected with a password and used to print a job, and then
Save as default password is deselected at a later time, the password will still be used as the
default password.
User Name
Use the User Name settings to help identify the job at the product control panel. The following are the
User Name settings:
ENWW
●
User Name. This option associates your Windows® user name with the stored print job. The
Windows® user name automatically appears in the text field below the User Name options.
●
Custom. Use this option to type a custom name for the stored print job. When you click
Custom, the text field below the option becomes available. The User Name field can contain
no more than 16 characters, and is limited to A through Z and 0 through 9 because the name
appears on the product control-panel display. If you try to type a lowercase character, it
automatically shifts to uppercase. If you try to type a character in an ASCII code of fewer than 32
or more than 126 characters, the character is removed from the edit field, along with all of the
characters that follow it. If you try to type more than 16 characters, any character beyond 16 is
truncated.
Job Storage tab features
107
Job Name
Use the Job Name options to specify a name to identify the job at the product control panel. The
following are the Job Name settings:
●
<Automatic>. This option, which is the default selection, automatically generates the job name
that is associated with the stored print job. The file name of the print job is used if it is available to
the print driver. Otherwise, the software program name or a time stamp is used for the job name.
●
Custom. Use this to type a custom job name for the stored print job. When you click Custom,
the text field below the option becomes available. In those languages for which <Automatic>
cannot be translated without the use of invalid characters, the driver uses a string of three dashes.
The acceptable characters for job name and user name vary for each operating system. The string
must be of a length and type that can appear on the product control-panel display.
The Job Name field can contain no more than 16 characters, and is limited to A through Z
(uppercase or lowercase) and 0 through 9 so that the name can appear on the product control-panel
display. If you try to type a character in an ASCII code of fewer than 32 or more than 126 characters,
the character is removed from the edit field, along with all of the characters that follow it. If you try to
type more than 16 characters, any character beyond 16 is truncated.
When the dialog box is closed, or as soon as the focus is removed from the control (that is, when the
Tab key is pressed or another control is selected), an empty string is replaced with <Automatic>. The
acceptable characters for job name and user name vary for each operating system. The string must be
of a length and type that can appear on the product control-panel display.
If Job Name Exists. When you store a print job, you can create a print-job name or the product
software can assign one automatically. If a print job with the same name already exists, the new print
job will overwrite the existing print job. To eliminate the chances of a new print job overwriting an old
print job because both have the same name, select Use Job Name + (1-99). After you create the
print job name, or when one is created automatically, the product software assigns a number between
1 and 99 to the end of the print job name to make the name unique. Select Replace Existing File if
you always want the product software to overwrite an existing print job with the same print job name.
Job Notification Options
Clicking a Job Storage Mode selection causes the User Name and Job Name options to
become available. The Display Job ID when printing check box is selected by default. The
Display Job ID when printing option causes a pop-up dialog box to appear when the job-storage
print job is printed. The dialog box shows the user name and job name that are associated with the
stored print job, as well as the printer name, port, and location.

Use the General setting group to control Edge Control settings for all color printing.
Edge Control determines how edges are rendered. Edge Control consists of three components:
●
Adaptive Halftoning, which increases edge sharpness
●
Trapping, which reduces the effect of color plane misregistration by slightly overlapping the edges
of adjacent objects
●
Color Resolution Enhancement Technology (C-REt), which increases the apparent resolution by
placing each dot for the smoothest edges
The Edge Control option offers four settings:
112
●
Off. The Off setting turns Trapping, Adaptive Halftoning, and C-REt to Off.
●
Light. The Light setting provides minimal trapping. Adaptive Halftoning is set to On and C-REt is
set to On.
●
Normal. The Normal setting provides the default trapping settings. Adaptive Halftoning is set to
On, and C-REt is set to On.
●
Maximum. The Maximum setting provides the most trapping. Adaptive Halftoning is set to
On, and C-REt is set to On.

Neutral Grays
The Neutral Grays drop-down menu controls the selection of a device-dependent color table that is
embedded in the product firmware. You can adjust the Neutral Grays setting independently for text,
graphics, or photographs. The following options are available:
●
Black Only. This option generates neutral colors (grays and black) by using only black toner.
This option guarantees that neutral colors do not have a color cast. Black Only is the default
setting for the Text and Graphics components.
●
4-Color. This option generates neutral colors by combining all four colors of toner, which
produces smoother gradients and transitions to non-neutral colors. It also produces the darkest
possible black. 4-Color is the default setting for Photographs.
Halftone
The Halftone setting controls the selection of a product-dependent halftone algorithm that is
embedded in the product firmware. Halftoning is a method by which the product mixes the four primary
colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) in varying proportions to create the appearance of many
colors. The Halftone options affect the resolution and clarity of the color on the printed page. You can
select Halftone settings for text, graphics, and photographs independently.
The following Halftone options are available:
●
Detail. This is the default option; it is useful for text and graphics that require sharp distinctions
among lines or colors, or for images that contain a pattern or a high level of detail. Select this
option for sharp edges and detail.
●
Smooth. This option provides better results for large, solid-filled print areas. It also enhances
photographs by smoothing out fine color gradations. Select this option for uniform and smooth
area fills.
Print in Grayscale
Click the Print in Grayscale option to print a color document in black and white. Use this option to
print color documents for photocopying or faxing. The Print in Grayscale option does not control how
data is sent to the printer, only how the image is printed.

Custom Profile
Default (sRGB)
Select Default (sRGB) for most printing needs. This setting instructs the product to interpret RGB color
as sRGB, which is the accepted standard of Microsoft and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
Colors are matched to optimize the RGB colors on the screen and to provide vivid images and
graphics.
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 that
software program and allow the print driver 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.
Custom Profile
Select Custom Profile when you want to duplicate the printed output from other products or for using
special effects. This setting instructs the product to use a custom profile to emulate color output from
another product by modifying how color is rendered.
The default custom profile is an emulation of the color table used on the HP Color LaserJet 4650
product. The product holds only one custom profile at a time, so when you download and install
another color table, it erases the default color table and installs the new one.
You can download custom profiles from the following Web site:

If you are using the HP PCL 6 print driver for Windows®, the HP EasyColor technology automatically
improves mixed-content documents that are printed from Microsoft Office programs. This technology
scans documents and automatically adjusts photographic images in .JPEG or .PNG format.
HP EasyColor technology enhances the entire image at one time, rather than dividing it into several
pieces, which results in improved color consistency, sharper details, and faster printing.
In the following example, the images on the left were created without using the HP EasyColor option.
The images on the right show the enhancements that result from using the HP EasyColor option.

Device Settings tab features
NOTE: The Device Settings tab is located on the Properties tab set.
Available options depend on the feature. The following figure shows the Device Settings tab.
Figure 3-21 Device Settings tab
The Device Settings tab contains controls for paper-handling devices and controls for managing the
product.
The Device Settings tab contains the following controls:
●
Form to Tray Assignment
●
Font Substitution Table
●
Installable Options
Form to Tray Assignment
A network administrator can use Form to Tray Assignment to specify the paper size in each input
tray.
Both the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 and the HP LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP
M575 products support 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.
ENWW
Device Settings tab features
119
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.

Automatic Configuration
Use the Device Settings tab to tell the driver about the hardware configuration of the product. If
bidirectional communication is enabled in a supported environment, update this tab by selecting the
Update Now setting in the Automatic Configuration setting. The default setting is Off. After an
automatic configuration, the setting returns to Off after the changes are made.
If your environment does not support bidirectional communication, the Update Now setting is
unavailable, so you must manually configure the options on this tab.
If you have more than one driver installed for the product (for example, the default HP PCL 6 Print
Driver and the HP PCL 5 Universal Print Driver), the Update Now feature works automatically only on
the driver on which it is activated. The other driver will not be updated, and might show the default
setting for the specific product model.
Printer Status Notification
When enabled, this option displays a small status-notification window in the lower-right corner of the
screen. This window is visible while printing a document or while viewing the print driver settings. It
provides information about the status of the document being printed as well as information about the
printer, including the current status of the printer supplies.
NOTE: Printer Status Notification is automatically disabled in enterprise networks with more than 100
users.
Tray 3
This control specifies whether you have Tray 3, an additional 500-sheet tray, installed on the product.
Duplex Unit (for 2-Sided Printing)
Set the Duplex Unit (for 2-Sided Printing) to Installed if your product has a duplexer installed.
Duplexing allows printing on both sides of any supported size and most types of paper (except
transparencies, envelopes, and labels).
NOTE: Both the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 and the HP LaserJet Enterprise color
flow MFP M575 products support smart duplexing. The product uses the smart duplexing feature to
detect information on both sides of the print job pages and only runs the pages through the duplexing
unit if printable information appears on the second side of the page.
Allow Manual Duplexing
Select Allow Manual Duplexing to print on both sides of any supported size and most types of
paper (except transparencies, envelopes, and labels). To use this feature, you must reinsert the paper
stack into the input tray to print the second side. The product pauses while you make this adjustment.

When this option is installed, the Job Storage option and the Mopier Mode are enabled in the
print driver. Use the Job Storage option to store print jobs and then print them later from the control
panel. The multiple-original print (mopy) function is an HP-designed feature that produces multiple,
collated copies from a single print job.
Job Storage
When Job Storage is enabled, the product can store print jobs so that you can gain access to those
print jobs later at the control panel.
Secure Printing
The new HP UPD option Encrypt Job (with password) is available for use with this printer and
provides end-to-end secure print job transmission with mutual authentication on the supported devices.
The print job is sent and stored encrypted, and can only be printed after entering the password on the
device.
Setting this to disabled results in the setting Encrypt Job not to be listed under Make Job Private/
Secure on the Job Storage tab.
The default is Automatic, enabling the setting to be selected from the Job Storage tab.
Job Separator
Use this control to specify whether a print job identifier page should be printed between print jobs. The
Job Separator feature is disabled by default.
Once the job separator page feature is enabled, follow these steps to select it:

Configure the separator page and select OK.
Mopier Mode
The multiple-original print (mopy) function is an HP-designed feature that produces multiple, collated
copies from a single print job. Multiple-original printing (mopying) increases performance and reduces
network traffic by transmitting the job to the product once, and then storing it in memory or on the hard
disk. The remainder of the copies are printed at the fastest speed. All documents that are printed in
mopier mode can be created, controlled, managed, and finished from the computer, which eliminates
the extra step of using a photocopier.
Both the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 and HP LaserJet Enterprise color flow MFP M575
support the transmit-once mopying feature when the Mopier Mode: setting on the Device Settings
tab is Enabled.
When you use the HP PCL 6 Print Driver, mopying is performed in one of two ways: either through the
software or through the product hardware. When mopier mode is enabled, mopying takes place
through the product hardware. One copy of a multiple-page print job is transmitted once through the
network to the product, together with a printer job language (PJL) command directing the product to
make the specified number of copies.
When you disable mopier mode, you are not necessarily disabling multiple collated copies, which the
driver can still perform through the software rather than the product hardware (the mopying path that is
disabled when you change the Mopier Mode setting to Disabled). However, a multiple-copy print
job that is sent when the mopier is disabled loses the advantage of transmitting the print job once,
because the job is sent through the network for each collated copy.
126
Chapter 3 HP PCL 5, PCL 6, and PS emulation drivers for Windows®
ENWW
Mopier mode and collation
Mopying and collating print jobs are independent but closely related functions. Mopying, the ability to
send original print jobs to the product, is performed by the print driver. Collating can be controlled by
either the print driver or the document software program. The mopying mode is selected by default in
the driver, and can be disabled by changing the Mopier Mode setting on the Device Settings tab
to Disabled.
Control collation through the print driver by selecting or clearing the Collated check box on the
Advanced tab. Click Copy Count under the Paper Output setting. You can clear the check box,
which is available only when the Copy Count option is set to more than 1 copy, to allow the software
program to control collation.
To receive uncollated multiple copies of a print job, you must clear the Collated check box on the print
dialog screen and make sure that the software program collation feature is not selected.
The following table shows the relation between mopier mode settings and collation settings in the
software program and the driver. The first three columns show the settings; the last column, "Expected
result", shows how a 3-page print job would appear.

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
email 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 email or by posting it to an HP Web site.
The tool is compatible with Windows® XP, Windows Vista®, and Windows® 7.
The File to E-mail utility runs with any MAPI-compliant email applications. It does not run with Webbased email 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 email 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 doubleclick FileToEmail.exe to open the utility. The utility generates files, opens an email 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 email 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 email
them separately.
