This guide replaces the LaserJet 1012 Vista driver installation guide.

If you have a Legacy HP LaserJet HP no longer supports and does not provide drivers for or you want a single driver that works for your fleet, this guide will show you how to install and use the HP UPD on your Windows system.

Note: Some printers may have problems with their respective utilities using this driver. This most commonly affects older models like the P2015, P2035, P2055 and M401 series.

HP typically ships the UPD with newer printers, but may customize the driver if the utilities are printer specific. As such, utility availability cannot be guaranteed.

  1. Due to the general nature of this guide, specific languages are not covered. The HP UPD supports PCL6, PCL5 and PostScript. Find out what print languages your printer supports. This printer (LaserJetPro 400 M401n) supports PCL6, PCL5 and PostScript. PCL6 is recommended for this printer.

    • If you use USB, plug your printer in now.

  2. I knew what my printer used and what driver was ideal in advance. Depending on which printer you currently have, you have may have many or few language options. Once you know what print languages your printer supports, download the best one for your printer. The driver can be found on the HP website.

  3. This method copies the driver files to your computer. If you connect a new printer and don't install the printer specific driver, this can be used in place of that driver. At the installation screen, select USB mode- Plug and Play. Once you select the mode, pick the options you wish to use. While these settings can be changed, they should be left alone unless you understand what you're doing.

  4. This installation method is only supported with networked printers. USB printers are not supported. After the driver loads, agree to the license agreement. Once you agree to the license agreement, you will be asked which installation mode you want to use. At this point, select Dynamic Mode and click Next.

    • After selecting Dynamic Mode, click Next. The printer driver will be installed, along with a universal printer.

    • Once the driver is installed, additional configuration is required. All printers you wish to use will need to be configured over IP in Devices and Printers, which needs to be done manually.

  5. This install procedure is required when using the HP UPD as a substitute driver. Note: If you have attempted driver installation through the Dynamic Mode universal printer, this method can be used to correct bad installations. If you are installing the printer over USB, USB_001 is considered a "safe" port. Unless you use a special configuration, this port generally works in most scenarios. Older printers may use the DOT4 protocol. If this is the case, the port will need to be changed from USB_001 to DOT4. Find Devices and Printers. The location varies based on which version of Windows you run, but this can be found in Control panel. Windows 8.x: Search for "Devices and Printers"; Windows 10: Search for Control panel and find Devices and Printers.

    • The printer name does not need to be changed, but this makes identification easier.

    • Name your printer. Once a name is selected, click Next.
