Hewlett Packard HP LaserJet 1020
Basic Driver Printer
Use this download package if you are updating the printer driver from a previous install or you want to add the printer driver. The driver contained in this download package is the driver compatible with Windows 98 and Windows ME.
As of June 30, 2007, HP's license to redistribute Microsoft's USB files for Windows 98 has expired and cannot be renewed. Thus, this Windows 98 driver does not include the Microsoft's USB files. The driver will install successfully on the USB port of a Windows 98 system if an HP printer has been successfully installed on the USB port on the system previously. The successful previous installation would have copied the USB files onto the Windows 98 operating system. So, if the Microsoft USB files are already on the Windows 98 system, then this driver, which does not include the Microsoft USB files, will install successfully.
Installing the printer over network (TCP/IP) or on the LPT port successfully does not require the Microsoft USB files. Since the Windows Millennium operating system has the Microsoft USB files, this driver should install successfully without a previous installation of an HP printer.
Operating system(s): Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows ME
